Last night I found it
Your voice was a blanket
And it covered me
Until I couldn't breathe
I couldn't breathe

My mother the tailor
When she was a young girl
They'd say "Nora, c'mere,
can you alter our fears?
Cause we wrap up our bodies
down to our toes
But as hard as we try it,
our eyes won't stay closed

Oh, we can't sleep
No, we can't breathe"

And quietly she buckled down on her knees
and with her little needle
she wove them into their beds
and as they clasped their hands
in prayer she sang

Oh, we can't sleep
No, we can't breathe
Cause we wrap up our bodies
down to our toes
But as hard as we try it
our eyes won't stay closed
Oh
