Tom Waits - Lullaby Lyrics




Sun is red; moon is cracked
Daddy's never coming back
Nothing's ever yours to keep
Close your eyes, go to sleep
If I die before you wake
Don't you cry don't you weep

Nothing's ever as it seems
Climb the ladder to your dreams
If I die before you wake
Don't you cry; don't you weep
Nothing's ever yours to keep
Close your eyes; go to sleep

Tom Waits Lullaby Comments
  1. Gladius Draco

    I actually fell asleep to this once.

  2. Laura Rojas

    Sun is red; moon is cracked
    Daddy's never coming back
    Nothing's ever yours to keep
    Close your eyes, go to sleep
    If I die before you wake
    Don't you cry don't you weep
    Nothing's ever as it seems
    Climb the ladder to your dreams
    If I die before you wake
    Don't you cry; don't you weep
    Nothing's ever yours to keep
    Close your eyes; go to sleep

  3. Peio López

    'Don't you cry, don't you weep', dice. Será cabrón...

  4. Casperillion

    I have listened to this song roughly 50,000 times. Obviously not on YouTube though, I have a CD.

    I often listen to the entire "Blood Diamond" album to get the feeling of how the songs sound like in context. Hearing that slightly scary instrumental song "Knife Chase" right before calming yourself down with this song is very relieving, which also makes you prepared for the next song "Starving in the belly of a whale".

  8. Lars Nilsson

    Sun is red; moon is cracked
    Daddy's never coming back
    Nothing's ever yours to keep
    Close your eyes, go to sleep
    If I die before you wake
    Don't you cry, don't you weep

    Nothing's ever as it seems
    Climb the ladder to you dreams
    If I die before you wake
    Don't you cry, don't you weep
    Nothing's ever yours to keep
    Close your eyes; go to sleep

    dL1011

    Well, he is kinda scary looking -- just like Santa Claus.  :-P

    Maybe your voice is shit, your face is donkeyish, or you just generally suck ass.  It's not Tom's fault.  Don't blame genius, bud.

    Mulvar Nutze
