lyrics

I had an awful dream last night:
Lit up by a dying light
the sea sent up a tall, black wave
just to drag the world away.
But from the water flew a crow,
he said, "Son, you had better know,
"these dreams are gonna lead you wrong,
"so just listen to my song." and he sang...

"Lord, I don't know why the sun shines,
but at least I see the light,
and I don't know what I'll do when the shadows pull me through
but 'till then, I'll be alright."

Then he led my by a barren hill,
where the sound made my blood stand still:
a woman wrapped up in her woe,
just screaming down the road.
She said, "Why do I even try
when all that I love must die?
Each season bites me like a cur."
So my crow, he sang to her (and I sang, too!)

"Lord, I don't know why the sun shines
but at least I see the light
and I don't know what I'll do when the shadows pull me through
but 'till then, I'll be alright."

So when the morning struck my eyes,
I let no one I saw pass by
without a smile and a song,
I could sing it all day long:

"Lord, I don't know why the sun shines,
but at least I see the light.
And I don't know what I'll be when the shadows come for me,
but 'till then I'll be alright."
