Oh draw the blinds
We can shut out the night
Pull up the blankets
Pull the blankets up tight
And there are angels on our curtains
They keep the outside out
And there are lions on our curtains
They lick their wounds
They lick their doubt

    General CommentThis song has some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard. I love listening to it while driving in the rain.

    It seems as if he is talking about a child who is afraid of the dark and the things the child does to make himself feel better about it.
