about

This song came into existence thanks to Rose Polenzani's invitation to be part of a Subrosa at the Lizard Lounge, Cambridge, MA 2013. The theme was BABIES.

lyrics

Under the silvery maple one baby sleeps
He has your eyes. You didn’t know, you didn’t know.
Lifts you off your feet, makes every end meet
You hear your mother’s mother’s mother’s song.
Watch those babies sleep.
Watch and when they wake.
With hope’s little hand wrapped around your finger
no beginning nor end has joy.
Know it now, now is love
Love is yes, yes is this.
Watch those babies sleep.
Watch and when they wake.
Your heart is aching
Arms embracing wonder.
Watch those babies sleep.
Watch and when they wake.
Love lies sleeping
Love wakes dreaming
Babies, babies,
love and babies.
