Lullaby For A Stormy Night

"little child, be not afraid
though rain pounds harshly against the glass
like an unwanted stranger,
there is no danger
I am here tonight..."

"little child, be not afraid
though thunder explodes and a lightning flash
illuminates your tear-stained face
I am here tonight..."

"...and someday you'll know
that nature is so...
the same rain that draws you near me
falls on rivers and land, on forests and sand
makes the beautiful world that you'll see
in the morning..."

"for you know, once even I was a little child,
and I was afraid
but a gentle someone always came
to dry all my tears, trade sweet sleep for fears
and to give a kiss goodnight...

well now I am grown
and these years have shown that rain's a part of how life goes
but it's dark and it's late so I'll hold you and wait
til your frightened eyes do close..."

"In the morning...everythings fine in the morning..."

(Lyrics from: Vienna Teng-
Lullaby For A Stormy Night)

I adore Vienna Teng!!! This was a beautiful post. & Sorry I didn't comment in time on your last post, but Owl City is amazing. They are in my city performing right now, for free, but I can't go on a school night.
Plus, their beautiful music is hurting my already broken heart. Its harder than I thought to move on.
