I listened to the whine for way too long
Time for me to hear a different song
I waited overtime for things to turn around
Tired of waiting for it all to hit the ground

You said you knew all about it
What was right and what was wrong
You pulled the wool over the eyes of everyone
Maybe I was weak when I should've been strong

Cry, baby, cry
Tell me 'bout your lonesome lullaby
Cry, baby, cry
Tell me 'bout your lonesome lullaby

You took me by surprise and like a shot in the dark, shot in the dark
You showed yourself in your truest light, truest light
You saved yourself by saving nobody else
You must have cringed when you heard them tell

Cry, baby, cry
Tell me 'bout your lonesome lullaby
Cry, baby, cry
Tell me 'bout your lonesome lullaby

You took the wrong turn at the city of dreams, city of dreams
You ended up back where you came from it seems, came from it seems
Back there to where there's nothing else to do
Back there where you can sit and think of only you

Cry, baby, cry
Tell me 'bout your lonesome lullaby
Cry, baby, cry
Tell me 'bout your lonesome lullaby

Cry
Tell me 'bout your lonesome lullaby
Cry
Tell me 'bout your lonesome lullaby

Your lonesome lullaby
