Dreamsong Lullaby

September 16, 2014 § Leave a comment

I did driving duty the other night, driving home from Worthing to Manchester. The best way to keep myself awake (it’s a 5 hour drive and we set off at 9.30pm!)  was to sing. And as everyone else was snoring I was able to sing unhindered! Such a joy. This is the result of that drive home. It has a melody but no music as I have no instruments here and all my recording equipment is in storage – anyone fancy helping a girl out here?!

Dreamsong Lullaby

As the sun sets over rooftops and houses
The sky turns to gold and the air feels a chill
Slowly your eyelids are closing so drowsily
Caught by the promise of dreams, become still

So sail away, sail away, floating on featherdown,
Carried by starlight and wil’o’th’wisp,
Follow its melody, haunting and lonely
For the dreamsong will fade with the pale morning mist.

As the moon rises with silvering halo
In skies cobalt blue, behind frostbitten clouds
Gently so gently you fall into slumberland
Tumbling down to the dreamland below

As the night breeze ruffles treetops so lazily
And the moon catches the foam on the sea
Caught by the winds of the dreamtime you sail away
Safe in the love of your daddy and me
