The idea for this popped into my head after having a conversation about Stradivarius my cat who passed away this spring. Several years ago when we were living near a state park in Sleepy Hollow, a pack of coyotes moved into and started making a racket late at night. Strad got so upset by the sound that he would try to wake me and warn me of the danger by peeing on my head. I laugh about it now. Anyway, the story is funny, but the song is sincere, and I marked it as a favorite because I like the way it sounds, and because it reminds me of Strad in a very strange way that might only make sense in my head, but that's all that matters.
The moon is the cradle that rocks the sky
The insects the chorus in night's lullaby
The breeze is to ease your worry and fear
Coyotes are singing so sweet and clear
The grass is the pillow to lay your head
The clouds up above are your feather down bed
The owl caresses the velvet sky
She adds her voice to night's lullaby
The dark is the blanket that covers the nest
The stars watch over and help us rest
The rattlesnake wakes and she shakes with a sigh
Listen. Just listen to night's lullaby.
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
