night so still lyrics – catie curtis

i turn on the hallway light
i am up again at night
i’ve got my window seat
got a light that shines down to the street

in the day i think i can
but at night i think again
got these worries on my mind
and i’ll organize them one more time.

and if i hold the night so still
i know i’ll be alright until
the morning

oh, the darkness makes me smaller
and the world seems that much taller
sometimes i worry i’ll get what i hoped
and i’ll have to stand up and sing the songs i wrote

but if i hold the night so still
i know i’ll be alright until
the morning

oh, a walk would do me good
but i don’t trust the neighborhood
i could call my west coast friends
and say “hey, i’m up again”

i let my mind run through the house
pretty soon i’m tired out
empty my pockets, take off my shoes
in sleep i will join you.

can you hold the night this still
so i will be alright until
the morning
