Lulabay to Erle Lyrics

Lulabay to Erle - Simon

Written by:Silje Nergaard

Mothers have woven a black velvet ocean

 

And spread it between the night and day shores

 

So that children might sleep gently rocked by the motion

 

Of waves beneath boats built by fathers like yours

 

With you safe aboard by the shore we will linger

 

And watch as your breathing it fills up the sail

 

You loosen the moorings your grip on our finger

 

And leave on the velvet a silvery trail

 

Alone on the shore with our heart close to breaking

 

We stand in the wake as you glide from our reach

 

Calmed by the thought that the voyage you're taking

 

Will bring you at dawn in back safe to this beach

 

We cannot sail with you be there to guide you

 

Or pilot your boat through the black of the night

 

But no ocean can keep you no darkness can hide you

 

Away from our love and it's undying light

 

We cannot sail with you be there to guide you

 

Or pilot your boat through the black of the night

 

But no ocean can keep you no darkness can hide you

 

Away from our love and it's undying light
