Be Still

This song is by Robyn Hitchcock and appears on the album Love From London (2013).

Hitchcock

I wonder what's she's thinking as she's sitting next to me
Although her eyes are open and she's staring at the sea
She's lost in contemplation as her hair hangs to the ground
I wonder, is she praying ? Is she making any sound?

Be still.

What is swimming through her mind as she sits alone?
As beautiful as islands and as quiet as the storm
I wonder where she's heading when she goes back into town
Who does she relate to when she puts her money down?

Be still, let the darkness fall upon you
Be still, be still, let the darkness fall upon you
Be still, be still, let the darkness fall upon you.

Her eyes are dark as berries and her skin is charcoal brown
She gazes to the future out to where the sun goes down
To where the night is falling on a lover or a friend
Somebody's beginning is just someone else's end.

Be still, let the darkness fall upon you
Be still, be still, let the darkness fall upon you
Be still, be still, let the darkness fall upon you.
