​Lullaby for Irena

This song is by Wyatt/Atzmon/Stephen and appears on the album '..........for the ghosts within' (2010).

You were there for me all along
You were there for me when I had no body
There to care for me
Long before the day that I was born
In the air
Long before the day that I was born

You were there so I could be
From the air to your body, you gave my spirit life
You made my world
And all my wise and all my foolish ways
You gave the world to me
All its winters, all its summer days

I was there for you all along
I was there with you, flying high
And dancing with the birds for you
To the music of your lullabies
In the air
Long before the day that I was born
