  • You lie silent there before me
    Your tears they mean nothing to me
    The wind howling at the window
    The love you never gave I give to you
    Really don't deserve it
    But now there's nothing you can do
    So, sleep in your only memory
    Of me, my dearest mother

    Chorus:
    Here's a lullaby to close your eyes (good-bye)
    It was always you that I despised
    I don't feel enough for you to cry (oh well)
    Here's a lullaby to close your eyes
    Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye, good-bye

    So insignificant sleeping dormant deep inside of me
    Are you hiding away, lost under the sewers?
    Maybe flying high in the clouds?
    Perhaps you're happy without me
    So many seeds have been sown in the field
    And who could sprout up so blessedly, If I had died
    I would have never felt sad at all
    You will not hear me say "I'm sorry"
    Where is the light? Wonder if it's weeping somewhere...

  • Kelly from Cotswolds, UkThis song is from Silent Hill 4, the room. The song is from Walter's perspective (the main villain in the game), who never knew his mother or father because they abandoned him. He got sent to an orphanage where he was sexually abused and learnt more about the Silent Hill cult. During the game we find out that he views apartment 302 as his mum (the apartment where he was abandoned, and where our main protaganist lives now) and is trying to complete the 21 Sacraments so that he can live with his 'mum' (the apartment) forever.
  • Emily from Los Angeles, CaActually, this song is not about a daughter singing to her mother. Relating to the Silent Hill series, and specifically Silent Hill 4: The Room, this song is about Walter Sullivan, a character from the game. Akira Yamaoka composed the music, and the singing was done by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.
