He came with the breeze
She told everyone, in the cold
She would hold him and sing a song,
Sweet little Anna, singing her sad, sad song,
To her beautiful boy that giggled so sweet.

The days went by until one little night,
with this one little moon hanging in its black,
Sweet little Anna, whispered her goodnight song,
In the ear of the boy who giggled so sweet.

"My baby, my beauty, my boy, my baby,
What is your favourite song of all songs?
Sweet baby, my love, my darling, my baby,
Forever your rosie little lips won't turn blue.

I won't let nights hurt you,
I won't let them take you,
Take my hand and we'll run up that tree.

I won't let days hurt you,
I wont let them break you,
if so my little heart will die,
if so my tears will freeze and turn grey."

He just stared in her hardworking arms,
His rosie little lips had turned blue,
Sweet little Anna, chanted her goodnight song,
for her beautiful boy that giggled so sweet.

"My baby, my beauty........"

They took the boy who giggled so sweet,
Frozen grey tears glanced on her cheek,
And the goodnight song,
She never stopped singing,
Danced from her lips,
Down the dark grey street.

"My baby, my beauty........"

    General CommentI can't believe anyone has commented on this song, it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard

    I think that this song is about a woman's little baby that dies, the lyrics are pretty straight forward

    General CommentI never saw it like that, I thought it was a bout a girl who liked some kind of runaway boy who's killed in the end..
    I might have adapted it to my life, though

    Well she does say "i wont let them take/hurt/break you"

    General Commentit made me think of a soldier kinda.. the whole "i won't let them take you. i won't them hurt you" part.. like she's telling him 'you die, i die." before he's being deployed. but then again, my boyfriend/fiancee is a marine and most songs i hear make me think of a soldier. >_

    General CommentThat's the wonderful things about her songs, I think. That what they mean to you may change, depending on what your experiences are and where you are in your own life, and that they can mean so many different things to different people.

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who finds a boy stranded out in the cold, and can't help but care for him and want to make him better, and so she sings to him hoping that she can keep him warm, but in the end she can't.....and is faced with the bitter truth that what she feared came true.

    General CommentI agree with Binni (even though that comment is "only" 4 years old... It's about young girl who had a baby without being married ("came with a breeze" sounds a lot like a Romanian phrase, "child from flowers"). She's poor, the weather's harsh, and she tries to keep the baby warm and sings to him. She promises she'll never let him die (lips turning blue); but, alas, in the end the baby DOES die and is taken away from her. Result: girl goes a bit insane, walking alone on the street and singing her lullaby.

    Simple as that.

    It IS a pretty straightforward song though.
