Gray, David - Lullaby Lyrics




Its a sad old world
That's turning tonight
As I slide through the streets
Moonlight and memory burning
And in my hand your broken dream

My watery eyes
I sing for you this lullaby
Let the shadow fall from your window
Let the morning light fill your head
Stand up and let the wild wind blow
Right into your soul till the night is dead

All these useless emotions
Churning round
As I search these bare walls for a clue
And all the time
The truth is flashing in my mind
That when a heart gets broken
There's nothing you can do

My watery eyes
I sing for you this lullaby
Let the shadow fall from your window
Let the morning light fill your head
Stand up and let the wild wind blow
Right into your soul till the night is dead

And I'm packing my belongings
Hey I'll be gone before the noon arrives
Cos I know there's no use pretending
Soon it'll all be alright

But hey
Let the shadow fall from your window
Let the morning light fill your head
Stand up and let the wild wind blow
Right into your soul till the night is dead

See the dawn break gold
When the night is dead

Hear the bells

  16. Miranda Bailey

    David has sung through my tears, through my fears, and through some of the happiest moments of my life. He's made me think about things in a new light, and he's sung the many anthems of the moments that haunt me, for good and bad. A true star in the sky and I cannot thank him enough for all he has given with every breath of his songs. This song is one of my favorites of his.

  41. Google Reviewer

    Amazing video, tells such a strong story.

  42. Damien Riley

    Been humming this tune in my head for a week. This is the first time I saw the video (movie). This is one of the most powerful vignette videos I've ever seen. David Gray is a genius songwriter and this filmmaker did a stellar job.

    Julianna Riley

    Hi daddy i was thinking of  this too!!

    Arkapravo Das

    Damien Riley Your interaction with your daughter here made me well up. What a beautiful record, this. Artistes like David re-affirm one's faith in music, you know what I mean, especially if you're a working musician.

  48. william mcmonagle

    beautiful song,and a very sad evocative message,

  49. aircanuck

    This video has 5000 views? That's it? This is far superior to the crap that's currently being rammed down our throats. 

    coderset

    I've lost all hope in this planet, but these 5000 views give me that little bit of hope...

  50. Doritji

    David Gray has the most underrated music video repertoire out there

  51. Todd Hooper

    Great perspective on what happens at the "other end" of all the glitz and glamour that so many seem to want so badly.

  52. Cindy Coy

    Wow...don't know what else to say.
