lyrics

Ain't nobody gonna tell me how that light rose, over the hill over the snow
over the water, oh
into the water I've fallen
into the hill I've flown
under the snow I've shaken
into the water I've fallen

And I wanna rock
my baby to sleep...
I wanna knock
my cheek on his cheek...
and that is the hardship
God meant for me


Bring me a penny oh faithful
throw me a rope divine
pull me ashore my angel mine
into the bottle I've fallen
into the bottle I've flown
into the river I'm taken
into the water I've fallen

and if I should fall too far awy
I had nothing to say, and if that light should crest the waves, I had someone someone someone to pray for me - I'm gonna knock my cheek on his cheek.

and I'm carrying on, I'm carrying on
and I'm singing my song, I'm singing my song
