Lullaby

Album: Old Ideas (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This becalmed meditation of surrender is built around a simple guitar arpeggio and a lonely harmonica. While the recording of Old Ideas began in earnest in January 2011, an early version of "Lullaby" was demoed in 2007, and the song was performed live during Cohen's 2008-10 world tour.
