So much farther off than time could reach
    Today it would be too late
    So much despair he has bled
    But will he wither away
    No one knows that you must keep
    This Old Man wide awake
    ’cause no one knows that he could feed
    Our lives with a brighter flame

    [Chorus 1:]
    Hush little dreamer, the bearer of light
    Has come to set you free
    Now little dreamer at last you can sigh
    ’cause the nightmares will be released

    [Chorus 2:]
    Sweeter far than life from I found that love was
    Sweeter far than love to die as he did
    [J. L. Runeberg]

    [Repeat chorus 1]

    The stars fell from the nightsky
    As he reached his hands in the air
    As the sun peeked between the trees
    The Old Man burst to tears

    [Repeat chorus 2]
