"And Dream of Sheep" as written by and Kate / Bush....
Little light shining
Little light will guide them to me
My face is all lit up
My face is all lit up
If they find me racing white horses
They'll not take me for a buoy

Let me be weak, let me sleep and dream of sheep
Oh I'll wake up to any sound of engines
Every gull a seeking craft
I can't keep my eyes open
Wish I had my radio
I'd tune into some friendly voices

Talking 'bout stupid things
I can't be left to my imagination
Let me be weak, let me sleep and dream of sheep
Ooh, their breath is warm
And they smell like sleep
And they say they take me home
Like poppies, heavy with seed
They take me deeper and deeper

    General CommentWhilst this woman is in danger of drowning she has two conflicting thoughts. One is trying to stay awake - hence wishing she had a radio - otherwise if she falls asleep she might drown. The other voice actually welcomes death as she is so exhausted and afraid that a peaceful death in her sleep is preferable to the long struggle for survival in the cold harsh sea. If she sleeps and dies then she believes she will be taken somewhere more comforting.
