Lyrics

Too Soon

Written By: Peg Thompson


TOO SOON
Words & Music by Peg Thompson (BMI)

Lullaby my little one
Rest sweet baby in my loving arms
Dream of kittens in their mittens
And cows jumping over the moon

Lullaby my growing child
Too big to rest in loving arms
Dream of soldiers with toy cannons
Sing songs with silly tunes

Sleep all afternoon
Sleep all afternoon
You'll grow up TOO SOON
You'll grow up TOO SOON

Lullaby my brave one
No place to rest so far away
Hear the guns and mortar shells
And tanks rolling on streets and dunes

Fight all afternoon
Fight all afternoon
You've grown up TOO SOON
You've grown up TOO SOON

Lullaby, Lullaby
Rest sweetly underneath the tree
Sleep in silence, rest in peace
(Hmm)

Endless afternoons
Endless afternoons
You're gone TOO SOON
You're gone TOO SOON

Ocean of Whiskey

Written By: Peg Thompson


OCEAN OF WHISKEY
Words & Music by Peg Thompson (BMI)

My father, he spent all his life
Surrendering every breath
To the rising tide
Of liquor from a bottle

Every day was a world of gray
Drinking to dull the pain
Chasing demons away
With courage from a bottle

Sleep, sleep
Rock yourself to sleep
Drift for days
In a foggy haze
Drown your dreams
In an OCEAN OF WHISKEY
Sail, sail
Sail off the edge of the sea

There was a gulf between us
With water too deep to cross
Something never discussed
Slow suicide in a bottle

(Repeat Chorus)

Alone

Written By: Peg Thompson

ALONE
Words & Music by Peg Thompson (BMI)

Thinking 'bout life
Crying bitter tears
Never knowing what is real
Remembering lost years

Cursing the past
How did I survive
Tangled up with sad regrets
Am I dead or alive

I sit ALONE
In the pale moon's shadows
Surrounded by gray visions
Illusions of forgotten dreams
Confusions of a thousand scenes

Caught in a trap
Powerless to change
Didn't know the price I'd pay
The world feels so strange

Choices I made
For money, love and power
Thought my fate was sealed
'Til the eleventh hour

(Repeat Chorus)

Following the dim light
I shed these clothes of pain
I take flight

In the distance I hear a song to be sung
I see a dance to be danced
