THE LULLABY THIEF  
©1993 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI

In the darkness, while you’re sleeping
There’s a thief standing near
In that moment, of the peaceful
When you’re not even there
He will catch you with a whisper
Lonely ladies they know
He is watching, he is waiting
He won’t let you go

He will haunt you till the morning
Through the morning too
You don’t know him
But you’ve touched him
Somehow he’s touched you

You drink your coffee, you let him fade
Or maybe take him through your day
Was he someone that you knew, oh no
He was no one to you
Just a feeling, a spirit moving, he was moving through

In the evening you lay hoping
You won’t dream alone
Come back stranger, oh, strange intruder
Your faceless partner he’s gone

You drank your coffee, you let him fade
Oh in your waking he slipped away
Was he someone that you knew, oh no
He was no one to you
Just a feeling, a spirit moving, he was moving through – you
