Sonia Funk: Listen

Softly

(Sonia Funk)
Sonia Funk/Chris Shreenan-Dyck

Softly

 

You know I’ve searched every beat of my heart

Cried until my soul ran dry

Lost what I found and now I’m all alone

Inside the walls I built around me

 

The end the last good bye

Slipping through the hands of time

Things I believed, they fail me now

Did I ever feel, have I ever known, could this be real again

 

Color melts away the sun burns out

Shadows can’t escape this night

Strength fades and it leaves no trace

No safety here I’ve lost this fight

 

The end the last good bye

Slipping through the hands of time

Things I believed, they fail me now

Did I ever feel, have I ever known, could this be real again

 

Am I still sleeping in the dark

Or am I softly sleeping in your arms

Hmmm softly, softly, softly sleeping

 

So if I’m slipping past my pain at last

Then endings end where I begin

The waking dawn I have loved

Has found me here I’m not alone

 

In this life I’m searching for a way to find the things I know

So one day free all these things I will see

 and I will know and I will feel I will sleep in peace

 

Am I still sleeping in the dark

Or am I softly sleeping in your arms

Hmmm softly, softly, softly sleeping
