Be Still

Be still

and go on to bed 

Nobody knows what lies ahead

Life is short

to say the least

We’re in the belly of the beast

Be still

Wild and young

Young may your innocence reign

Like shells on the shore

and may your limits be unknown

and your efforts be your own

If you ever feel

you can’t take it anymore

Don’t break character

you’ve got a lot of heart

Is this real or just a dream?

Oh, rise up like the sun and

labor till the work is done.

Be still..

one day you’ll leave

Fearlessness on your sleeves

When you come back

tell me what did you see?

Was there something out there for me?

Be still..

Close your eyes

Soon enough you’ll be on your own

steady and straight

And if they drag you through the mud,

it doesn’t change what’s in your blood

Don’t break character

you’ve got a lot of heart

Is this real or just a dream?

Oh, rise up like the sun and

labor till the work is done.

Be still..

Be still..

Be still..

Be still..

Over rock and chain

Over sunset plain

Over trap and snare

When you’re in too deep

In your wildness dream

In your made up schemes

When they knock you down

When they knock you down

Don’t break character

you’ve got a lot of heart

Is this real or just a dream?

Oh, rise up like the sun and

labor till the work is done.
