embrace me you child lyrics – carly simon

(carly simon)

at night (in bed) i heard god whisper lullabyes
while daddy next door whistled whiskey tunes
and sometimes when i wanted, they would harmonize
there was nothing those two couldn’t do

embrace me you child, you’re a child of mine
and i’m leaving everything i am to you
go chase the wild and night time streets sang daddy
and god sang, pray the devil doesn’t get to you

i thought together they must sing the moon away
i thought that they must know each other well
for the magic that they made, when they played
wasn’t lost between their heaven and their h*ll

then one night daddy died and went to heaven
and god came down to earth and slipped away
i pretended not to (know) i’d been abandoned
but no-one sang the night into the day
and later night time songs came back again
but the singers don’t compare with those i knew
and i never figured out where god and daddy went
but there was nothing those two couldn’t do
