Don’t Go Back to Sleep

Lyrics


Parts 1 and 2

Don’t, don’t go back to sleep



Part 3

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep
You must ask for what you really want
Don’t go back to sleep
The door is round and open
Where the two worlds meet
Step across the threshold
Don’t go back to sleep
Don’t go back to sleep
Don’t go back to sleep



none

Notes


Based on Rumi’s poem, The Breeze At Dawn, this song reminds us to keep our eyes open, ask for what we truly want and stay awakened! When leading this song in a large group, get the voices going on the background chant, Parts 1 and 2, and sing Part 3 over this as a descant. It also works well sung in a circle, echoing the image of a “round and open” door we step through as we go forth.

In this recording, the Part 1 starts on B, with the harmony up a minor third on D.
