  • Lyrics
  • This tender ballad was written for her son, Wyatt, whom Crow adopted in 2007. Said Crow: "The best thing I can do for my son is to raise him with love. I want him to grow up in a loving environment and go be who he wants to be. You always want to protect your children. But you have to let go one day and hope they'll succeed and remember their upbringing."
  • Despite this being written for him, Crow recalled in USA Today that this was not young Wyatt's favorite track from the album: "We went out on the road when he was around 4 months old. And whenever he would get a little fussy, we would just put on 'Shine Over Babylon' and he'd go straight down." Crow then added he wasn't interested in hearing the quieter "Lullaby for Wyatt," instead "he wanted to hear something loud and boisterous!"
