Liricí AmhránSong Lyrics


Written by Charles Anthony Silvestri

Music by Eric Whitacre

The evening hangs beneath the moon
A silver thread on darkened dune
With closing eyes and resting head
I know that sleep is coming soon
Upon my pillow, safe in bed
A thousand pictures fill my head
I cannot sleep, my mind's aflight
And yet my limbs seem made of lead
[SAT] If there are noises in the night
A frightening shadow, flickering light
[B] If there are noises in the night, in the night
Then I surrender unto sleep
Where clouds of dream give second sight
What dreams may come, both dark and deep
[SA] Of flying wings and soaring leap
As I surrender unto sleep?
(Repeat 3x)
[TB] Dark and deep
(Repeat 3x)
[Join] ...dark, unto sleep?
(Repeat at least 10x)
