"Lullaby" as written by and David Shannon Bazan....
The sun shines
And leaves blow
And my hope like autumn is turning brown
I know it seems like I am always falling down
But it does not matter to me
Although it seems like it should
It's because I know I am understood when I hear Him say

Rest in me little David
And dry all your tears
You can lay down your armor
And have no fear
'Cause I'm always here
When you're tired of running
I'm all the strength that you need

It's up hill both ways
Tomorrow I swear I won't act this way
I know it seems like that's what I always say

But it does not matter to me
Although it seems like it should
It's because I know I am understood
When I hear Him say

Rest in my little David
And dry all your tears
You can lay down your armor
And have no fear
'Cause I'm always here
When you're tired of running
I'm all the strength that you need

You know I want to be like Jesus
But it seems so very far away
When will I learn to obey

    General CommentThese lyrics work well even without music. I love "my hope like autumn is turning brown" because I know exactly what that feels like.

    General Commentthis song gives me so much comfort... "you can lay down your armor and have no fear, i am always here when you're tired of running." sometimes, I just have to remember to stop.

    General Commentthis is one damn good song. it is by far my favorite one by them. its so simple, yet complex in its own way. you can tell his emotion in the song, and the way he feels.

    gosh, its so good.

    "its uphill, both ways. tomorrow i swear i wont act this way." perfect.

    General CommentHey everyone look at my comments under "Mind Of her Own" not "A Mind of her Own". It explains what the whole "Winners Never Quit" CD is about. The Whole cd is a story where each song explains a part of the story. It is christian. I promise. The "Whole" ep does the same thing in that it tells a story of David Bazan's Life and addiction to drugs but repents and is forgiven!!

    General Commentthis is probably my favorite pedro song. its so calm and mellow and the lyrics really would work as an actual lullaby. the lyrics "im always here when your tired of running, im all the strength that u need" just make me feel happier.
