lyrics

Sleepy Halls

You used to come to bed at half-past three
You’d wake me up so you could talk to me
And you’d tell me of your day
In your animated way
You used to come to bed at half-past three

And if I slipped back down those sleepy halls
You’d bring me around

You’ve got a million friends attached by chains
You’ve got so many I forget their names
And the chains are forged in trust
And they shatter and they rust
But some are made with unconditional love

And it’s these that bind us still
And that’s how you bend me to your will

I piggy-backed you up an emerald hill
I’m rolling down: I’m Jack and you are Jill
But I did not break my crown
And we laughed ‘til the sun went down
I piggy-backed you up an emerald hill

And if I slipped back down that emerald hill
You’d bring me around

You used to come to bed at half-past three
You’d wake me up so you could talk to me
And you’d tell me of your day
In your animated way
You used to come to bed at half-past three
You’d wake me up so you could talk to me
