about

This was a song that came out of me looking for a melody to help put my daughter to sleep. So it only seemed fair that it should be released on her 2nd birthday.

And here's a short trailer I made for the song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MwHHwWHadI

lyrics

Lullaby

Oh come you blessed child
You know it's been a while
In every hour today there's no more that you could've done
In the evening light
Though you try to fight
There's nowhere to run
And so without delay
It's time to make our way
So climb into my arms where you can feel safe and be warm
And I will sing a line
To give you piece of mind
To see you till dawn

So lay your head down soon
Don't let your fears guide you
For every day's brand new when you're young
So go to sleep, good night
And let your dreams take flight
I will be at your side till the end

Oh in the dead of night
When you don't feel so right
I hold you near to me and tell you that everything's fine
I am with you now
You must believe somehow
I'd never leave you behind
If something makes you cry
I'll sing that lullaby
The one that soothes your heart much more than any other song
Whenever dreams are bad
Whatever needs you have
I know it won't be too long

So lay your head down soon
Don't let your fears guide you
For every day's brand new when you're young
So go to sleep, good night
And let your dreams take flight
I will be at your side till the end tonight

So lay your head down soon
Don't let your fears guide you
For every day's brand new when you're young
So go to sleep, good night
And let your dreams take flight
I will be at your side till the end tonight

So go to sleep, good night
And let your dreams take flight
I will be at your side till the end of time
