Broken Lullabies

You used to sing to me

Like none before

Now you don’t know

The words anymore

 

It’s a broken lullaby

…a broken lullaby

 

Tell me where did we go wrong?

Should we be staying strong

And holding?

… or just let go?

 

And what used to be my favourite song

What made our two hearts

Beat as one

Is dying right before my eyes

 

Like broken lullabies

… broken lullabies

 

Tell me where did we go wrong?

From this nightmare –

Should we wake up

… or just dream on?

 

And our hearts’ rhythms

Once united and strong

Haven gotten weak and slow

And sound all wrong

 

Like broken lullabies

… broken lullabies

 

Tell me where did we go wrong?

Is there any sense in staying strong?

…in staying strong

 

Right here we stand knowing that soon

We’ll have to sing to a different tune

…a different tune
