"Lullaby" as written by Taalib Johnson, Carvin Haggins, Ivan Barias and Lab Ratz,....
When you’re so lonely lying in bed
Night’s closed it’s eyes but you can’t rest your head
Everyone’s sleeping all through the house
You wish you could dream but forgot to somehow
Sing this lullaby to yourself
Sing this lullaby to yourself
And if you are waiting, waiting for me
Know I’ll be home soon darling I guarantee
I’ll be home Sunday just in one week
Dry up your tears if you start to weep
And sing this lullaby to yourself
Sing this lullaby to yourself
Lullaby, I’m not nearby
Sing this lullaby to yourself
Don’t you cry, no don’t you cry
Sing this lullaby to yourself
Cause when I arrive dear it won’t be that long
No it won’t seem like anytime that I’ve been gone
It ain’t the first time it won’t be the last
Won’t you remember these words to help the time pass?
So when you’re so lonely lying in bed
Night’s closed it’s eyes but you can’t rest your head
Everyone’s sleeping all through the house
You wish you could dream but forgot to somehow
Sing this lullaby to yourself
Sing this lullaby to yourself
Sing this lullaby, sing this lullaby
Sing this lullaby to yourself

    General Commentcant believe no one else has commented on this besides chisox and i!!! i created an account just so i could make a note about how beautiful this song is. ive never heard of matt costa, but his voice really is graceful, especially with jack backing it up. i am amazed that jack can come up with an album less than a year after his last one, and still have it please my ears almost as well. LISTEN TO THIS SONG, PEOPLE!

    General Commentomg, when I heard the intor of this song it almost made me cry! It's just such a beautiful, sweet melody, Matt Costa's voice is awesome and Jack's background vocals are lovely. It's my favorite song on that album, it's so comforting if your lonely or if you can't sleep. I'll love it forever.

    General CommentSuch a great song of unconditional love between (what I interpret as) father and daughter. It makes me think of the comfort and reassurance my parents gave me when I was little. Not just a kids' song by any means. And really, we grown-ups can learn a lot from kids' songs.

    General CommentReminds me of how terrible it is to have to leave someone special and not be able too reasurre or promise to come back soon.

    General CommentBluewaves: This actually isn't a song meant for kids. Matt Costa put a solo version on his first EP.
