Lullaby
Shawn Mullins Lyrics


She grew up with the children of the stars
In the Hollywood hills and the boulevard
Her parents threw big parties, everyone was there
They hung out with folks like
Dennis Hopper and Bob Seeger and Sonny and Cher

She feels safe now, in this bar on Fairfax
And from the stage I can tell that
She can't let go and she can't relax
And just before she hangs her head to cry
I sing to her a lullaby

I sing, everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Rockabye

She still lives with her mom outside the city
Down that street about a half a mile
And all her friends tell her
She's so pretty
But she'd be a whole lot prettier
If she smiled once in a while
'Cause even her smile looks like a frown
She's seen her share of devils in this angel town

But, everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye (dry your tired eyes)
Everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Rockabye

Ooh, ooh, ahh

I told her I ain't so sure about this place
It's hard to play a gig in this town and keep a straight face
Seems like everybody's got a plan
It's kind of like Nashville with a tan

But Everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye

Everything's gonna be all right (I'll be your every)
Rockabye, rockabye (dry your tired eyes)
Everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Everything's gonna be all right (I'll be your every)
Rockabye, rockabye (dry your tired eyes)
Everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye, rockabye, bye, bye (ahh)
Bye, bye

After I was diagnosed with cancer, I started chemo immediately. This was 1998 and I was 13. This was the song playing on the radio when my mom and I left the hospital after the first day. I will never forget listening to it while driving (or crawling) down the 405 freeway in Santa Monica. It is truly a "period piece" for me, despite this being a one-hit wonder.

As a teen I spent years in a fairly traumatizing Psychiatric group home, my parents gave me up. My roommate used to sing this to me when I was scared and we were falling asleep and it still makes me loved when I hear it 20 years later

I fell in love with this song when it came out. The nostalgia makes me wanna cry. Brings back so many memories from a time when things were so simple.
