Leonard Cohen – Lullaby lyrics



Lullaby

Sleep baby sleep
The day’s on the run
The wind in the trees
Is talking in tonguesIf your heart is torn
I don’t wonder why
If the night is long
Here’s my lullaby
Here’s my lullaby

Well the mouse ate the crumb
Then the cat ate the crust
Now they’ve fallen in love
They’re talking in tongues

If your heart is torn
I don’t wonder why
If the night is long
Here’s my lullaby
Here’s my lullaby

Sleep baby sleep
There’s a morning to come
The wind in the trees
They’re talking in tongues

If your heart is torn
I don’t wonder why
If the night is long
Here’s my lullaby
Here’s my lullaby

    • Superb! To be able to write a lullaby: The most written subject, and to do it with such poise! What a talent, and he is our contemporary! Thanks for the note!
