Sleep is a tricky thing for me. Staying asleep is often as hard as falling asleep, which is too bad because I really love a good snooze. Waking early in the morning can be stressful, because I have to race against the clock to get back to sleep before my alarm goes off. But if I've got nowhere to be and no reason to get up, I often enjoy a sudden waking moment at sunrise. The colors are a warm blanket, and the prospect of returning to my slumber is a long, satisfying exhale. This little tune is kind of a lullaby to myself on those rare, wonderful sunrise mornings when I have the time to drift away again.
Over the next few days, I will ponder the profundity of writing 300 songs in 300 weeks. If you return next Monday, I will sing you a song about it.
I don't know where I am
The horizon at dawn
For an hour or two
'Cause I'm dreaming of you
