Livingston Taylor – Hush A Bye lyrics

Nail and stone it was my life
And dreams were always grown.
I'd build lovers into wives
And dreams into fine homes.
As simple as it seemed to me,
You would not see me smiling,
And I would cry to watch you try
To live your life to die.

So hush a bye
Don't you cry
Go to sleep my love;
Dry your eyes
And dream of
You're the one I love.
I did pray to be like you
To be part of your life,
But you were lost to richer lands
Your friends to foot the price.
And somewhere I just saw clearly
What you were thinking of
The diff'rence 'tween us must have been
That someone gave me love.

(repeat chorus)
