Cradle Song by Shriekback
Taken from the album ?Big Night Music?.

        C                                   F
Sing a cradle song now as the light fades around us
                          G                      F
And you breathe like the ocean, lying small in my arms
                  C                         F
See it all in a moment, you so young and unclouded
                     G                         F
Shining bright as a lion, feel the motion of time
         G                        C
As the world rolls away from the sun.
                       Am                   G
I can feel your life burning, unlived moments within you
Further than I can see.


           C                                  F
May the fire be your friend and the sea rock you gently,
                   G                        C
May the moon light your way, ?till the wind sets you free.

I remember your face as you cried for the first time

The cold air of the world and the fierce light of day and the cruel separation

In a world washed with tears, numbed with pain to unfeeling

May you hold to your truth as you walk the dark light of unreason

The stone walls which surround us - may your spirit fly round them

Like the wind from the sea.


                    Am                      G
May you never know hunger, may you live with a full heart
The light stay in your eyes.


The song was written by Barry Andrews, the lead singer.
This line-up of the band included:  Barry Andrews, Dave Allen
Mike Cozzi, Steve Halliwell, Wendy and Sarah Partridge,
Hugo Burnham, and Gavin MacKillop.

The album was released in 1986.

This is my first submission so be gentle with me.
