Air - Somewhere Between Waking And Sleeping Lyrics




Without blindness, there is no sight
You'd see further if you'd only close your eyes
In unconsciousness I can find peace
Inside prison walls I can find release
There is a place that I have seen

Somewhere between waking and sleeping
Down at the water's edge
Somebody waits for me
Is it too late for me
It's never too late, he says

[Left Channel]
Without blindness, there is no sight
You'd see further if you'd close your eyes
Unblock the failure

[Right Channel]
Without blindness, there is failure
People gather by the river
They were talking

There is a place that I have seen
Somewhere between waking and sleeping
Leaning over the side
Trailing my fingertips
Feeling the water slip
Into the quiet night

Viewed from the wrong end of a telescope
I see myself, so far below
Still and silent, rest in peace
The thread unravels
Merciful release

There is a place that I have seen
Somewhere between waking and sleeping
Now I can almost see
Figures upon the shore
He's gathering in the oars
Where are you taking me

    The title and lyrics perfectly match the music - this totally feels like something that would come on when I'm between awake and sleep.

    Only three comments posted last July? What is wrong w the world? On the other hand it’s like I stumbled alone into a dark beautiful mysterious place.

    You're never alone.

  8. Anthi P.

    Somewhere between waking and sleeping
    Down at the water's edge
    Somebody waits for me
    Is it too late for me
    It's never too late, he says

  9. Gustavo Iturbe

    One of the greatest AIR songs ever. My favorite in this album fur sure.
