Song will play shortly
THE LAST LULLABY . This song imagines the last reflections of one of those left in "No Man's Land" after a battle. Written in waltz time it suggests the life left behind by the more privileged young men.
The Last Lullabyby © John Johns 2008
And I wish I could see you one final time * But your voice is coming to me now sweet and sublime * Singing a lullaby - the last I will hear * Don't think I'll be coming home - so sorry my dear * Life can go on without me - you'll make it all right * And I'm wishing that I could be with you tonight *
CHORUS * The band is playing now - we're spinning around * You're singing to the music - a beautiful sound * Our friends are all with us now - there's laughter and light * And I wish I could be with you dancing tonight *
So many brave soldiers have fallen today * Alone in the darkness as life ebbs away * With the battle all over - eternity near * Last thoughts are of loved ones - those that are dear * At the end of the day now - the end of the fight * I'm wishing that I could be with you tonight *
You're wearing your dress of emerald green * Your eyes are the brightest that I've ever seen * They're looking into mine now with laughter and love * And I'm hoping we'll meet again somewhere above * Yes I'm hoping we'll meet again somewhere above
