Luna’s Lullaby

Text by Jessica Stone:

 

Dreams, sweet dreams


Soft, sensual strumming


The night fiddles humming,

Beautiful Luna she shines and gleams

Dream, dream, dream, dream.


Close your eyes and dream.

 

Silent farewell 


The stars swell 


Beauty so bright they shall shine through the night

Dawn to the dusk whispers so light 


Good night.

The sky, sapphire blue,


A crepuscular bliss, a twilight hue,


My moon, with beauty true,


Your brilliance will glisten the whole night through.

 

Dreams, sweet dreams,


This wistful world is not as it seems,

Yet Luna, she knows,


Silent and smiling she patiently glows.

Yet the dawn is arriving


The sun is arising


The day is reviving 
and ah!

 

Oh Sweet Dreams, please take me back there

Sleeping on soft clouds, please take me back there

Oh Sweet Dreams, please take me back there

Oh, won’t you take me back there?

Oh, won’t you take me back there?

Won’t you take me back there?

Please take me back there?
