Your eyes look heavy, let them fall, gain your strength.
I'll keep a vigil 'til Aurora calls from her bed.
Rest your head, lie back and dream of finer things.
My eyes are open to watch you sleep under night's wings.
I'll see the sun sink beneath the line, the light dissolves.
Plunged into darkness whilst the earth revolves.
I'll tend the fire 'til everything burns and the ash it flies.
A wooden star, ablaze in the dirt, in the eventide.
In my house you will be safe, I'll cover you.
I am here, I'm wide awake to see the night through.
Wide awake.
Lift your head, awake, the day will soon be here.
A burning beacon in the sky has fast appeared.
It brings a warmth, a hope, a welcome deity.
Heralding a virgin light that summons us to leave.
Although the dying sparks of flame are fading on the hearth,
And clear skies bring in the cold, the heat is there in our hearts.
Now the shadows have gone and fled and so the coast is clear.
Safe from harm under the watchful eye of a glowing sphere.
