Nighttime
Lyrics by Joe Hayes


Years of my life
Sitting up on a fence
Hiding in a daydream
Biding my time
Breathing in the ether
Swaying with the breeze
Head in the clouds and
Waiting for a perfect day

The earth spins slowly
And the landscape is rolling
Night is descending
And I’m gently pulled away
Starlight is flowing
And the moonshine is glowing
Lights up my shadow
And I’m gently pulled away

Enchantment in disguise
When I’m closing my eyes
Animated in my dreams
Sleeping in the present
No future or past
Fully unaware and blissful to the last

The earth spins slowly
And the landscape is rolling
Night is descending
And I’m gently pulled away
Starlight is flowing
And the moonshine is glowing
Lights up my shadow
And I’m gently pulled away

Do I save the candle
Or play the game
Try as I might
I can’t hold on to the flame

Sleeping in Nocturne’s arms
Lucid reverie
Stroll through the constellations
I’m adrift in the sea
The hourglass quiets
The last grain falls
I open my eyes
Above my pall
Idled away my day in the sun
Wide awake now that sleep has come

The earth spins slowly
And the landscape is rolling
Night is descending
And I’m gently pulled away
Starlight is flowing
And the moonshine is glowing
Lights up my shadow
And I’m gently pulled away

The breadth of our lives
Is a gentle flame
Nurtured day by day
To be kept untamed
Down wild paths we roam
To find what fortune may
Or keep yourself at home
And dream your life away
