about

A lullaby about the promise and apology we make to children when we tell them they'll inherit the earth.

lyrics

Do not fear the monsters under your bed,
Only fear the monsters in your head.
Sleep my child and wake to a bright day.
It’ll all be yours one day.

I’ve done my best to make a world that’s kind,
Though I cannot promise peace of mind.
We’ve come so far, there’s still a long, long way.
It’ll all be yours one day.

Close your eyes and sleep without a care.
Don’t dream about the burdens that you’ll bear.
The shoulders you stand on have feet of clay,
But it’ll all be yours one day.

I’m already sorry for all of the worry,
For a world in complete disarray.
One day I’ll be gone, you’ll be all on your own.
It’ll all be yours one day.

I will keep watch over you at night,
Gird you for the battles that you’ll fight
With song and sword and pen you’re in the fray,
and it’ll all be yours one day.

I hope when you grow up that you’ll stand tall.
And stop to help another when they fall.
I pass the torch so you can light the way,
It’ll all be yours one day.
