The Bells Ring All Night

The bells ring all night, 
In my mother’s house

I wake up many times...
Transported to Gangotri of many years ago
Sleeping in his arms on that cold damp night
The bells of the white temple waking up ahead of us
The day before that enchanted trek to Gaumukh…

Ringing, ringing

It doesn't stop, I don’t learn
Even after a week of telling myself
This is just a wind chime
Just a clever wind chime
Swinging in the strong wind outside

The bells ring all night
In my mother’s house
I live in different worlds all night
In my mother's house
