Midnight Girl

I wrote this tonight, just in time for Father's Day. Why am I posting it at this hour? Well, daisy_knotwise has been in the other room trying to get Katie to go to sleep. I think she's just succeeded. Maybe...

Midnight Girl
(Chorus)
You’re my midnight girl and you’re bouncing on my knee.
You’re my midnight girl and would you go to sleep for me?
And when you look up at the stars, well, I wonder what you see.
You’re my midnight girl, come fly away with me.

I was dreaming of an answer to a prayer.
Then I woke up and saw that you were there,
My pretty little baby with eyes of shining blue.
I’ve waited half a lifetime to meet you.

Now I find my life is really strange.
Take preconceptions and learn to rearrange.
Early to bed they said and early we would rise,
But I see that midnight sparkle in your eyes.

(Bridge)
Come along with me and we’ll chase a comet’s tail,
Fly the asteroids and unfurl our solar sail
And watch it shimmer gently in the light,
But now, my dear, it’s time to say good night.

It really is much later than it seems
So till the morning, I wish you pleasant dreams.
And I’m sure it is much wiser to sing softer lullabyes,
But this one’s for the stars there in your eyes.

(Chorus to end)
You’re my midnight girl, come fly away with me.
