Lyrics

This is not a lullaby; you won’t be soothed to sleep
Your sobs a gentle melody, but I will let you weep
Your perfect rhythm all inside is all the time we’ll keep
And I won’t sing, I’ll only breathe your song into me deep.


And who knows all you’re hearing? I can’t guess…
The harmony too beautiful, god, your distress
If I could stop the stream of sounds that come out wrong
You could fill the air with your pure song.


But this is not a lullaby; you won’t be soothed to sleep
You won’t be fooled, you won’t be told, the mystery’s too deep
Your every cry is music now, if I have ears to hear
I’ll listen to your breath’s song
Only sleep a little, dear.
