You're Not Sleeping

All I can see daddy
Are twinkling stars
Remember no difference
Where ever you are

See that cluster of us in the sky
Make it till morning I will stay here tonight
My leg slipped down into the ground
I pulled it back out and sat with a sigh
Looked all around and saw by my side
A man with lightning bolts for eyes

He sang wa-la-lo

I’d often drive out of sight
He sang me songs in the morning light
Those rides
Oh the rides

Down in the dewdrops
The morning sun
Fell apart without the youngest one
Watch them change faster than the tides
Sweeping the sand back from where they’d come
You only can see them one by one
Wake up you're not sleeping anymore

He sang wa-la-lo

Drop me off
Pick me up
Kept me going
Kept me tough
Those rides
Oh the rides

He ran away fast he ran away loud
Yelling up at the big grey clouds
Why can’t they always stay that small?
She grew up tall and she grew up right
There in the yard before his sight
And she never knew that he was old.

He sang wa-la-lo
