"Lonely Lullaby" as written by and Adam R. Young....
Symphony of silver tears,
Sing to me and sooth the ring in my ears,
Overcast these gloomy nights wear on,
But I'm holding fast because it's darkest just before the dawn.

I sang my princess fast asleep,
'Cause she was my dream come true,
Oh Annmarie, believe me, I loved you.

But now those lonely lullabies,
Just dampen my tired eyes,
Because I can't forget you.
Because I can't forget you.

I'll dissolve when the rain pours in,
When the nightmares take me,
I will scream with the howling wind,
'Cause it's a bitter world and I'd rather dream.

Dizzy love turned a star lily pink,
And hung above our lids too flushed to blink,
But icy blue froze the fairytale cold,
Though I treasured you and you sparkled with someone to hold.

I sang my princess fast asleep,
'Cause she was my dream come true,
Oh Annmarie, believe me, I loved you.

But now those lonely lullabies,
Just dampen my tired eyes,
Because I can't forget you.
Because I can't forget you.

I'll dissolve when the rain pours in,
When the nightmares take me,
I will scream with the howling wind,
'Cause it's a bitter world and I'd rather dream.

I'll dissolve when the rain pours in,
When the nightmares take me,
I will scream with the howling wind,
'Cause it's a bitter world and I'd rather dream.
And I'd rather dream.

Annmarie, I'll never forget you.
Annmarie, I'll never forget you.
Annmarie, remember me?
I'll never forget you.
Annmarie, remember me?
I'll never forget you.
Annmarie, remember me?
I'll never forget you.

    General CommentI saw Adam sing this IN CONCERT and he was so sad-sounding. I literally wanted to get up on stage and give him a hug. He just sounded so vulnerable, and...and human. We don't really think of our idols as human, until we hear things like this. Amazing he could put his feelings into something as beautiful as this.

    General CommentI heard Ann Marie had died in a car crash. I feel sooo bad for Adam. I can't imagine what it would be like to hear that news and then live through it. He wrote such a beautiful song for her though. Love this song even though it makes me sad.

    General CommentIt is a common misconception that the famous AnnMarie, mentioned in this song and hinted at in many others, died in a car crash. That was a different girlfriend of Adam's, and the identity of this girlfriend is still unknown to this day. AnnMarie did, however, go to college in California, thus ending the relationship.

    Adam tells various stories, after publishing this song, about singing AnnMarie to sleep over the phone when he was on tour in faraway places. He said that her favorite flower is the Stargazer Lily. "Dizzy love turns the star lilies pink."

    He was just thinking about her, that's all. After this song came out, their relationship disputably began to resurface because she was back from college, but that's all unconfirmed.
