Untitled Lullaby

Birds sing, at sunrise
It's beautiful, open your eyes
Come with me to see the morning
Cold hands, heartbeats
It's a miracle, move your feet
Don't spend another second dreaming

The blood orange crests the hill
Warm your hands, you can't stay still
So run and run and run
Now the birds sing your song
You could listen all day long
But there are things to be done

In the coolness before the dawn
When your nightmares are finally gone
Open your eyes to see the morning
In the warmth of the new rays
When it's time to begin the day
Open your eyes to see the morning

Rest easy, night is near
Stars crowd the atmosphere
Come with me to see the evening
Draw the covers, snuff the light
There are no monsters here tonight
Let the pillow slow your breathing

The moon arises from the hill
Snuggle in to ward the chill
Just sleep and sleep and sleep

Birds sing their evensong
You could listen all night long

But now it's time to dream

In the coolness of the night
Send the shadows into flight
Close your eyes until the morning
In the warmth of your feather bed
Child, it's time to rest your head
Close your eyes until the morning
