    Primarily for foreign customers - (foreign shipping cost is considerably less without the jewel case. US shipping is the same as with jewel case). Included are the disk, booklet and traycard to fit a standard jewel case.

    (If you are in the US, you can order this if you don't want the jewel case, but you don't save on shipping in the US; it's not easy to take apart or put together a jewel case.)

    If you are a foreign customer and want the CD in a jewel case we suggest ordering "Weather Reports" from CDBaby.com; they charge less for foreign shipping with jewel case.

about

“The Sago WV Mine Disaster made national headlines when it was announced, incorrectly, that 12 miners trapped in a mine collapse were all rescued. The lyrics were taken from a letter one miner wrote to his loved ones as he lay dying.” -Emily

lyrics

MINER’S LETTER, © Emily Cantrell

Every day there’s a shade of a doubt
When we go down in the mines
We will never come out
And today is the day that our fears are realized
But if I could look one more time into your eyes
I would tell you my dear do not weep
For I am only going to sleep

Chorus:
Oh my darling I’m going to sleep
In a world far away from you
Cold and so deep
But tomorrow I’ll wake in a better place
And some day touch your hand
And see your smiling face
I’m not scared for my soul God will keep
For I am only going to sleep

There’s a dark scene of sadness above
Though it holds all I care for
The dear ones I love
So I’ll write you a letter of what it’s like down here
I am not suffering though my time is near
I think of you as precious moments creep
And now I’ll lay me down and go to sleep

Chorus:
Oh my darling I’m going to sleep
In a world far away from you
Cold and so deep
But tomorrow I’ll wake in a better place
And some day touch your hand
And see your smiling face
I’m not scared for my soul God will keep
For I am only going to sleep
I’m not scared for my soul God will keep
For I am only going to sleep
