LULLABYE

Verse 1

In the dark, in the dark

In the deep dark of the wood

Where the midwinter fog 

Covered everything it could

There’s a presence felt

No one ever understood

In the dark, in the dark

In the deep dark of the wood

 

Verse 2

There’s a sound, there’s a sound

There’s a strange unearthly sound

That the superstitious townsfolk

Would never go around

‘Twas a melancholy warbler 

Whose song could not be found

That's the sound, that's the sound

That's the strange unearthly sound

 

Chorus

Tell me it’s okay

Shadows block my way

Hold me close tonight

Whisper, “It’s alright”

 

Verse 3

Lullay, lullay

Here's a light to guide your way

Through the night, burning bright

’Til the dawning of the day

Hushabye and goodnight

Think on everything that's good

There is nothing to fear in the deep dark of the wood
