    Lyrics

    In the middle of the night(middle of the night)
    I go walking in my sleep(i go walking in my sleep)
    From the mountains of faith(moutains of faith)
    To the river so deep(river so deep)
    I must be looking for something(looking for something)
    Something sacred I lost(sacred i lo-o-ost)
    But the river is wide(river is wide)
    And it's too hard to cross(too hard to cross)

    Even though I know the river is wide
    I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore
    I try to cross to the opposite side
    So I can finally find out what I've been looking for

    In the middle of the night(middle of the night)
    I go walking in my sleep(i go walking in my sleep)
    Through the valley of fear(valley of fear)
    To a river so deep(river so deep)
    I've been searching for something(searching for something)
    Taken out of my soul(taken out of my so-o-oul)
    Something I'd never lose(never lose)
    Something somebody stole(something somebody stole)

    I don't know why I go walking at night
    But now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore
    I hope it doesn't take the rest of my life
    Until I find what it is that I've been looking for

    In the middle of the night(middle of the night)
    I go walking in my sleep(I go walking in my sleep)
    Through the jungle of doubt(jungle of doubt)
    To the river so deep(river so deep)
    I know I'm searching for something(searching for something)
    Something so undefined(so undefined)
    That it can only be seen(only be seen)
    By the eyes of the blind
    In the middle of the night

    I'm not sure about a life after this
    God knows I've never been a spiritual man
    Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river
    That is running to the promise land

    In the middle of the night(middle of the night)
    I go walking in my sleep(i go walking in my sleep)
    Through the desert of truth(desert of truth)
    To the river so deep(river so deep)
    We all end in the ocean(end in the ocean)
    We all start in the streams(start in the streams)
    We're all carried along(carried along)
    By the river of dreams(river of dreams)
    In the middle of the night

    (repeat: I go walking in the middle of the...)

      when i was really young this was my favorite song. for some reason i thought it was about a man who dropped his wedding ring in a river and was trying to find it.
