As I Lay Me Down - Sophie B Hawkins
Bb Dm Eb                  F            Gm       Eb
       It felt like springtime on this February morning
       Bb                   F            Bb      (Dm Eb)
In the courtyard birds were singing your praise
I'm still recalling things you said to make me feel alright
I carried them with me today, Now

Bb   F      Eb      F
As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
     F                Eb    F
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name into the sky
And I will wake up happy

I wonder why I feel so high Though I am not above the sorrow
Heavy hearted Till you call my name
And it sounds like church bells Or the whistle of a train
On a summer evening I'll run to meet you
Barefoot barely breathing

Bb             C#           Ab
  It's not too near for me
       F#                C#    
Like a flower I need the rain
                E        B   
Though it's not clear to me
      A              B      
Every season has its change
And I will see you
When the sun comes out again
