You said, “baby, turn the light out”
But I can see there’s some 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 isn’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 it burns
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 OK

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
Lulla-Lullaby
Lu-lulla-Lullaby
Lulla-Lullaby
Lulla-Lullaby
Lu-lulla-Lullaby
Lu-lulla-Lullaby

You say, “baby, turn the light out”
But I can see there’s some 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
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

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 and
Lullaby, lullaby

Baby, turn the light out
You said, “baby, turn the light out”
Baby, turn the light out
You said, “baby, turn the light out”
