"Lullaby" as written by and Neil Mullane Finn....
Goodnight bless you
Let angels possess you
You'll make dreams of another life
Don't think it's too much
To close eyes and leave us
In strange places we'll come undone

And the building blocks sometimes have to crash
Not built to last like a mother's love

Real life it's all true
You know how i'll miss you
In quiet places I'll come undone

The building blocks sometimes have to crash
Not built to last like a mother's love
Sleep comes when all is laid to rest
That's where you'll find what you're looking for

Strange feelings you can't explain
Wild forces you can't contain

And the building blocks sometimes have to crash
Not built to last like your mother's love
Peace comes when fear is laid to rest
That's when you'll find what you're looking for

    General CommentThe song is actually titled "Lullaby Requiem". I think Neil Finn wrote it as a tribute for his mother who passed before "Try Whistling This" was released.
