Limelight Lullaby

I’m singing a song, my limelight lullaby

This is the only song I know

I refuse to look further than the sky

And I rest my feet as I go

 

This is a song, my limelight lullaby

Its sweet caress tickles your chin

In the distance I see your eye

And sing the song while tucking you in

 

Oh come and sing with me

This little melody

I cannot explain why

But this is the day

For a sweet hug and kiss

You are always free to miss

But when my song begins to fade

You’ll wake up in the nighttime shade

 

This is my song, my limelight lullaby

In my heart I know you’re asleep

But in your head you wonder why

The river of Styx is so deep

 

Come and sing my lullaby

Salty tears gets in my eye

When I watch you for a while

I know I’ll miss you when you die

Little song, keep going on

You’re holding on so strong

Just like you, my infant sweet

Death I am

Now that we meet.
