Lyrics

Why are you looking at me that way

What are you seeing inside

‘Cause there’s nothing, nothing, nothing behind these eyes

Something about this is bothering me

Something about the way that you’re breathing

Don’t you believe that there’s nothing to see

Nothing of interest in here

 

I will sing a lullaby

Hoping you will close your eyes

And you’ll stop trying to find in me

All the answers you want to see

Won’t you let me free

 

Don’t try to tell me you know the score

You let all your demons go free

You know nothing, nothing, nothing at all about me

You haven’t looked to the left or the right

You have a smile of anticipation

But I haven’t got any strength left to fight

And so I will rock you to sleep

 

I will sing a lullaby

Hoping you will close your eyes

And you’ll stop trying to find in me

All the answers you want to see

Pull this veil across your eyes

Keep you warm and hypnotized

And try to make you forget

All the answers you want to get

Won’t you let me free

 

Lay your head down

Close your weary eyes

Breathe in, breathe out

That’s right, no more talking

Hush now, OK

I’ll just sit beside you

And when you wake

I’ll be gone

 

I will sing a lullaby

Hoping you will close your eyes

And you’ll stop trying to find in me

All the answers you want to see

Pull this veil across your eyes

Keep you warm and hypnotized

And try to make you forget

All the answers you want to get

Won’t you let me free
