We Needed A Lullabye

1960's - Lyrics to a song

We used to sing our lullabyes
To each other all night
We used to do a lot of things
Things we thought were right

But, now, the nights are longer
The days go by so fast
The love we thought was stronger
Lives only in the past

In the back of my mind, love
Is the only place you'll stay
In the shadows of my mind
All the rest has gone away

And as I sit and wonder
"Bout the things we used to do
I don't know what went wrong, dear
But this lullabye's for you
And the shadows of my mind.
