David Hess - Lullaby lyrics


ad
She hung me a melody, close to my heart
As she rested there, facing the sun
Then her arms reached behind me to pull in her dreams
And the two of us laid there as one

And who is the girl who stepped into my soul
Was she only a gleam in my eye?
And where is the light from a moment ago?
As it passed like the cloud in the sky

Star schooner, ship a word
Help me glide by on your light beam
Night flyer, ship a fool
Take what she gives you, it's her way

I'd stand under galaxies, looking for love
Recalling a thousand hellos
And the canyons would echo the sound of their name
And the time of his first to let go

Like a boat without rotor, no wind in the sails
Find the sailor who lives by the sand
And you'll meet with a drifter in seafarer's clothes
Or a gipsy who wanders the land

Star schooner, ship a word
Help me glide by on your light beam
Night flyer, ship a fool
Take what she gives you, it's her way

The white sandy beaches are calling me home
As I try to remember their names
Is it time and forgetfulness? How should I know!
But the moment is always the same

So, Katja or Sheila, whoever you are
In your memories trying to replay
How we laid there together in each other's arms
As the universe sprung out the day

Star schooner, ship a word
Help me glide by on your light beam
Night flyer, ship a fool
Take what she gives you, it's her way

It's her way [2x]
