Sung to Sleep

Sitting in my room alone,
So dark and cold,
So far away from the world,
I cry.

Rain taps the window,
Tap-tap-tapping.
The grey sky reflects in my sad eyes.
No rain falls outside;
The rain is only within
These eyes.

Hum a lullaby and cry.

I hold your picture in my heart
And look upon you...
Some nights.
Somewhere you lie,
Smiling or crying?
Thinking of me?
Crystal tears float to your picture,
And I realize...

Hum a lullaby and lie.

Sitting in my room alone,
So dark and still,
So close to everything,
I'm so far.

Hum a lullaby and fly.
