HOWARD SHORE WITH ANNIE LENOX SOUND-INTO THE WEST LYRICS

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
