lyrics

If deep within the dark was distance
A-swimming with the emptiness of ears a-listening
A-humming with the hiss of tiny things existing
Aglow in oceanic nights through which we're drifting
Then you'd know it was all right
Babe you'd know it's all right

If deep within the night were numbers
A-counting down the seconds til you'd wake from slumber
The minutes till the Earth released you from its umbra
And all you ever had to do was wake and wonder
Then for sure it is all right
Child you know it's all right
No honey don't get uptight

I brought the light of language
Illuminating all the secrets strange and nameless
Exhuming all the stories buried in the ages
So we could have a map to lead us through the changes
And you'd know it was all right
Babe you'd know it's all right

If deep within the sky was silence
The ticking of a clock that's counting seconds timeless
The echo of a thought that's drifting mute and mindless
A-spinning through the darkness as if to remind us
That for sure it is all right
Babe you'd know it's all right
Now it's time to bid you good night

If deep within the dark was distance
A-swimming with the emptiness of ears a-listening
A-humming with the hiss of tiny things existing
Aglow in oceanic nights through which we're drifting
Then you'd know it was all right
