Australian singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke performs her 2019 track, Ernie as a dedication to her son, Ernie. Miller-Heidke and her husband, Keir Nuttall, wrote Ernie as a reflection parenthood.
They tell documentary program, Australian Story: “Having a kid for the first time is an incredible rush of emotions. There’s elation, despair, gratitude, guilt, sorrow, hilarity and love. Ernie’s father and I wrote the song about that onslaught of often contradictory feelings. It’s a love so intense that it can be scary.”
This film clip was edited by Australian Story’s Kai-Bin Wong.

Lyrics
[Verse 1]
Ernie sleeps and I’m awake
Does he see me, does he see me among the shifting shapes?
The day is tired and so am I
Still I can’t believe my luck
I hope I don’t make too many mistakes
He fell off, fell off the chair, the second I looked away
Just about anything makes me cry
Still I can’t believe my, can’t believe my luck

[Pre-Chorus 1]
You’re a chubby little pudge ball
Half animal, half cupid
You know next to nothing
Still you make me feel so stupid

[Chorus 1]
And I can’t believe my luck
I am yours and you are mine
Oh I’ve really come unstuck this time
I can’t believe my luck

[Verse 2]
He landed like an alien
From a distant, dark and liquid planet
Turned this whole house upside down
We will never be the same now
(We will never be the same now)

[Pre-Chorus 2]
But I don’t trust my own memory
Who you were last week is blurry already
And I’m so happy watching you dance today
But by tomorrow, you’ll be changed again

[Chorus 2]
And I’m not good at letting go
Won’t you stay the way you are
It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever known
And I can’t believe my luck

[Bridge]
Is he only sleeping?
Yes he is still breathing
Is he only sleeping?
Yes he is still breathing
Is he only sleeping?
Yes he is still breathing
Is he only?
Is he only?
Yes he is still

[Outtro]
Ernie sleeps and I’m awake
