Norah Jones – Rosie's Lullaby lyrics

Rosie's Lullaby

She walked by the ocean,

And waited for a star,

To carry her away.

Feelin' so small,

At the bottom of the world,

Lookin' up to God.

She tries to take deep breaths,

To smell the salty sea,

As it moves over her feet.

The water pulls so strong,

And no-one is around,

And the moon is looking down.


Rosie - come with me,

Close your eyes - and dream.

The big ships are rollin',

And lightin' up the night,

And she calls out, but they just pass her by.

The waves are crashin',

But not making a sound,

Just mouthing along.


Rosie - come with me,

Close your eyes and dream,

Close your eyes and dream,

Close your eyes and dream.
