lyrics

drop the pail in the well
turn the handle see the water rise
feel the moon cast its spell
dive in and leave the world behind

close your eyes
there’s a window inside
breath deep and it opens up wide
as night falls outside
it’s your own private ride
the moon and your heart side by side

drop the pail in the well
turn the handle the waters rise
the eagle sleeps in her shell
until the day she breaks free and flies

the nursemaid is sweeping
the candlelight seeping
neath your door while you’re sleeping
in bed

a river is streaming
while the stars shimmer gleaming
on a world that you dream
in your head

close your eyes
there’s a window inside
breath deep and it opens up wide
as dusk moves to dawn
you float on a song
as the tide pulls you on
you belong
you belong

drop the pail in the well
crank the handle and the waters rise
dim the lights ring the bell
a warm vibration behind your eyes

drop the pail in the well
drop the pail in the well
dim the lights ring the bell
drop the pail in the well
