Theme

This song is about a little girl whose mother is always smoking in front of her, but she wants her to stop. Her father isn't around, so Melanie gives the girl advice to just stay in bed tucked under the covers.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Too ready his little girl, you've gone so far
Keep begging until you're smiling, you're a movie star
Songs from the 50's your mamas used to sing
Oh, in the kitchen while she's makin' dinner for your family

[Verse 2]
Keep dreaming, baby girl, keep your head up high
Waiting for your mama to sing lullabies
But daddy isn't here and mama's smoking stacks
Oh, headaches from the smokey smell
Ain't getting wrecked

[Chorus]
Closure to encourage and I'll be awake
Sing yourself to sleep, learn how to be afraid
All you have is God, always a rivalry
While your lungs get filled with all the smoke you breathe

[Bridge]
Don't you worry, now you're safe, you little thing
Daddy will come back and therefore he will sing
Sing a precious lullaby to you, he will
While mama smokes her cancer to the dawn still

[Chorus]
Closure to encourage and I'll be awake
Sing yourself to sleep, learn how to be afraid
All you have is God, always a rivalry
While your lungs get filled with all the smoke you breathe

[Chorus]
Closure to encourage and I'll be awake
Sing yourself to sleep, learn how to be afraid
All you have is God, always a rivalry
While your lungs get filled with all the smoke you breathe
