I remember tears streamin' down your face
When I said I'd never let you go,
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said 'don't leave me here alone'
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight


Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Don't you dare look out your window
Darlin' everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music's gone
Gone--


Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound


Ooh, ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Ooh, ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Just close your eyes
You'll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Oohhh.

    It's about finding hope on the darkest of times. Just like in the hunger games, like during the hunger games (prim is hoping katniss will be alright) or during the uprising/war.

    Well first of all its about the hunger games!! But i think the real meaning is about trust, finding light in places without hope, finding something to live for. Staying strong when there is no sight of hope. Even more, protecting yourself and the one you love

    It means that everything is gonna be ok, as long as you remember that i'm here and despite the bad things that happen, you're gonna be safe and sound:).

    This means how wars can't hurt you and you'll be alright, it means that you're not going to be left alone. It also means it can't destroy your hope.
