Lyrics


1a. Your rain falls like crazy fingers, peals of fragile thunder keeping time
Recall the days that still are to come some sing blue
1b. Hang your heart on laughing willow
Stray Down to the water, deep sea of love
Beneath the sweet calm face of the sea swift undertow
2c. Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know, see how it feels in the end
May Lady Lullaby sing plainly for you soft, strong, sweet and true


2a. Cloud hands reaching from a rainbow tapping at the window, touch your hair
So swift and bright strange figures of light float in air
2b. Who can stop what must arrive now? Something new is waiting to be born
Dark as the night you're still by my side shine inside
2c. Gone are the days we stopped to decide where we should go, we just ride
Gone are the broken eyes we saw through in dreams gone
Both dream and lie


3c. Life may be sweeter for this, I don't know, feels like it might be all right
While Lady Lullaby sings plainly through you, love still rings true
3a. Midnight on a carrocel ride, reaching for the gold ring down inside
Never could reach it, just slips away but I try
