Vigilance

Words: Eric / Music: Eric and Dachshund

Sleep well, my child
let your dreams flow naturally
We listen at night
We watch your everything.

I hear your prayers
I know your fears
I soak up your tears
I sit with you through the nightmares.

My network is vast
Spanning where the shadows rest
In the trenches of night
I pluck your dreams from there mid-flight

And I’ll be there,
one step behind
in your shadows.
And I’ll be there,
whispering to you,
reaching for
your
soul…
your soul…

I’m so near you now
I can hear your breath coming out
in fluttering whispers
gently crossing the lips of your mouth

My network is vast
Spanning where the shadows rest
In the trenches of night
I pluck your dreams from there mid-flight

And I’ll be there,
one step behind
in your shadows.
And I’ll be there,
whispering to you,
reaching for
your
soul…
your soul…
