  • Lyrics
  • Little light shining
    Little light will guide them to me
    My face is all lit up
    My face is all lit up
    If they find me racing white horses
    They'll not take me for a buoy

    Let me be weak, let me sleep and dream of sheep
    Oh I'll wake up to any sound of engines
    Every gull a seeking craft
    I can't keep my eyes open
    Wish I had my radio
    I'd tune into some friendly voices

    Talking 'bout stupid things
    I can't be left to my imagination
    Let me be weak, let me sleep and dream of sheep
    Ooh, their breath is warm
    And they smell like sleep
    And they say they take me home
    Like poppies, heavy with seed
    They take me deeper and deeperWriter/s: KATE BUSH
