Can the gracious night, learn to protect us
The sun sealed the day, after painting canvas sky beautifully
And now I watch the people rolling by my window
Wondering if they have found what they are looking for
‘Cause every little one has, a sad song inside that will forever
Keep us alive

So where are you oh my listless one
Are you still there writhing in what is gone because
If we don’t go within then we may go without
Elation left to follow the silhouette of secrets
Protruding evening perhaps searching for
A new world before, before they die
Because every little thing wants to give its gift to this silent world
Before they die
Die

Where are you oh listless one
are you still there, writhing. Sing a sad song
and we'll protect our love, and oh how I long for
The rolling hills covered in nothing green grass
Where our thoughts will then touch our skin

Can the gracious night learn to protect us
The sun sealed the day, after painting canvas sky beautifully
And now I watch the people rolling by my window
Wondering if they have found what they are looking for
‘Cause every little one has, a sad song inside that will forever
Keep us alive

‘Cause every little thing wants to give its gift to this silent world
Before they die
Die

    General Commentthis is one of the few BHC songs i hadn't heard until just recently. My Animal has got to be by far the greatest album there is. ever. and this is one of the most emotional songs that CRegg sings- along with Turning Inwards. those 2 songs are so beautiful, sad, and precious. i have no idea what i'd do if my friend Tim hadn't introduced me to them!!!
