Robin Holcomb – Rockabye lyrics

Put pen to the paper and sign
The lines on both sides of your hand
I can read
What settles out at the bottom
Of a bottle of wine
Are promises, lies
You can choose to believe
When rumours won't leave you alone
Your words cast a shadow
Try to fill in their form
Lay your hat on the table
O, I'll take your side
The mirror allows what the darkness divides
You'll never tell all that you know
In spite of the shelter
The storm will blow
Through the pastures of safety
May you plow the straight line
Walk slow, with a swing in
The river will rise

Pass under my window and wave
Sirens yell at each other
I don't hear your name
Spin hard in a circle
If you want to go down
Sing praises to the neighbour who
Is tending the ground

Rockabye
There'll be a blanket to cover you
When you go down
Rockabye
There'll be a blanket to cover you
When you go down

What you learn from the bottle is true
One is too many and two are too few
Line up the small glasses
O, tell me what you have heard
There's not a thing to laugh about
Tonight in this world
You made me call all over town
You're easy to lose
When you want to be found
I remember a room
Lit by one brilliant light
Throw the windows wide open
We'll sit in the dark tonight

Rockabye
There'll be a blanket to cover you
When you go down
Rockabye
There'll be a blanket to cover you
When you go down

Put pen to the paper and sign
The lines on both sides of your hand
I can read
What settles out at the bottom
Of a bottle of wine
Are promises, lies
You can choose to believe
