Lyric for Children's Lullaby

Little girl was down by the waterside
the sun so hot and the roses so red where she lie
as little boys sit and watch as she twists all around
sunny smiles not a raincloud could bring that girl down

What's behind those big brown eyes
do you dream at night
without your lullaby

Littly boy sits alone as he sings in the dark
wondering if his own dreams had pulled them apart
he sings a song of tomorrow he never can see
mostly sings of a lost little girl's memory
and now....

As his dreams go flashing by
he begins to hear
a lonely lullaby

Well now
we used to sing
and we used to cry
through everything
in our childrens lullaby

Little girl on the street with nobody around
has her head in the air dirty feet on the ground
she shuts her eyes and wonders if this is a mistake
now shes gone from the warmth of her little boy days
and still....

She believes that she'll get by
on her own without
her little boy's lullaby

Little boy prays to god to answer his song
to hold her hand when everyone else's are gone
times go by and the wounds slowly turn into scars
so he makes his final wish on the midnight stars
and he screams....

Little girl won't you hear my cry
won't you come back home
to you lover's lullaby

Littly girl down by the waterside
