Liner Notes: 

Prompt: don’t rock my world
The inspiration for the prompt was the recent earthquakes

Writing this almost made me fall asleep in a peaceful kind of way - given the inspiration for the prompt I wanted something quiet and comforting and peaceful

It was a lullaby as I sang it but am open to other ideas and collaborations.

Lyrics: 

V1
imagine a field
where green grass grows
and lavender wild flowers bloom

imaging a lake
that’s cool and clear
with the lone cry of a loon

imagine a sky
where bright starts shine
next to a brand new moon

imagine a love
that is greater than us
to which no one is immune

PC
imagine all this as I pull you in
and our love fills the room

C
don’t rock my world tonight
hold me close and quiet
don’t rock my world tonight
lie with me in silence
don’t rock my world tonight
let dreams of peace guide us
don’t rock my world
oh don’t rock my world
no don’t rock my world tonight
let me dream
let me dream

V
imagine a time
where there’s no war
and all children live free

imagine a place
that welcomes all
for the rest of eternity

imagine a world
where people thrive
and can be all they can be

imagine a love
that expands and grows
to reach beyond you and me

PC
imagine all this as I cradle you
and we drift off to sleep

C
don’t rock my world tonight
hold me close and quiet
don’t rock my world tonight
lie with me in silence
don’t rock my world tonight
let dreams of peace guide us
don’t rock my world
oh don’t rock my world
no don’t rock my world tonight
let me dream
let me dream

Sweet lyric and total lullaby with a wonderful message.

So beautifully rhythmic and indeed calming. A comforting vision both of nature and a more peaceful world of humans, a beautiful invitation, a lullaby incantation. You did an amazing job with the prompt!

I didn't read the liner notes and the lullaby came through very clearly. I enjoyed the reversal of the "rock my world" idea into this plea for hope and peace.

Yes, I can hear it as a lullaby. Soothing and sweet, yet it has clear and vibrant elements (the rhythm of the writing softens them beautifully).

Oh wow - 'imagine a love that is greater than us to which no one is immune' - what a STAND OUT line. Love it. Your lyrics flow like water grrrl... Deffo getting the lullaby vibe through your style of writing. Imagine the prosody with the right music!
