Lonely Lover's Lullaby


Lyrics

"Lonely Lover's Lullaby"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Sleep tight, my darling

Sleep in ‘till noon

Even though we’re apart tonight

You know we’ll be together soon


So while we’re on the phone

You don’t have to feel so alone

Just listen to me and baby don’t you cry

I’ll sing you to sleep with a lonely lover’s lullaby


You might be without me tonight

But everything will be alright

Our future’s gonna be so bright

‘Till then just hold on tight


So while we’re on the phone

You don’t have to feel so alone

Just listen to me and baby don’t you cry

I’ll sing you to sleep with a lonely lover’s lullaby


So while we’re on the phone

You don’t have to feel so alone

Just listen to me and baby don’t you cry

I’ll sing you to sleep with a lonely lover’s lullaby


I’ll sing you to sleep with a lonely lover’s lullaby

Brief Description

Since I haven't been fortunate to have the experience of having children of my own to sing a lullaby to, I guess this is from the perspective of a guy who is singing his wife to sleep.  This took shape after starting with the title, the motivation for which was simply to have a song with the word 'lullaby' in it.  At the time I think what I had in mind was to do the same for all the other similar words like rag, dirge, reel, etc., just as a songwriting practice exercise.  Lenore played a sweet flute on this one.  I included it because it fit the album theme, particularly when you consider the fact that it's great sleeping on a boat because the rocking literally lulls you to sleep.
