Something to ponder...

My friend is doing some singing in my living room. Yes, I have friends that sing in my living room, don't you?

Well, the long and the short of it, is that she's practicing for a wedding and there is one song that she's singing over and over again. Needless to say, I've memorized it, just listening to it over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. (If you thought reading that was bad, imagine living it)

Anyway, the song is pretty in a sappy sort of way. "As I Lay Me Down To Sleep"



It felt like spring time on this February morning
In the courtyard birds were singing your praise
I'm still recalling things you said to make me feel
Alright I carried them with me today now


As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy


I wonder why
I feel so high though I am not above the sorrow
Heavy hearted 'till you call my name
And it sounds like church bells or the whistle of a train
On a summer evening I'll run to meet you barefoot
Barely breathing


As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy (oh darling)


As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy


It's not too near for me
Like a flower I need the rain
Though it's not clear to me
Every season has its change
And I will see you
When the sun comes out again


As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy (oh oh...)


As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy


I wonder why (hmmm)
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again (oooh)
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again (hmmm)
(comes out comes out oooh)
And I will wake up happy
So I pray


And, while I'm rather touched with the beauty of the song, I can't help but wonder... what is with this guy she's singing about? She'll see him, When the sun comes out again? What, does he hibernate? Or is he some damned bird that migrated south for the winter? If he hibernates, chances are he's not human. If he's a bird he's not human either. And aren't there laws about this sort of thing?
