"Heartbreak Lullaby" as written by and Peter/kask Mansson....
Heartbreak lullaby
In the still of the night
I can almost feel you lying next to me
Like it used to be

And its hard to let go
When there's always something there reminding me
How things could be
I've tried to get you off my mind
I've tried to play my part

But every time I close my eyes
You're still inside my heart
Why can't I laugh?
Why must I cry?

Every time we say good-bye
Why does it rain
Here in my heart
Everyday that we're apart

Why can't it be
Just you and me,
What will it take to make you see
These are the words

To my Heartbreak Lullaby
Like the stars in the sky
You still keep on shining down you're light on me
But out of reach

And I know that in time
You will come back to your senses
See the signs
And change your mind

I try to look the other way
And keep my heart on hold,
But every time I'm close to you
I lose my self-control

Why can't I laugh?
Why must I cry?
Every time we say good-bye
Why does it rain

Here in my heart
Everyday that we're apart
Why can't it be
Just you and me

What will it take to make you see
These are the words
To my Heartbreak Lullaby
Why can't I laugh?

Why must i cry?
Give me just one good reason why
Why does it rain
Here in my heart

Everyday that we're apart
Why can't it be
Just you and me
What will it take to make you see

These are the words
To my Heartbreak Lullaby
[Chorus: x 2]
