Day 19

These are the lyrics for a song I wrote for some friends who went overseas to adopt a little girl. I never recorded it and in fact have forgotten the melody, but I hope I have it recorded somewhere, because I’d like to resurrect the song.

Hey we’re coming soon love to bring you home
on tall ships and on small planes
from land to land they make their way
they don’t rest night or day

oh the land sweeps wide and the city’s full of lights
there’s noise out on the corner but it’s quiet here tonight
sleep now weary baby when you wake you’ll be at home
soon you won’t be having to sail anymore alone

see our silver ship shines in the sun
like a knife cut through the skies
got your mom and dad on either side
the world looks new, seen through your eyes

on the land sweeps wide and the city’s full of lights
there’s noise out on the corner but it’s quiet here tonight
hey there pretty sailor you make us a family
i’ve sailed in enough ships the rest can sail on without me

your eyes shine brighter than the stars
ill shine on you if you shine on me
will you grow up next to me my love
grow up strong grow up free

oh the land sweeps wide and the city’s full of lights
there’s noise out on the corner but it’s quiet here tonight
sleep now weary baby when you wake you’ll be at home
soon you won’t be having to sail anymore alone
