  • Nothing so bright
    Nothing so smooth
    Nothing so pure
    As my baby

    All of my life
    Days into night
    All I did dream was my baby

    Until the day
    Darkness entwined
    With silver eyes
    Was my baby staring at me

    And since then I can't see straight
    And since then my smile's been fake
    Funny I know, the troubles I've seen
    But through one eye only that's clear

    If you bring along your needles
    Then I'll bring my sharpened pencils
    And draw one more comic tragedy
    My baby
    So call up the child players
    From madam we'll rent the parlor
    And dance to death
    Till I can't see
    My baby Writer/s: Martha Wainwright
