Days feel hard earned
Night grows longer
Summer says it's goodbyes
And darkness covers
We find shelter
Our own place to hide

Oh
As the light goes out
Thoughts turn to angels
Over us
Oh
As the night comes in
Dreams start their drifting
And you hear
A lullaby
Ooooooh
A lullaby
You and I

Trees touch windows
Say their hellos
We hear this house as it settles in
Worry slips away
It don't know your name
It don't know where to find us

Oh
As the light goes out
Thoughts turn to angels
All around us
Oh
As the night comes in
Dreams start their drifting
And we hear
A lullaby
A lullaby
You and I
You and I

    A wife's husband passes away, she is left alone in her house with her child,... However worry cannot find them, because the man, has returned to take away all worry, and the angels sing.

    i am now listening to this song for the first time, it reminds me, of how life is beautiful, no matter what you are going thru, and that maybe a bestfriend or significant other is your lullaby, i comforting thing when all hope is lost and everyything gets dark. it reminds me of my best friend hazel, she is such a beautiful soul. she is now going thru some rough things, but i am always here. she is one of the most unique girls i know. i dont know how to describe our friendship, maybe more of a sistership. it also reminds me of my cousin derek who passed away.
