lyrics

Starlight shining ever bright
Take me now
I've earned my right
For 90 years
I've lived through night
And 5 years mourned
My true love's plight

I wish I may,
How I wish I might
Never greet the morning light
Never greet the morning light

Gonna lay me down
Underground
Gonna lay me down
To get found

Gonna lay me down
Underground
Gonna lay me down
If I wanna be found

For, now I lay me down to sleep
I have not left one tear to weep
But I have time I cannot keep
And think in rhymes I cannot speak

Breath is faint
My pulse is weak
Take me on,
Into the deep
Take me on,
Into the deep

Gonna lay me down
Underground
Gonna lay me down
To get found

Gonna lay me down
Underground
Gonna lay me down
To get found

Gonna lay me down
Gonna lay me down
Gonna lay me down

I’m fast asleep...
