Christopher’s Lullaby


Your eyes are like oceans
So wide and so deep
They’ve been through the calm
And the storm
They’re ready for sleep

Oh baby sweet baby
Hush and hide your eyes
Seek all your treasures
Be surprised what you find

Your boat is floating
Your sails all tucked in
You’re near the shore
Near the port
Soon you’ll be dreamin’

Oh baby sweet baby
Hush and hide your eyes
Seek all your treasures
Be surprised what you find

Your eyes don’t pretend
Their blue’s nearly gone
They’ve endured enough
For one day
They’ll be docked until dawn

Oh baby sweet baby
Hush and hide your eyes
Seek all your treasures
Be surprised what you find

Your journey has ended
You’re tired and beat
You’re in my arms
In my heart
Your day is complete

Oh baby sweet baby
Hush and hide your eyes
Never be alone in this world
Please always be mine
