Into the West/Big Emotions

Lay down

Your sweet and weary head

Night is falling
You’ve 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

[Chorus]
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 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

[Chorus]

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

What is it about this song that almost made me burst into tears in Kyle’s living room??

I’m not entirely sure that my friend’s- my long sought after community- are aware of how important these last 6 or so months have been for me. I don’t have the words to articulate what they have meant to me. I wish I did, but I just don’t.
