"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 Comment'Ev'ry gull a seeking craft...' - The gulls can fly to safety, but she must wait to be rescued...

    ‘And dream of sheep./Ooh, their breath is warm/And they smell like sleep…’
    - see THE SHEEP UNDER THE SNOW (William Kennish, W.H. Gill, etc.)
    - Shepherds searching for sheep lost in snow use probing-poles; "round breathing-holes" are formed by the heat of the sheep’s breath in the snow, which afford them partial ventilation and also attract the scent of the dog/rescuer/The Good Shepherd.
