Into The West by Annie Lennox

What do you think?

Until now I don’t have a story, but everytime I’m afraid someone might pass away someday, I think this song really takes away any fear. Please put it in one list, it is so beautiful it makes me cry everytime I listen to it. Greetings from Germany! Lisa xx

Lyrics

Lay down, 
your sweet and weary head.
Night is falling. 
You have come to journey’s end.

Sleep now, and dream 
of the ones who came before.
They are calling, 
from across a distant shore.

Why do you weep? 
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see.
All of your fears will pass away.
Safe in my arms, 
you’re only sleeping.

What can you see,
on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea,
a pale moon rises.
The ships have come,
to carry you home.

 

And all will turn, 
to silver glass.
A light on the water.
All souls pass.

Hope fades,
Into the world of night.
Through shadows calling,
Out of memory and time.

Don’t say, 
We have come now to the end.
White shores are calling.
You and I will meet again.
And you’ll be here in my arms,
Just sleeping.

What can you see,
on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea,
a pale moon rises.
The ships have come,
to carry you home.

And all will turn, 
to silver glass.
A light on the water.
Grey ships pass
Into the West.
