Lyrics

“Wake up, what’s the matter?
What have you seen?”
“Nothing, my dear – Go back to sleep
It’s something from my wildest dreams

I was climbing up the white cliffs of Dover
I was staring into certain death
When oh -
I called your name with my last breath”

“Wake up, what’s the matter?
What have you done?”
“Nothing, my dear, nothing at all
I just thought my race was run

And it’s just – it’s just
That I’ve tried and failed to recall
When it was that the bullet struck
With nothing to break my fall

And I hear your sweet voice call
From far far away
Saying, ‘It’s all right – This will fade
In the cool clear light of day’”

Who among us has not shivered
When that ancient wind blows cold
And who among us has not felt
Every terror that the dark can hold

And cried out – cried out
In the middle of the night
“No, no, no, no
Turn on the light, turn on the light!”
