Little boy close your eyes, you don’t have to fret
It will all work out when the morning star sets
Big brother why you worry? What you worry about?
Don’t you know there’s nothing that can tear us apart

It’s okay, it’s alright all you hear is the sighing of the tides
Leopard tongue speaks it’s alright
Its okay, it’s alright the grandiose is only a trembling ghost
Leopard tongue speaks it’s alright
Close your eyes

Boss man, head honcho lifts the weight of the world
He’s been sweating bullets waiting for his life to unfurl
Sweet little girl there’s no need, there’s no need to cry
Troubles will pass you as quickly as the night

Even when the storms are raging on
I know you cannot see the light but baby hold on
Just a little while longer now
It will all work out in the end


from Peaks and Valleys, released June 10, 2014
