Lullaby of Halcyon

Lullaby of Halcyon

1 min 353 1 min 353

Winter stood out as alien

Dressed in ripped cold

As I stay inside

Behind the door

To scare the stranger away.


Short tap on the door.

Yeah babygirl, I know,

You ain't see me until now

"I'm the Pied Piper"

From the unknown

Let me enter now, please.

Open the door now

Let me make you feel home

Sleep, sleep, sleep yeah,

In the lullaby of Halcyon.


You and I, together

Sit your cries to eat for now

And when they are hungry again

To fall.

Put your nightmares to leave

Holidays for seven

Until they visit you on eighth

When Halloween starts again.

After the lullaby of Halcyon

Breathes its last and welcomes the dead again.


I see a dream now.

We clothed in snow

My heart, too young to know.

Danced in the madness of moonlight

Slowly snow began to melt

Lie now naked

Too white as the red ceased, me now.

Winter, where are you?

But you in nowhere

Left by eight

Awake by nightmares to hold me again

In the light

Hangover in the lullaby of Halcyon again.
