Lullaby

Come lay your head, on pillows soft at night.
Come drift away in dreams, as souls entwine,
And feel my arms around you, holding tight—
I’ll never let you go — Forever mine.

Come drift away in dreams, as souls entwine.
Come lay your body soft, come lay with me,
I’ll never let you go; forever mine
With ev’ry living breath — Come let it be!

Come lay your body soft, come lay with me,
My tender kiss, my lips upon your skin,
With ev’ry living breath — Come let it be
A sign, so sealing love’s desire to win.

My tender kiss, my lips upon your skin.
Oh how the taste of paradise appeals—
A sign so sealing, love’s desire to win
An aching heart, to soothe the pain it feels.

Oh how the taste of paradise appeals
To ev’ry thought, emotions blind with bliss—
An aching heart, to soothe the pain it feels,
You numb my senses with a loving kiss.

To ev’ry thought, emotions blind with bliss,
Once held inside, no longer find their place.
You numb my senses with a loving kiss—
And drown me in the depths of your embrace.

Once held inside, no longer find their place,
These worries or concerns you wash way
And drown me in the depths of your embrace,
As love concedes to let we lovers play.

These worries or concerns you wash way,
And feel my arms around you, holding tight,
As love concedes to let we lovers play—
Come lay your head — On pillows soft at night.
