  1. Ad Somnum

From the recording Desolate Heaven

I composed this on my bike upon a lovely evening commute on the backroads.

Lyrics

Now it’s so nice to lay me downJust as the lights all over townBegin to nod their heads and blinkAnd settle down for weary winks
The animals can’t keep their eyesFrom drooping under darkling skiesAnd breathing slow and steadilyBeneath the humming heavenlies
Chorus:Rest, quiet restSleep, silent sleepHope, loving hopeLove, hopeful love
An evening prayer the crickets sangAnd I beneath my breath and blanketMurmured thanks and dreaming driftedAmong the memories calm and liquid
Chorus:Rest, quiet restSleep, silent sleepHope, loving hopeLove, hopeful love
Bridge:Lullaby, lullabyAah Aah AahClose your eyes, whisper sighsAah Aah Aah
And it’s so nice to lay me downJust as the lights all over townBegin to nod their heads and blinkAnd settle down for weary winks
Chorus:Rest, quiet restSleep, silent sleepHope, loving hopeLove, hopeful love
