And all of my time was wasted
In filling a void between now and then
I felt fatigue and complacence
So sing me something sweet
Lull me back to sleep
Because the place I thought I was no longer is…

Please just slow down
Let me catch my breath
I swear I never meant to move this slow
I’m standing around and around
Never meant to fall
Never meant to fall behind

All these woeful wanderings
Just hanging from a string
Tethered to my foot and leading
Just snares underfoot
Nets under my steps
All these mindless musings
Are moving me along
Keep me chasing my tail
Around and around
This merry-go-round
A heavy weight
Fell over me
A calming comfort in the tones
All the blankets of this world
Can’t keep me warm

Please just slow down
Let me catch my breath
I swear I never meant to move this slow
I’m standing around and around
Never meant to fall
Never meant to fall behind

Sing me something sweet
Lull me back to sleep
I’m just a child cradled in my mothers arms

Sing me something sweet
Lull me back to sleep
I can’t slow down this carousel
We spin around in circles
Say something soft
Say something sweet
It’s a blur before my eyes
My world is whirled around me
Drifting in and out
Lull me back to sleep…

Please just slow down
Let me catch my breath
I swear I never meant to move this slow
I’m standing around and around
Never meant to fall
Never meant to fall behind

I’m just a child screaming in my mother’s arms
Sing me something soft
Sing me something sweet
I’m just a child screaming in my mother’s arms
Just sing me something!
