Nickelback – Lullaby lyrics

Well I know the feeling
Of finding yourself stuck out on the ledge
And there ain't no healing
From cutting yourself with the jagged edge

I'm telling you that
It's never that bad
Take it from someone whose been where you're at
Lay down on the floor
And your not sure
You can take this anymore

So just give it one more try
To a lullaby
And turn this up on the radio
If you can hear me now
I'm reaching out
To let you know that you're not alone
And you can't tell
I'm scared as hell
Cause I can't get you on the telephone
So just close your eyes
Well honey here comes a lullaby
Your very own lullaby


Please let me take you
Out of the darkness and into the light
Cause I have faith in you
That you're gonna make it through another night
Stop thinking about
The easy way out
There's no need to go and blow the candle out
Because you're not done
You're far too young
And the best is yet to come

So just give it one more try
To a lullaby
And turn this up on the radio
If you can hear me now
I'm reaching out
To let you know that you're not alone
And you can't tell
I'm scared as hell
Cause I can't get you on the telephone
So just close your eyes
Well honey here comes a lullaby
Your very own lullaby

Well everybody's hit the bottom
And everybody's been forgotten
When everybody's tired of being alone
Yeah everybody's been abandoned
And left a little empty handed
So if you're out there barely hanging on

Just give it one more try
To a lullaby
And turn this up on the radio
If you can hear me now
I'm reaching out
To let you know that you're not alone
And you can't tell
I'm scared as hell
Cause I can't get you on the telephone
So just close your eyes
Well honey here comes a lullaby
Your very own lullaby

Well honey here comes a lullaby
Your very own lullaby

    I have been suicidal for years, since I was nine years old. Severe depression, mental disorders, addicting to cutting and general self destruction, you name it, I have it. Then just recently, my best friend has been going through some really though times, that has changed this sweet, funny, wonderful guy who always made everyone happy, into someone who hates the world, just wants to be alone, and who has started branding himself. Burning letters into his flesh. It kills me every time I think about it. He told me the other night to "stop being so offended and needy", and that he needs his space, at least for the time being. I am able to understand where he is coming from, but I'm still upset. And hurt. I have my "playlist" that I turn on when I want to escape the world (mainly, but not completely, consisting of Red, Breaking Benjamin, and Staind). "Lullaby" is one of the songs there. Generally I hate "happy, feel good music", but this one. This one just makes me cry. Because even though these people have never and never will meet me personally, or know who I am, this is me. I have been grasping at anything that will keep me alive. I needed a lullaby.

    I've been listening to this song for a couple of weeks. And my mom says it my song. I was suicidal for 8 years and I'm 16. I have cystic fibrosis, cirrhosis of liver, cystic fibrosis related diabetes. I was ready to give up and end it all I tried everything I even drunk bleach and I'm still here I've jump off of my 2 story house and landed on top of my head and ever since I've been listening to this song and I've become a different person.

    My doctors didn't expect for me to live to be a year old without liver transplant and miconimilless 36 hours old and lost 75% of my blood and at 4 years old I started vomiting up pure blood I didn't sleep for 3 days I was in the hospital I woke up in my own pool of blood.

    (I shared this a few months ago, while I was not logged in, and so just wanted to again).

    From the point of a mother who has a teenage daughter suffering from depression, this song touches very deeply. She has contemplated suicide. She has withdrawn. She has cut her beautiful body. She is anorexic and bullemic. She breaks my heart everyday, just watching what she is doing to herself, knowing that as much as I try, I am not always reaching her. She is an amazing person, but imprisoned in a darkness she struggles with daily. Hopefully her path will brighten soon, with all the help I can manage to find for her. I am not going away baby!

    My boyfriend and I recently did some stuff that wasn't very smart. To add to it we talked about it on facebook and my sister hacked mine and read the messages. She found out what we did and told my dad. So now I'm banned from him and he was grounded because I made him skip his after school detention. School got out 12 days ago and I talked to him for the first time today about 20 minutes ago. We have been dating for 1 year 3 months and 13 days.
