about

I wrote this when I was 14 years old, so really this is the 10th Anniversary Edition!

lyrics

When you're not tired
But are tucked up in bed,
When you want to dance
But have to go to sleep instead,
When you need help drifting off
Please just close your eyes
And I'll sing to you the sweetest
Of the Liverpool Lullabies.

When counting sheep stops working
And they seem to fade away
And weariness doesn't ward off
The excitement of the day,
When you're restless and the peace you crave
Still you cannot find
I will sing to you the sweetest
Of the Liverpool Lullabies.

The ship's moored on the Mersey
In the cold wind rock
And the sounds of men and horses
Clatter on the cobbled docks
And in the little house
Where you and I reside
I will sing to you the sweetest
Of the Liverpool Lullabies.

So think of all the big ships
With sails that catch the wind
And the free birds in the autumn
Flying south and home again
So think of the clearest
And the starriest of skies
While I sing to you the sweetest
Of the Liverpool Lullabies.

If you're ever lonely
You fear you cannot sleep
All through your troubled days
You crave my company,
Sing the songs that I sang softly
Don't you be afraid to cry,
And you'll hear me sing the sweetest
Of the Liverpool Lullabies.

The ship's moored on the Mersey
In the cold wind rock
And the sounds of men and horses
Clatter on the cobbled docks
And in the little house
Where you and I reside
I will sing to you the sweetest
Of the Liverpool Lullabies.
