Joy Williams – Before I Sleep lyrics

Oh, ghosts keep whispering
Oh, the feather of a raven's wing turned white by the bird's cheeks
Ooh, this chill, when it gonna leave my bones?
Take the ache so I can go
And be washed in the wilderness

Oh, carry my body 'cross the frozen ground
While the moon burns bright and the fire fades out

I got miles and miles to go before I sleep
Before I can feel anything, before I'm free
I got miles and miles to go before I sleep

Wind blows, covers every single track
If I wanted to, I couldn't go back
Oh, I just keep stumbling
Oh, and it's a sinned kiss facing unforgiving winds
Feel the cold, it's creeping in, oh
And I just keep stumbling on

Oh, carry my body 'cross the frozen ground
While the moon burns

I got miles and miles to go before I sleep
Before I can feel anything, before I'm free
I got miles and miles and miles

Til the dark gives way to dawn
Til the winter, can't hold on
I'll crawl tonight, can't walk til I run

I've got miles and miles to go before I sleep
And I've got miles and miles to go before I weep
Before I can dream or feel anything
I got miles and miles to go before I sleep
Oh, before I can feel anything, before I'm free
I got miles and miles to go before I sleep
Before I sleep
