lyrics

The sun comes up as the paper arrives
Daddy is catching the 6:25
Laura's reminded as she locks the door
That Mama don't live here anymore
Nobody lives here anymore

A southbound train took her far from here
Laura remained just to finish the year
Mama said they needed a chance to unwind
But Daddy didn't have the time
Daddy never had the time

Now hush little Laura, keep it all inside
Living alone makes it easy to hide
You're hanging around but you're running away
'Cause your mind is resigning but your heart won't stay
(Singing Ahh...)
Sing along with the Long Island Lullaby

Nobody mourned them or called it a crime
It was only a sign of these New York Times
Nobody warned them of a place in the heart
Where a tear in the lining tore them apart
A tear in the lining tore her apart

The moonlight falls where the sun once shone
Laura is wandering off on her own
To walk to the water and wish on a star
Trying to find out where they are
Dying to find out who they are

Now hush little Laura, if your heart don't sing
Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring
But somehow that diamond ring don't shine
When the lullaby comes on the telephone line
(Singing Ahh...)
Sing along with the Long Island Lullaby

So you wait for the wind to blow your dreams to the land
As you reach to the shore and write your name in the sand
While the waves of the winter whisper a sigh
And sing along with the Long Island Lullaby
(Singing Ahh...)
Sing along with the Long Island Lullaby

The sun comes up as the paper arrives
Telling the story of too many lives
Laura only needed a reason to shine
But Daddy didn't have the time
Daddy never had the time
