Dylan Sylvester - Lullaby for Myself

from An Intimate Evening by Grade School Records



An insomniac lullaby with a plinky ukulele that sounds like a music box. Dylan has actually used it to help him sleep.


There's a light in my room and it won't let me sleep
I could easily blow it our or I could
Just go sleep somewhere else
But the warmth that it cast is a warmth
I don't think I have ever felt
It's prettier than anything I've ever seen
And it dances with me when I speak

And I don't know how long it's been since I've slept
Dreaming is the last thing on my mind

This couch that I've found myself on
Is smaller than it looks
There's almost no covers to speak of
But I've made this bed now I must lie down
It's gotten so late that it's got to be early
The birds must be singing by now
Tell them to sing as loud as they please
Because I don't plan on getting sleep

I don't know how long I've been awake
Dreaming is the last thing on my mind

There's a light in my room
