Hushabye, hushabye
Oh baby of mine
Hushabye, for now it's night
The sun has gone to sleep

Hushabye, hushabye
Oh baby of mine
Hushabye, off to sleep
The moon will guard your dreams

And I will sing you lullaby
I will sing you lullaby
Tooraloora tooralai
Hush now, hushabye

Track Name: You'll Be Asleep Soon
You'll Be Asleep Soon

Each little finger
On each little hand
Each little freckle
Each sweet eyelash

You'll be asleep soon
You'll soon be asleep
You'll be asleep soon
You'll soon be asleep

Each little toe
One each little foot
And every sweet step
Those little feet took

You'll be asleep soon
You'll soon be asleep
You'll be asleep soon
You'll soon be asleep

Each little smile
And each little laugh
Imprints on my heart
Like a photograph

You'll be asleep soon
You'll soon be asleep
You'll be asleep soon
You'll soon be asleep

Soon you'll be asleep, asleep
Soon you'll be asleep, asleep
Asleep
Soon be asleep

Track Name: Little One
Little One

Soft is your bed
Little one, lay down your head
Little one, drift off to sleep
Little one, cosy and deep

Hear the nightingale sing softly
In your dreams tonight
Softly singing you the sweetest, gentle lullaby

Heavy and warm
Little one, slumber 'til dawn
Little one, drift off to sleep
Little one, cosy and deep

Hear the nightingale sing softly
In your dreams tonight
Softly singing you the sweetest, gentle lullaby

Drift off to sleep
Cosy and deep
Track Name: Lake Of Lanterns
Lake of Lanterns

Like a lake of lanterns
The stars above you glow
Illuminating indigo
The night sky starlit show

Floating in the stillness
Hanging in the quiet
Warm and glowing lanterns
Lighting up the night

Safely you will sleep under the night sky
For the lake of lanterns guards the quiet
Softly they will burn until the sunrise
They'll light again tonight

Floating up above us
Dancing while you sleep
Warm and glowing lanterns
Safely guard your dream

Safely you will sleep under the starlight
For the lake of lanterns guards the quiet
Softly they will burn until the sunrise
They'll light again tonight

Instrumental

Like a lake of lanterns
Dark blanket of the night
Glitter stardust on your dreams
Our hearts are glowing bright

Safely you will sleep under the starlight
For the lake of lanterns guards the quiet
Softly they will burn until the sunrise
They'll light again tonight
Track Name: Lay Your Head Down
Lay Your Head Down

Time for sleep, time to rest
Lay your head down
I hold your hand and your heart
Lay your head down

So snuggle down and dream, my dear
Dream, dream away
Snuggle down and dream, my dear
Dream, dream away

You are safe, safe and sound
Lay your head down
I'll be here when you wake
Lay your head down

So snuggle down and dream, my dear
Dream, dream away
Snuggle down and dream, my dear
Dream, dream away

Dream and know I hold you safe
Dream, dream away
Close your eyes and drift to sleep
Dream, dream away

(Instrumental)

So snuggle down and dream, my dear
Dream, dream away
Snuggle down and dream, my dear
Dream, dream away

Time for sleep, time to rest
Lay your head down
I'll be here when you wake
Lay your head down
Track Name: Hot Air Balloon
Hot Air Balloon



Tonight my bed became a hot air balloon
Lifting me up through the clouds and to the moon
The clouds were soft and fluffy like marshmallows in the sky
I reached and ran my fingers along pillows floating high

Oh the stars are bright and twinkling as I gaze below
I see fields and streams I see dreams filled with hope
The stars they shine like diamonds sparkling brightly in the night
I reached and ran my fingers through the star dust in the sky


Hot air balloon it takes me sailing through the night
Drifting through night’s blanket floating so high
The moon I saw him wink as I sailed passed his silver glow
I reached and ran my fingers through the clouds that drifted low

Oh oh

Tonight my bed became a hot air balloon
Lifting me up through the clouds and to the moon
The clouds were soft and fluffy like marshmallows in the sky
I reached and ran my fingers along pillows floating high

Tonight my bed became a hot air balloon
Track Name: The Leaves On The Trees
The Leaves on The Trees

The leaves on the trees
Flick up effortlessly
As the wind swiftly moves
Through the branches

It tickles the trees
See it dance in the breeze
Lifting limbs to the sky
As it arches

The wind whistles ‘round the bay
The breeze takes your woes away
And as you settle down to sleep
The breeze it brings you happy dreams

The blossom on the trees
Is free confetti
It looks just like snow
On the branches

Made of sunshine and silk
It falls like drops of milk
As the wind travels through
As it marches

The wind whistles ‘round the bay
The breeze takes your woes away
And as you settle down to sleep
The breeze it brings you happy dreams

(Instrumental)

The wind whistles ‘round the bay
The breeze takes your woes away
And as you settle down to sleep
The breeze it brings you happy dreams

The sun in the sky has to say goodnight
As the day approaches the evening
Track Name: Crochet Hearts
Crochet Hearts

You are my sunrise
You are the best part of my day
You help me realise
Our hearts are entwined like they're crochet

Our love knits us together
Warm and soft to touch
I never quite believed
I could love anyone this much

You are my blossom
The sweetest extension of me
And you hold my strength
Together a living family tree

Our love knits us together
Warm and soft to touch
I never quite believed
I could love anyone this much

(Instrumental)

I give you my love (love, love)
I give you my heart (boom, boom, boom)
Can you hear the beating of our crochet hearts?
I give you my love (love, love)
I give you my heart (boom, boom, boom)
Can you hear the beating of our crochet hearts?

Our love knits us together
Warm and soft to touch
I never quite believed
I could love anyone this much

You are my sunrise
You are the best part of my day
And you help me realise
Our hearts are entwined like they're crochet

ooh ooh ooh
Track Name: Hush Now
Hush Now

Hush now sweet baby of mine
Hush now sweet baby of mine
The winds of the night
So softly they sigh
Softly they blow
Over deep moonlit sky
Starlit mountains
Still quiet waters

(Instrumental)

Hush now sweet baby of mine
Hush now sweet baby of mine
The winds of the night
So softly they sigh
Softly they blow
Over deep moonlit sky
Starlit mountains
Still quiet waters

Hush now sweet baby of mine
Hush now sweet baby of mine
Hush now

Track Name: Stars Will Paint A Sunrise
Stars Will Paint a Sunrise

When you close your eyes
And settle your lashes
The stars will come alive
And pick up their paint brushes

As you sleep the stars will paint a sunrise for you
As you sleep the stars will paint a sunrise for you

When you lay down
In your bed
Know that you are loved
Magic stirs overhead

As you sleep the stars will paint a sunrise for you
As you sleep the stars will paint a sunrise for you

What a surprise
You won't believe your eyes
As the sun begins to rise
The canvas of our skies

(Instrumental)

As you sleep the stars will paint a sunrise for you
As you sleep the stars will paint a sunrise for you
