For whom there crows spies over fields of rice
of water lotus stream a plant with dew

I will bring for you
little lovely dream
a little love-ly dream

dear eyes good night, in a golden light
the stars around you will bleed

for you I will press, soft caress

little lovely dream

sweet sweet shut your eyes
the wild fireflies
the wild fireflies dancing through the fairy name

straight from the poppy bowl it was for you I stole
and just for you I stole a still little lovely dream

hush demon baby, your time will soon come
your sleep will be broken by temper tantrum

hush demon darlin, rest while you may
for strife comes a living and working with the day

sleep momma dearest
the tear upon my heart

sleep sleep my darling
sleep sleep sleep on
sleep sleep my darling
sleep sleep sleep on

I have brought for you a little lovely dream
a little love-ly dream

when dawn lights the skies
open my eyes

    General CommentI couldn't help but gain a severe respect for Native American culture, not to mention for this band for being influenced by such an interesting culture.
