"Tiger in the night" as written by and Mike Batt....
You are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
You are the one who keeps me strong in this world
You sleep by the silent cooling streams
Down in the darkness of my dreams
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I'd see come true
You are the tiger burning bright
I was the one who looked so hard I could not see.
Now I could never live without the love you give to me.
I lived like a wild and lonely soul,
Lost in a dream beyond control.
You were the one who brought me home down to earth.
For you are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I'd see come true
You are the tiger burning bright

    General CommentThis for me is by far the best song on the album. It has a very mellow vibe, and you are carried away by Katie's voice. It is simply beautiful.

    General CommentFor me, this song might have to do with a father figure. Tigers are depicted in a vast amount of ways, so it's hard to say, but what we can say is that tigers are mystifying, silent and fearful creatures. At first I thought it wasn't about a person at all but an idea, and not a happy one, but she needs it to feel good but now I'm sure whatever it is, Katie feels like it keeps the darkness contained in her dreams. Who knows, but it's such an interesting song. Below is an expert that I knew that closely resembled the lyrics:

    "Tyger! Tyger! Burning bright
    In the forests of the night,
    What immortal hand or eye
    Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"
    ~William Blake, "The Tyger", Songs of Experience
