lyrics

Turn on the light, all will be right
Let wither the world’s parade.
End of the day words on a page
Will leave us with none to explain.
Open the window, watch as they rise
and swirl in the salty night air
A murmur of starlings — just listen now
it’s time to close your eyes.
Pages turn, nothing else matters now
You’ll be my someone to read to at night
Your heart could be stirred, the reader, the word,
not every cloud brings a storm.
Let the rain come, the dark then the sun
will rise on another day.
Silence the voices inside your head
that sing you a dissonant tune;
Clear as a prayer, both sooth and sayer
You have someone to read to at night.
Pages turn, nothing else matters now
I’ll be your someone to read to at night
Outside the stars will fly counterclockwise,
though clouds will obscure the view.
Don’t think of anything let the world go on
spinning me into you.
Pages turn, nothing else matters now.
I’ll be your someone to read to at night
