Night Light/Row the Tide

Night light,
burning in the quiet.
Night light,
stirring in the silence.
My light,
you might be an answer to the shade,
guiding with your rays from far away.

Night light,
flicker as the wind goes by.
Night light,
dimmer by the passing time.
My light,
your luminous shine reminds our hearts,
that there can be light even in dark.

Night light,
glowing to the very last.
Night light,
slowing, you turn to ash.
My light,
I will never forget what you've done,
a million lights now brighter then the sun, 
-then the sun,
are spreading out their light to everyone.


Row, row, row with the tide,
over and under, side to side,
sway with the waves and hang on tight,
oh, all in the blue of your eyes.

Row, row, row with the tide,
rush in, rush out, recede, rise,
land in the sand, my my, what a ride,
oh, all in the blue of your eyes.

Row, Row, Row with the tide,
sink or swim everyone must decide,
fish in the sea must flee for their lives,
oh, all in the blue of your eyes.

Row, Row, Row with the tide,
would you befriend me, would you be mine?
We could see our journey unwind,
We could live happily for all time,
oh, everything I need I can find,
-right in the blue of your eyes.
