Lyrics and music by Katt McConnell

You’ve writ your story on the years,
Raised daughters and raised sons.
Now the shadows are lengthening,
The day is almost done.
They brought to me your final wish,
The family at your side,
And now as evening falls at last,
I am your honored guide.

Take my hand,
I know the way
To those waters cold and deep.
It isn’t far,
Don’t be afraid.
Just close your eyes and…
Sleep.

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned,
It’s that nothing really ends.
This chapter in your story’s done,
But still a new one now begins.
The scenery will change a bit,
But the road continues on,
So follow me into the night
And onward into the dawn.

Take my hand,
I know the way
To those waters cold and deep.
It isn’t far,
Don’t be afraid.
Just close your eyes and…
Sleep.

I’ll see you safely to the shore,
But then I have to go.
Don’t ask what’s on the other side,
For it’s not for me to know.
Just know that what you’ve left behind
Is a credit to your tale,
And I only hope to do half as well
Before I too must set sail.

Take my hand,
I know the way
To those waters cold and deep.
It isn’t far,
Don’t be afraid.
Just close your eyes and…
Sleep.
