Josh Ritter

Wrap your arms around me
And hold me close to your light
I'm too weak for flying tonight
I've been running all nighttime
Trying to hide from the hounds
And morning is a long way down

I was always the strongest
So young and so fast
I was always sure that it would last
And now I'm stuck here at midnight
And there's cliffs all around
And morning is a long way down

I never ask the hard questions
I never try to transform
I was always just waiting to be born
But now the sun's tied with night-chains
Like Prometheus, bound
And morning is a long way down

So wrap your arms around me
And hold me close to your light
I'm too weak for flying tonight
But I don't care about nighttime
Or the light that is gone
If you'll just hold me 'til dawn
