I would sing you a thousand lullabyes
if that would ease your pain
but the words I speak to you
can't calm you tonight
it was I who caused this haunted look
yet I can't make this right
I have yet to learn you enough
to know how to right my wrongs
times like this I grow fearful
wondering if you'll give up the fight
decide that I'll never learn well enough
to stop keeping you awake late at night
