Liner Notes: 

Great prompt and all these images came to mind.


I Sigh and Fall to Sleep
© 2021 Cindy Prince

Evening's come once again
The stars are now glistening
You are reading to me
And I am happy listening

I can't keep from yawning
It's the sound of your voice
I'd listen for many hours
If I had a choice

You read me about adventures
About mysteries that haven't been solved
I try to keep my eyes open
To see what is resolved
Your deep voice becomes a whisper
You tell me of promises to keep
Although I try to stay awake
I sigh and fall to sleep

It's every night's ritual
You reading in my room
And all the problems fall away
As you tell me about ancient tombs

I treasure every story
Far away places and pirate ships
My eyes again get heavy
And I take a dream filled trip

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This took me back. For me, it was my mother reading to me when I was little.
I...had forgotten those memories. This made me emote.
Beautiful lyrics.
