song by Robyn Hitchcock
Be Still lyrics

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.
