Lullaby for an Anxious Child – Sting

This post is a response to Kristian’s word prompt for the day, lullaby.

Since he opened his blog with a song from the Carpenters, I thought he wouldn’t mind this song from Sting.

It is arranged very well and the lyrics are moving to me. I play it often when I need someone to sing me a lullaby.

Hush child

Let your mommy sleep in to the night until we rise

Hush child

Let me soothe the shining tears that gather in your eyes

Hush child

I won’t leave I’ll stay with you to cross this Bridge of Sighs

Hush child

I can’t help the look of accusation in your eyes

In your eyes

The world is broken now

All in sorrow

Wise men hang their heads

Hush child

Let your mommy sleep in to the night until we rise

Hush child

All the strength I’ll need to fight, I’ll find inside your eyes

In your eyes

Songwriters: Dominic Miller / Gordon Sumner
