Sound is a wave like a wave on the ocean
Moon plays the wave like a violin, pushing and pulling
From shore to shore, biggest melody you never heard before, no

What if I were the night sky? if I were the night sky
It's my lullaby to leave by

What if we hadn't been born at the same time
What if you were 75 and were 9?
Would I still visit you?
Bring you cookies in an old folks' home
Would you be there alone?
When the late summer ? fires off in your arms
Will I remember to breathe? no, I never will.

In a fire I could convince you that I mean you no harm
Just wanna show you I'm not too mean

If I were the the night sky, and if I were the night sky
Heres my lullaby
My lullaby to leave by
Lullaby to leave by
If I were the night

What if we hadn't been each other at the same time
Would you tell me all the stories from when you were young and in your prime
Would I rock you to sleep
Would you tell me all the secrets you don't need to keep
Would I still miss you

Oh, would you then have been mine?

Sound is a wave like a wave on the ocean
Moon plays the ocean like a violin
Pushing and pulling from shore to shore
Biggest melody you've never heard before

What if I were the night sky? I were the night sky
Here's my lullaby to leave my
My lullaby to leave by
Lullaby to leave by

If I were the night sky
