into the west lyrics – annie lennox

lay down
your sweet and weary head
night is falling
you’ve come to journey’s end
sleep now
and dream of the ones who came before
they are calling
from across the distant sh*r*

why do you weep?
what are these tears upon your face?
soon you will see
all of your fears will p*ss away
safe in my arms
you’re only sleeping

[chorus]
what can you see
on the horizon?
why do the white gulls call?
across the sea
a pale moon rises
the ships have come to carry you home

and all will turn
to silver gl*ss
a light on the water
all souls p*ss

hope fades
into the world of night
through shadows falling
out of memory and time
don’t say: «we have come now to the end»
white sh*r*s are calling
you and i will meet again

and you’ll be here in my arms
just sleeping

[chorus]

and all will turn
to silver gl*ss
a light on the water
grey ships p*ss
into the west
