l'il one
your eyes are sad
but big like suns
they show a capacity
for taking away
from reality

sing me a lullabye
of golden days and
nights gone bye
don't be afraid to try
to take away from
the tears that I cry

l'il one your hands
are small
the color of sand
they grasp at my hair
to keep me from
going down into the beast's lair

sing me a song
of all things right
and wrong
don't be scared to let
me know that
you also, a little bit, fret

l'il one
I know you're frightened
of the dark
but I promise
the sun will be your savior
just as it was mine
