​Rooftop Lullaby

This song is by Jack Lukeman and appears on the album Metropolis Blue (1999).

Mother, is there something in the sky?
Something up there that they hide
A jewel for me and you

An apple tree with fallen fruit

Oh daughter
Now I don't know but I believe
That its beauty's beyond words
It's like a tune that I can't sing
But I've heard it sung by birds

It' a rooftop lullaby
Falling from the sky
Sends us to sleep tonight
It's the apple in your eye
Keeps you as sweet as pie
Dreaming through the night

Oh father
Now won't you tell me if you know
Where does half of the moon go
When it's not up in the sky?
It disappears before my eyes

Oh my son
Why does morning break each day?
Why do people pass away?
Oh it's the mystery in truth
It's the innocence of youth

Or a rooftop lullaby
Falling from the sky
Sends us to sleep tonight
It's the apple in your eye
Keeps you as sweet as pie
Dreaming through the night

It's a rooftop lullaby
Falling from the sky
Sends us to sleep tonight

Lull-lull-lull-lull-lullaby
