"Lullaby" as written by Brent Kutzle and Ryan B Tedder....
Days feel hard earned
Night grows longer
Summer says its goodbyes
And darkness covers
We find shelter
Our own place to hide

Oh
As the light goes out
Thoughts turn to angels
Over us
Oh
As the night comes in
Dreams start their drifting
And you hear
A lullaby

Ooooh
A lullaby
You and I

Trees touch windows
Say their hellos
We hear this house as it settles in
Worry slips away
It don't know your name
It don't know where to find us

Oh
As the light goes out
Thoughts turn to angels
All around us
Oh
As the night comes in
Dreams start their drifting
And we hear
A lullaby
A lullaby
You and I
You and I

Lullaby
Oooh

    General CommentI personally dont think its about dieing, i think he wrote it to be exactly that, a lullaby. the part that speaks alot to me is
    "Trees touch windows
    Say their hellos
    We hear this house as it settles in"
    Reminds me of falling asleep as a kid with the trees scratching the windows and hearing the creaking of my parents house as i fall asleep. Brings back good memories

    My InterpretationI think that when he says that "Thoughts turn to angels
    All around us", is a way to say that your thoughts are getting lighted and more more stress-free. They transform into happy, calm and welcoming thought that just wonder around; maybe keeping us safe, protecting us (like guardians angels) from the "Worry (who) slips away ".

    Song MeaningI love this song so much! There is no doubt what the song is about. It is about winter coming on, and is not a sad song. Read the lyrics about nights getting longer, finding shelter, etc. The happy words are "Worry slips away
    It don't know your name
    It don't know where to find us". In essence they happily and together have found shelter from the winter.
