Song Description

With a soothing guitar and cello accompaniment, this male/female duet makes the perfect lullaby for mommy and daddy to sing to their little ones. Gentle, loving and persuasive, Close Your Eyes is just the gravity your child's eyelids need at bedtime.

Story Behind the Song

Over 40 years ago, I wrote this song, but it was Little Sister Lullaby, a song that I wrote for my little sister Frannie. I always loved the tune, so I decided to rewrite the lyrics for my new CD, Lightning Bug Lullabies. My favorite part is the "tiny or tall, happy or sad, we'll always be your mom and your dad." That's Jamie DeFrates (my producer) singing the daddy part. I love the way this song came out.

Really pretty song!! Such a nice, touching lyric! The musical arrangement is fantastic....acoustic guitar and strings play off each other so nicely. Vocal is also nice....warm, sincere quality. Really well done!!

    - Greg Johnson

A cheerful lullaby that encourages a little one to sleep to enjoy the realm of sleep.

    - John Hazlett
Lyrics

Little Darlin' lying on your bed
Precious baby, such a sleepyhead
Wanting to slumber and yearning to listen
Close your eyes, you won't know what you're missin'
Close your eyes, Close your eyes

Before you came I didn't have a clue
Of how my heart would swell at the sight of you
Every eyelash so perfect and sweet
Fluttering closed now to welcome the dream
Close your eyes, Close your eyes

And if I could I'd keep you just this way
But you keep growin' bigger every day
But tiny or tall, happy or sad,
We'll always be your mom and your dad.
Close your eyes, close your eyes
May God bless you.
May God guide you.
May God keep you.
Close your eyes.
