lyrics

Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night

I remember how you sang
Lullabies in the night
I remember how you read to me
By the hall's soothing light

I was a child and I knew
I was safe in your arms
You would save me from the darkness
You would keep me from harm

If I only knew
There's only so much a mother can do

I remember how we fought
And the cruel things we said
I remember how I left home
Needing freedom or death

I was a child and I knew
I wasn't safe in your arms
I felt that you had somehow betrayed me
You couldn't keep me from harm

If I only knew
There's only so much a mother can do

2 a.m. the phone rings
And it's your voice on the line
You tell me there was an accident
And you were lucky this time

It's then I realized how much I love you
And how important you are
You haven't failed me, you gave me your strength
You are my guiding star

But if you only knew
There's only so much a daughter can do

Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
