Love Your Lullaby

February 17, 2021


(Verse 1)
Can you hear me?
Lately, these shows don't endear me
anymore
the ninety-ninth laugh track feels more
like a chore

to me, washed up shipwrecked on Kafka's shore
where our static dream plays over vinyl

tenfold
The pages you've ripped from your songbook
crescendoes
the chords that I've strummed now are just a
Memento

My Pisces night sky
Your moonlight, I shy

(Chorus)
Away from these lies that you veil on our lyrics
Hands on your ears so I know you can't hear it
Please take me back to those sanguine times
My heart could dream safely in your lullaby

Lullaby

(Verse 2)
Please tell me when I when awake from this slumber
Orion may chase away lighting and thunder
that
shrills in the distant midnight burned onto our CD's

Labeled "Jack hit the road" by then we were much smarter
"Jack broke his crown" to know life would be harder
By
the end of the spinning, just strangers with memories

My Pisces night sky
Your moonlight, I shy

(Chorus)
Away from these lies that you veil on our lyrics
Hands on your ears so I know you can't hear it
Please take me back to those sanguine times
My heart could dream safely in your lullaby

Lullaby
I cry

(Bridge)
Eyes wild as we flew past arcade lights, pool fog,
one another
slowed down into age trapped under the covers
We never got caught.
I wonder why we ever stopped. 

Never those kids again.

Never those kids again.

(Outro)
As I close my eyes
on this bildungsroman
This dream I revisit
Calypso's hymn
To a time when I didn't shy away
from sleep
In my Pisces night sky

Your moonlight

Your lullaby

    Gorgeous. I've seen a lot of great songs, but this one is one of my favs and definitely one I've got my money on to win. Best of luck and great work!
