Keeping Awake – The Innocence Mission
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.
