Track Name: Bébé
Seven o'clock and the little baby sleeps.
Who knows what in the night-time creeps.
A blanket over his pale shoulder.
Lord knows how much till he's older.

I won't forget
What you look like at night.

Cut the way that lets you in!
O you knightly paladin!
Stop now and lend your ear:
"I'm a midnight pioneer."
Dance the deep enchanted wood.
You failed now; you thought you could.
Tickle your throat and scratch your skin.
Watch her, O Anne Boleyn.

(Hear the cars on the rue, Pie IX.
O Lord don't wake him up.
Tip-toe off to our bed.
Rest now your weary head.
Damn the ambulance running by!
Damn you, you firefly!
Damn you, the midnight hour!
The power's off, the power's off.)

I won't forget
What you look like at night.

//

I've got to stop worrying so much now
About you little baby.
Now I've got to stop worrying so much
About you little baby.

//

See your heart pump gently.
See your chest rise slowly.
See your heart pump gently.
See your chest rise slowly.
Track Name: 3h00
Boreal, taiga—O whate'er they call you to sea.
I spend my nights at three o'clock
With you, with you, with you.

Black and white and blue I won't let them touch you again.
I spend my days so fearful that I'll
Lose you, O lose you.
Track Name: Sleepytime
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Morning Airs
Breathe in the morning air.
Breathe in deep.
Breathe in the morning air.
Breathe in deep.

Breathe in the morning sun.
Breathe in bright.
Breathe in the morning moon.
Breathe in light.
Track Name: Toy Box
"I hear in the chamber above me
The patter of little feet,
The sound of a door that is opened,
And voices soft and sweet."

//

"I have you fast in my fortress,
And will not let you depart,
But put you down into the dungeon
In the round-tower of my heart.

And there will I keep you forever,
Yes, forever and a day,
Till the walls shall crumble to ruin,
And moulder in dust away!"

//

See your heart pump gently.
See your heart pump gently.
