Alone with Ol' Sister

My, my,
Oh sugar pie.
We're all alone,
No mother, no clone.

In the house,
Sounds of a mouse,
Scare us to death,
It holds our breathe.
It takes our courage,
It takes feeling,
Fear from the ground to the ceiling.

With lights on,
We say goodnight,
But it's hard to sleep,
'Cause it's too bright.

Where have they gone?
Tell me, my sister,
Before the dawn.
Before we cry.
I'm just a fawn,
I'm just a baby,
Sprawled on the lawn,
Are hopes and dreams.

My, my,
Oh sugar pie,
We're all alone,
No mother, no clone.

Where have they gone?
And do they notice?
That we're still here,
That we're still here.

Younger sister,
Don't suck your thumb,
I'll hold you,
Until they come,
Until they rescue,
Our young souls,
Count to three,
And it'll all be gone.

Innocence,
And a quiet dream,
A sacred wish,
And our favorite dish,
I promise you,
That's when they'll come.
To make up,
For where they crawled from.

Where have they gone?
Tell me, my sister,
Before the dawn,
Before we cry.
I'm just a fawn,
I'm just a baby,
Sprawled on the lawn,
Are Mom and Dad.

Lifeless as the sea,
Before the storm,
Only you and me to mourn.
