So where did you go?
Where do you go in the big sleep?
Going out in the deep sleep
Is where you're wandering now

So where did you go
When you are in the big sleep?
Drifting in wildlife
And still you're wandering now

We were on the top and the world was spinning
We were only young in the whirlpool of warning
Communication lost in the thundering rain style
Shelter from the storm in the early beginning

Going out in the big sleep, out in the big sleep
Could have been years, you know it could have been years
Or only seconds ago

Big sleep, where are you now?
Now that you're in big sleep
Valuable friend
They saw you leaving this way

We were on the top and the world was spinning
We were only young in the whirlpool of warning
Communication lost in the thundering rain style
Shelter from the storm in the early beginning

Where did you go?
Immaculate friend for a lifetime I'm grateful
It's only a second away

Big sleep, deep sleep
Big sleep, deep sleep

Forevermore
If only you could see me
If only you could see me
If only you could see me
Forever, forever, forever, forever
Forever, forever, forever, forever
