For my sister, Lauren, on your first mothers day.
You're gonna be a great mother.
A NOTE FROM DIEGO:
I wrote this song a few weeks after learning that I was gonna be an uncle. I wanted to write something that would give voice to my sister's spirit and warmth since nursery rhymes are usually very dark and let's face it kids songs are annoying. Don't believe me, give your kids a plastic recorder and teach them the song from their favorite Pixar or Disney film. Exactly! I wanted to write a song that a lullaby, a song about a mother's love. I had the melody the glockenspiel plays for a few months but no chord progressions or lyrics. I sat down at the little piano in the house, figured out the melody and key and begin to try and sing through my sister's voice. So from this proud and blessed family to yours, happy mother's day.
My nephew Lucas was born after 2am on May 19th, 2018.
He was 7 pounds 11 ounces.
The dawn it will come soon my love
The dawn it will come soon
The sky will change to blue my love
The sky will change to blue
The sun will rise up soon my dear
The sun will rise up soon
The flowers will bloom in spring my dear
The flowers they will bloom
And if you could see
How special you are to me
And if I could show
Then darling you would know
Don’t fear, don’t cry now my love
No don’t be scared tonight
The stars will shine for you my love
The stars they will shine
Your dreams will be sweet tonight my dear
Your dreams they will be sweet
If you should wake before the day
Then right here I will be
