Album: Not So Soft
Song: Rockabye

Rockabye

Tending the garden of noise
Where I grow the traffic
And the church bells
And the neighborhood boys
Singing to myself when the solitude sets in
In tune with the symphony
Of South Brooklyn
I sing

Rockabye, rockabye baby
Rockabye the baby that is me
Rockabye, rockabye baby
Rockabye till I'm fast asleep

The tunnel is train torn
The tracks are worn and sore
I can feel the rattle
Riding up through the floor
She jumped the turnstyle
He paid for his ride
I am the echo in the station
Where their footfalls collide
I left her at the epicenter
We were trembling dutifully
Then I left him too
I left parts of me
Singing

Rockabye, rockabye baby
Rockabye the baby that is me
Rockabye, rockabye baby
Rockabye till I'm fast asleep

I said, today I am leaving
In every sense of the word
But I'm in love with your memory already
Everything I've seen and heard
And I will go singing
When the solitude sets in
In time with the rhythm
Of everywhere I have been
It sounds like

Rockabye, rockabye baby
Rockabye the baby that is me
Rockabye, rockabye baby
Rockabye till I'm fast asleep
