As I Lay Me Down (Album Version) Lyrics

 

As I Lay Me Down (Album Version) - Sophie B. Hawkins

It felt like spring time on this February morning

 

In a courtyard birds were singing your praise

 

I'm still recalling things you said to make me feel alright

I carried them with me today

 

Now

As I lay me down to sleep

This I pray

 

That you will hold me dear

 

Though I'm far away

 

I'll whisper your name into the sky

 

And I will wake up happy

I wonder why I feel so high

 

Though I am not above the sorrow

 

Heavy hearted

Till you call my name

And it sounds like church bells

 

Or the whistle of a train

On a summer evening

I'll run to meet you

Barefoot, barely breathing

 

As I lay me down to sleep ooh la kah koh

This I pray

That you will hold me dear

 

Though I'm far away

I'll whisper your name into the sky ooh la kah koh

And I will wake up happy

 

Oh, darling

As I lay me down to sleep ooh la kah koh

This I pray

That you will hold me dear

 

Though I'm far away

 

I'll whisper your name into the sky ooh la kah koh

And I will wake up happy

 

It's not too near for me

 

Like a flower I need the rain

Though it's not clear to me

 

Every season has it's change

 

And I will see you

When the sun comes out again

 

As I lay me down to sleep ooh la kah koh

This I pray

That you will hold me dear

 

Though I'm far away

 

I'll whisper your name into the sky ooh la kah koh

And I will wake up happy

 

As I lay me down to sleep ooh la kah koh

This I pray

 

That you will hold me dear

 

Though I'm far away

 

I'll whisper your name into the sky ooh la kah koh

 

And I will wake up happy

 

I wonder why ooh la kah koh

 

When the sun comes out again ooh la kah koh

When the sun comes out again

When the sun comes out again

When the sun comes out again oh

 

When the sun comes out again

 

When the sun comes out again mmh ooh la kah koh

I will wake up happy ooh la kah koh

 

This I pray

...

 

Ooh la kah koh
