the lullaby singer lyrics – anna nalick

“the lullaby singer”

you say, “baby, turn the light out”
but i can see there’s something crying in your smile now
yeah, you used to be the glitter in the dirt
and now you say it’s just you feel a little dusty

why didn’t anybody tell you that it ain’t easy
life don’t imitate reality tv
i can see you tugging on a wishbone
angling an outcome
bones will only break their words

but you don’t know that it beats my heart
to black and blue all over
when you cry those tears
like paper cuts and iodine

when you were here
i couldn’t find the words to say
i’ll be your lullaby singer
i won’t let you down
i promise to try and try
lullaby, lullaby
lullaby, lullaby

panic is a shotgun
i don’t know if i can get you out of this one
but you can call me up at twenty after midnight
i’ll stay on the line to talk you down and tuck you in

eyes wide open brighter than the candles
on a cake you wasted wishes on when you were okay

when you were here
i couldn’t find the words to say
i’ll be your lullaby singer
i won’t let you down
i promise to try and try
lullaby, lullaby
lullaby, lullaby
