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 the 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...

All will turn to
silver glass
The light on the water...all souls pass

Hope fades into the world of night
Through shadows falling 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
The light on the
water...
Grey ships pass into the west...
