Bek Lyrics

Little One

(From the Sea Change Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

Go to sleep
We're so tired now
All together in a snake pit of souls
New days
To throw your chains away
To Try to hang your hopes on the wind

Little one
Just a little way
Today all we need is waiting

Night rise
Like the evening prize
In a turnstile
Backwards we fly
Cold bones
Tied together by
Black ropes we pulled from a swing

Little one
Just a little way
Today all of the dreams are waking

Can't stand on crooked legs
I'm cross-eyed to the wall
In these harbor lights
Satellites explode

Drown drown
Sailors run aground
In a sea change nothing is safe
Strange waves
push us every way
In a stolen boat we'll float away

Little one, hold on
All of the dreams are wasting
