Do you remember when I was a baby
Did I cry, did I cry
I only remember the days I was laughing
When you sang me sweet lullabies
When you sand me sweet bye and bye

Sometimes I wonder if you were an angel
Would you fly, would you fly
Or would you just hover right here by my side
Keeping me warm and dry
Keeping me safe by you side

Mother mother won't fall from grace
Light a room with the lines on your face
And if you were a river run dry
Well I'd sing you sweet bye and bye

All of the birds that land on my window
Sing your name, sing your name
When all of the time I am crying again
About how much the sky likes to rain
When I should be singing your name

And all of the flowers by the side of the road
They whisper your name while they grow
And if you were a river run dry
Well I'd sing you sweet bye and bye
