serenade {by emiliana torrini}

new world forming
picturesque in its stance
midnight calling
moonlight shadows start to dance

for the dark finds ways of being
engraved in the light
and the heart bears indentations
of yesterdays hurting child
the now we will run with smiles
the morrow will heal the night so

morning comes
midnight make fast with the sun
i can hear my name be reborn
on the cloud within the sky beneath the dawn

oh, i
serenade the dawn
serenade the dawn
serenade the dawn

for the dark finds ways of being
engraved in the light
and the heart bears indentations
of yesterdays hurting child
the now we will run with smiles
the morrow will heal the night so

morning comes
midnight make fast with the sun
i can hear my name be reborn
on the cloud within the sky beneath the dawn

oh, i
serenade the dawn
serenade the dawn
serenade the dawn

da da da da dum dum
da dum dum
da da da da dum dum
da dum dum...
