rory's lullaby

Somehow, over the 5 months that I've been putting Rory to sleep over and over for naps and bedtime, I've sort of settled on a song. It was one of the first songs I ever learned on the guitar, and it really just came to mean a lot more as I've sung it over and over and over. I don't even mind how often I sing it, because it's such a simple melody and fantastic lyrics and, really, such a perfect lullaby. It happened so randomly, but I love that it's become Rory's.

So thanks Coldplay, for writing "Yellow" almost 15 years ago.

"Yellow"

Look at the stars, 
Look how they shine for you, 
And everything you do, 
Yeah, they were all yellow. 

I came along, 
I wrote a song for you, 
And all the things you do, 
And it was called "Yellow". 

So then I took my turn, 
Oh what a thing to have done, 
And it was all yellow. 

Your skin, 
Oh yeah your skin and bones, 
Turn into 
Something beautiful, 
You know, 
You know I love you so, 
You know I love you so. 

I swam across, 
I jumped across for you, 
Oh what a thing to do. 
'Cause you were all yellow, 
I drew a line, 
I drew a line for you, 
Oh what a thing to do, 
And it was all yellow. 

Your skin, 
Oh yeah your skin and bones, 
Turn into 
Something beautiful, 
And you know, 
For you I'd bleed myself dry, 
For you I'd bleed myself dry. 

It's true, 
Look how they shine for you, 
Look how they shine for you, 
Look how they shine for, 
Look how they shine for you, 
Look how they shine for you, 
Look how they shine. 

Look at the stars, 
Look how they shine for you, 
And all the things that you do.
