Anna Nalick - Lullaby Singer Lyrics




You say, "Baby, turn the light out"
But I can see there's something crying in your smile now
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 ain'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 papercuts 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 I'll try and try and
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
And I'm eyes wide open brighter than the candles
On a cake you wasted wishes on when you were okay

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 I'll try and try and
Lullaby, lullaby
Lullaby, lullaby

Lulla, lullaby
Lulla, lullaby
Lullalullaby, lullalullaby
Lulla, lullaby
Lulla, lullaby

Baby, turn the light out
There's something crying in your smile now
You used to be the glitter in the dirt
And now you say it's just you feel a little dusty

But 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 I'll try and try and
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 I'll try
Lullaby, lullaby
Lullaby, lullaby

Baby, turn the light out
Baby, turn the light out
Baby, turn the light out
You say, "Baby, turn the light out"

  2. Cynthia Thornton

    I definitely prefer this to the album version. "Eyes wide open like the candles on the cake you wasted wishes on when you were okay" is my second favorite line to a song ever!

  3. GQchris75

    She's an amazing talent, and drop dead beautiful to boot. What a combo.

    Marcela Geiger

    And down to Earth; and underrated...

  4. Matthew Hewitt

    I love You!!!

    Marcela Geiger

    Maybe you should ask her out...

  5. Kaiyrain Martinez

    I wish this was on iTunes. :'( I love this song!

    Anna Benson

    It's now on Spotify in her new album

  6. Rad MillerJr.

    What a voice, what a looker, what a writer. "Breathe" is one of my all-time classics. the Radman

    Marcela Geiger

    And so underrated.

  7. Yera Ende

    Time for a title change, though. :)

  8. Pretty Little Minions

    Anna Nalick, Andrew Belle, and Alison Krauss <3. Amazing singers, but underappreciated :(

  9. KimberlyAnn Rose

    anna was back and now she's gone again! where did she go? :(

  10. Mush Musique

    Sometimes, you're on youtube and don't know what to do and suddenly, you click on this video and feel good. Thanks !

  11. Kristen Elizabeth

    Her voice is so unique! I love it

  12. Pauline D

    Anna j'admire ton talent à chacune de tes chansons. T'es une magnifique chanteuse et les textes sont sublimes. Tout ce qu'il faut dans la voix, tellement d'émotion... ♥

    Marcela Geiger

    Does she know French?

  13. shakenama

    It rare to find artists who aren't prefabricated studio cookie cutters who sing writers songs. Anna is a rare gem. An amazing artist writing deep lyrical songs with meaning. I just hope she can do this on her own without Sony.

  14. Adellina Andrew

    can't stop myself from clicking the 'replay' button.. ^^

  15. EiraGrey

    Anyone know where/how I can download this and Words?

  16. SupernovaReigns

    Just came across this girl tonight via Pandora...started with "Breath" and working my way up! Such range. Her music is beautiful! ( :

  17. DavidZorkboy

    @CloudyRaniy hopefully really soon!!!

  18. CloudyRaniy

  19. sierra austin

    Honey I'll be your lullaby singer -3 7/19/10

  20. sierra austin

    Two people still haven't found the words to say

  21. Taneth Swinburne

    this woman is a genius

  22. KimberlyAnn Rose

    @ideservethemelody her new one was to make up for lost time...it's more of an acoustic album to hold us over until the next one...in her words "a little old, a little borrowed, a little blue" but the next one will be more produced and should be coming out next year...that one will have this song, words, break me open, etc.

  23. Elise Moser

    Why didn't this song make it onto her new album? I'm disappointed...

  24. DavidZorkboy

    Anna Nalick is Perfection!

  25. jynxlinks

    how does someone dislike this song? I bet they're scared of truths... :P

  26. Smush21

    CHILLS!
