Joyner Lucas - Lullaby Lyrics




I wonder if you often think about what you became
Do you ever wonder if you ever truly changed?
Cause honestly I'm lost and I don't know who to blame
I need some help cause I don't know what else to soothe the pain
I watch you raise me as a baby so over protective
Smiling at me, blowing kisses while you hold me restless
When you told me that you loved me I can tell you meant it
And it never took for you to try to ever show your efforts
But we was connected through the heavens though I felt your soul
And that alone is just a feeling some will never know
I bump my head and you consoled me as you held me close
And I wonder where went wrong but I guess I'll never know
Cause ever since I grown I felt like you been kind of giving up
And it seems like everything I do is just not good enough
Shit, we don't have the type of bond we used to have before
And I ain't mad at all I just wonder if you recall the day that I was born, when you used to sing to me like

La la la la la la la la
(You used to sing to me like)
La la la la la la la la la
(You used to sing to me)
La la la la la la la la
(Yeah, you used to sing to me like)
La la la la la la la la

I wonder if you often think about what you became
And do you ever wonder if you ever truly changed?
Cause honestly I'm lost and I don't know who to blame
Nigga I need some help, cause I don't know what else to soothe the pain
My father died when I was five and I ain't cry at all
I never knew him he just disappeared and I'm not sure if he knew I would grow up to be ruthless, I don't hide my flaws
A young woman with a body and a mind like yours, cause we a lot alike
I mean that's prolly' why I felt connected
And when we met I was so innocent but slowly tempted
When you told me that you loved me boy I know you meant it
You sucked the soul out of my body with your own intentions
Now I'm stuck inside a life of prostitution, no discretion
And all you do is beat my ass and leave me slowly breathless
But we don't have the type of bond we used to have before
And I ain't mad at all, I just wonder if you recall when I laid in your arms and you used to sing to me like

La la la la la la la la
(You used to sing to me like)
La la la la la la la la la
(You used to sing to me)
La la la la la la la la
(Yeah, you used to sing to me like)
La la la la la la la la

I wonder if you often think about what I became
And do you ever wonder if I ever truly changed?
Cause honestly I'm lost and I don't know who to blame
Listen, I need some help cause I don't know what else to soothe the pain
I used to watch movies about you a whole lot before
I read about you back in school when I was kind of bored
Now I'm ashamed and embarrassed I truly got involved
Cause you gave me a feeling some shit that I never felt before
And I ain't trying to make excuses but inside I'm torn
And you was there for me at times I couldn't find the lord
And all I had to do was inject you and lock the doors
So I can feel some type of peace while I dreamed and go watch the stars
And that alone is just a feeling some will never know
But now I'm rotting, it's not the same as I felt before
We don't have the type of bond we used to have before
But I ain't mad at all I just wonder if you recall sticking you in my arms when you used to sing to me like

La la la la la la la la
(You used to sing to me like)
La la la la la la la la la
(You used to sing to me)
La la la la la la la la
(Yeah, you used to sing to me like)
La la la la la la la la

  8. Don David

    OK for the people who didn't get the song

  19. Motor City

    Imagine hitting the dislike button here... fucken swines

  20. Cobalt gaming and friends

    Swear down. Been listening to this song since the album dropped. Not bored of any of Joyner’s music. He’s a god and deserves way more credit than he’s got. He won’t see this comment but keep going with making your insane music 🙏🏽👍🏽👌🏽

  21. 1SparkyBoi

    I feel like this song is about music. Like he’s personified music and it’s what he’s talking to.

    Oliver Reyes

    On the 8th track of the album, the song follows a girl’s perspective as she reflects on her comfort-seeking behavior, and how these relationships evolved as they grew and soured.

    Each of the three verses details a relationship in her life – her relationship with her mother, her boyfriend-turned-pimp, and with heroin injections.

  22. Johnny Simmons Jr

    This need a video ASAP

  23. WNW BARLOS

    Best song on the album?

    Johnny Simmons Jr

    It's that beat

    gbar796

    @Johnny Simmons Jr not only, the writing is super dope , how he connected all 3 stories is just insane to me

  24. JOHN GR

    so in this song the verses represent people

    Johnny Simmons Jr

    Seems like it represents one person. 1- Girl who went from being loved by her mom then pushed away, so 2- she turned cold and met a guy who she fell in love with. Then he pimped her out to be a prostitute, so when that went bad 3- she turned to drugs for that love and even that went south. Just my opinion

  25. TJ MOTO

    I'M NOT CRYING! MY EYES ARE JUST SWEATING.

  26. Robert Pirrone

    Hands down my favorite song in the album. so underrated

  27. AsadFreemanVEVO

    How did 113 people ALL accidentally press the dislike button?

  28. Jose Ventura

    I never met him, nor will I ever. But Joyner Lucas, you actually saved my life, from I'm sorry to this. From losing my family to losing my girlfriend. Your music is keeping me from giving up, and I thank you.

    [Verse 1]
    I wonder if you often think about what you became
    Or do you ever wonder if you ever truly changed?
    Cause honestly I'm lost and I don't know who to blame

    [Verse 2]
    I wonder if you often think about what you became

  59. Life of Gibbo

    M A G I C

  60. Adawgua

    1st verse - A boy (maybe Joyner) is talking to his mom about how she raised him and how it impacted himself now being an adult, and now that shes older he is worried about her health
    2nd verse - The mother is now talking to the father about how she first connected with him, but only to see that he fucked up her life and left her in an abusive relationship and on the streets to make money
    3rd verse - The mother is now talking to the heroine that she now takes, the heroine helps her escape from her reality but isn't there for her in a positive way
    He starts each verse with the same/similar lines about asking who they should blame for their current situations, but then finishes each verse by forgiving the person/thing they are talking to and reminiscing on the good times. I think this comes to a conclusion that the person talking realizes that it is their own responsibility for the actions they take.
    This is just my opinion of the song, what do you guys think?

  61. Ethan Garcia

    Joyner deserves 60 million suns not a racist whiny guy who says hard Rs
