night is a friend
sun it sleeps again
moon waits at the window
while the violins descend

and i'll pretend
i'm a senator yes i am
and you be the bride
with a bird caught in your smile

and while you're asleep
somebody pulls the puppet strings
and your blue thing
goes singing out in a cornfield after all

and i'd be the nurse
and doctor to your ills
your water, your pills
and your nervous daffodils

and i'd be the judge
and punish every bruise
and i would be the jailor to thee
but i know that it's no use

'cause while i'm asleep
somebody sets you free

and you just pretend
that you don't understand
with a tear stain sky
and a train crash in your eye

so you be the stranger
and you be the prize
locked in some eternity
that we don't realise

but while you're asleep
somebody steals your eyes
and your blue thing
goes singing out in a cornfield after all
