  • I know the feeling
    Of finding yourself stuck out on the ledge
    And there ain't no healing
    From cuttin' yourself with the jagged edge
    I'm tellin' you that it's never that bad
    And take it from someone who's been where your at
    You're laid out on the floor and you're not sure
    You can take this anymore

    So just give it one more try
    With a lullaby
    And turn this up on the radio
    If you can hear me now
    I'm reachin' out to let you know
    That you're not alone

    And you can't tell, I'm scared as hell
    'Cause I can't get you on the telephone
    So just close your eyes
    Well honey here comes a lullaby
    Your very own lullaby
    Please let me take you
    Out of the darkness and into the light
    'Cause I have faith in you
    That you're gonna make it through another night
    Stop thinkin' about the easy way out
    There's no need to go and blow the candle out
    Because you're not done, you're far too young
    And the best is yet to come

    So just give it one more try
    With a lullaby
    And turn this up on the radio
    If you can hear me now
    I'm reachin' out to let you know
    That you're not alone

    And you can't tell, I'm scared as hell
    'Cause I can't get you on the telephone
    So just close your eyes
    Well honey here comes a lullaby
    Your very own lullaby

    Well everybody's hit the bottom
    And everybody's been forgotten
    Well everybody's tired of being alone
    Yeah everybody's been abandoned
    And left a little empty handed
    So if you're out there barely hangin', on

    Just give it one more try
    With a lullaby
    And turn this up on the radio
    If you can hear me now
    I'm reachin' out to let you know
    That you're not alone

    And you can't tell, I'm scared as hell
    'Cause I can't get you on the telephone
    So just close your eyes
    Well honey here comes a lullaby
    Your very own lullaby
    Well honey here comes a lullaby
    Your very own lullaby Writer/s: CHAD KROEGER, CHRISTOPHER G TOMPKINS, CRAIG WEISMAN, RODNEY CLAWSON, RODNEY DALE CLAWSON

  • Belinda Colon from New JerseyThis song saved my life. It made me believe that there was something better out there for me. I was in an abusive relationship as a teen well into my twenties and it got me through some really troubling times as well as thoughts. Thank you for those amazing lyrics! I wouldn’t be 33 and happily married with wonderful children if it wasn’t for this song! Keep making inspirational music!!!!
  • Jayden from Utah thats sad that the mom died after giving birth to her baby boy
  • Patfenis from Birmingham, West MidlandsVery underrated song

    Powerful lyrics and motivating - so surprised this didn't do well in the UK
  • Lace from Columbia Ct I watched the fatel motorcycle accident of fiance. I wrote yall awhile back w pics. Hope you read it.
  • John And Taylor Morgan from TexasWe lost my dad to suicide nov6 2020 I never really paid attention to the words until today it’s touches home for me and my bother we love you very much
  • Lila from Stevensville, MtThis song makes me wanna cry cuz I know what it's like to lose the most important one in your life and living with the fact that you think it's your fault and its not.
  • Michealawandler from Stevi, MtI love this song SO MUCH! The video is to sad. Made me cry! ;(
  • Reya from Reynoldsburg, OhI looked this up because a friend they love this song. I listened to it, and thought of someone who is extremely depressed, and has suicidal thoughts. And of their friend trying desperately to save them. I really like this song, even though I'm not a huge fan of Nickelback.
  • Hannah from Gratz, PaI get strong anti-suicide vibes from this song. "If you can't tell, I'm scared as hell 'Cause I can't get you on the telephone." It makes me think of someone rushing to get to the home of their friend, because they're worried that they might kill themselves. "You're gonna make it through another night." Again, talking about suicide....
    "Stop thinking about the easy way out There's no need to go and blow the candle out, because you're not done, you're far to young and the best is yet to come." This for me, is one of the most beautiful bit of lyrics in this song. It's a beautiful metaphor and a reminder that life goes on.
    I've been depressed for awhile, I've attempted suicide. Sometimes I play this song just to hear the reassurance that it gets better. It may be a long time in the future,
    and even though life sucks now, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
