I think it's going to be all right
I think it's going to be just fine
I think it's going to get much better than before

I think we're going to see the sun
I think we're going to have some fun
I think we're going walk out through the open door

And maybe when we wake up in the morning
Maybe when the darkness starts to fade
Maybe in a paper boat we'll both just float away

Underneath the river trees
Off towards a lazy sea
Underneath the bridge that carries people home

Past the church where Jesus saves
Up and down upon the waves
Sailing off towards adventures of our own

Maybe when we wake up in the morning
Maybe when the darkness starts to fade
Maybe in a paper boat we'll both just float away

Maybe when we wake up in the morning
Maybe when the trumpet starts to play
Maybe in a paper boat we'll both just float away

I think it's going to be good fun

    General CommentThe french bit is from the recording... it was at the Black Sessions in 1998. I wish it were a recorded song though...

    Close our eyes, and go to sleep and, maybe, when we wake up in the morning, the troubles will be over. I'm not sure if they mean they'll die in their sleep (When the trumpet starts to play / when the darkness starts to fade).
