Liner Notes

This song was written as part of a totally independent challenge to write a poem or lyrics about a color using only 5 lines of 3-5 words each. My friend Molly (now she's my wife) wrote a beautiful and poignant poem that inspired the melody in this song the moment I read it, and once I put it to music and emailed it we began collaborating to make what I think is the best song I've ever written!

I hope you agree, but I'm certainly open to your feedback and constructive criticism!

Lyrics

Eyes glisten bright
Tears fall into sight
Arms cradle her baby tight
She is wrapped with fright
Where is the light?
Arms cradle her baby tight

Sleep well little babe
Your momma's here for you
Seek comfort now and
Close those baby blues

She is too young
Her head is hung
Arms cradle her baby tight
Her world is spun
The deal is done
Arms cradle her baby tight

Sleep well little babe
Your momma's here for you
Seek comfort now and
Close those baby blues

They smile gently
As they take her babe away
She has nothing left to say
Her gift to them's to walk away

[interlude / solo]

Sleep well little babe
Your momma's here for you
Seek comfort now and
Close those baby blues

Eyes glisten bright
Tears fall into sight
Arms cradle her baby tight
She is wrapped with fright
Where is the light?
Arms cradle her baby tight
