Yesterday, I woke up with your head on my arm
My hand was numb, circulation gone
But I dared not move the pretty sleeping one
The sun had painted patterns on your face

As you breathed Sunday air
You rode onto my open arm
I became your pillow
You let me smooth your hair

I will sing you morning lullabies
You are beautiful and peaceful this way
I know you have to close your eyes on everyone
Let me help you, I'll sing you to sleep with morning lullabies

Let me lie in the curl of your body tonight
And I will hear you tumble into sleep
I will watch you heal
I will watch you heal with me

I will sing you morning lullabies
You are beautiful and peaceful this way
I know you have to close your eyes on everyone
Let me help you, I'll sing you to sleep with morning lullabies

I know you have to close your eyes on everyone
Let me help you, I'll sing you to sleep with morning lullabies
Bye bye baby, close your eyes
And I will sing you morning lullabies

And I will sing you morning lullabies

    General CommentThis song is simply beautiful.

    For me, it not only shows love in a romantic sense. It could also be a song about, for example, the love of a mother for her child. I think it basically shows a person protecting/watching over their loved one, whether that loved one is a child, a lover or a friend.

    I just love this song. It reminds me of my mother. :)

    Song MeaningThis song reminds me of my daughter. She passed away in June, in my arms. I even sang to her. I heard this song after and it was so fitting.
