Little One Lyrics

by Beck

Go to sleep
We're so tired now
Altogether in a snake pit of souls

New days
Throw your chains away
Try to hang your hopes on the wind

Little one
Just a little way
Today all we need is waiting

Night rise
Like the evening prize
In a turnstile backwards we fly

Cold bones
Tied together by
Black ropes we pulled from a swing

Little one
Just a little way
Today all of the dreams are waking

Can't stand on crooked legs
I'm cross-eyed to the wall
Will these harbor lights
Satellites

Drown, drown
Sailors run aground
In a sea change nothing is safe

Strange waves
Push us every way
In a stolen boat we'll float away

Little one
Just a little way
Today all we need is waiting

Little one
Just a little way
Today all of the dreams are waking

Little one
Hold on
Hold on, all of the dreams are waking
