hearing your voice in the blue light,
calming people in the house,
traveling upstairs -
good to be there
now, right now

Oh, I'm near to sleeping, I'm keeping awake.
Oh, I'm near to sleeping, I'm keeping awake,
hearing your voice in the house, in the house,
hearing your voice in the house

Under those trees we will all be
sitting, blankets down.
It's tomorrow, yes it is.

My room is held in someone's arms,
my bed is held in someone's arms.
I am-I'm held now
In the house,
in the heart of paper vines,
Junie runs into her room
next to mine, Dancing.
And we are all in for the night.
Talking is coming,
is coming up over the stairs.

    General Commentthis song has a lot of meaning for me... i live far away from my family and close friends, and often i listen to it and cry as i travel to visit them , anticipating the warmth of our togetherness...the late nights.. the stupidity.... and just those words about being near sleeping but keeping awake... at special times like that you can be dog tired but you just want to live for that moment.... your love is more precious than your life....
