Treasure Island

Let it be calm


Play a song for me
so I can enjoy dancing free.
Open the door so I can breathe
and make the bread to eat.

See the kids with their tiny feet
play happily in our street.
Sit and listen,
just don't say a word,
just feel
my hand in yours.

Give me a hug and hold me close,
so the cold does not get into this mind.
Let it be calm,
don't make a place
for the anger to feel at home.

Rock the baby, so it does not cry,
feed the cat, so he curls up and sleeps.
Tell the mother-in-law
not to come round
that we do not need her today
for my love, I think today
should just be ours.
