I turn on the hallway light
I am up again at night
I've got my window seat
Got a light that shines down to the street
In the day I think I can
But at night I think again
Got these worries on my mind
And I'll organize them one more time.
And if I hold the night so still
I know I'll be alright until
The morning
Oh, the darkness makes me smaller
And the world seems that much taller
Sometimes I worry I'll get what I hoped
And I'll have to stand up and sing the songs I wrote
But if I hold the night so still
I know I'll be alright until
The morning
Oh, a walk would do me good
But I don't trust the neighborhood
I could call my West Coast friends
And say "hey, I'm up again"
I let my mind run through the house
Pretty soon I'm tired out
Empty my pockets, take off my shoes
In sleep I will join you.
Can you hold the night this still
So I will be alright until
The morning
