  • Hush little baby don't you cry
    I said hush little baby don't you cry
    I said hush little baby don't you cry, no
    I said hush little baby don't you cry

    I'm saying hush little baby don't you cry
    Daddy ain't sure if he can raise you right
    I ain't even good with saving my money
    Why should I think I can save your life?
    And the whole family's gonna think I'm a devil, I don't wanna see my angels eyes
    I say this with one hand on my heart, guilt ain't gonna make me change my mind
    My first thoughts, were the worst thoughts, running 'round my head in circles
    The worlds gonna hate me for saying this, but patience is a virtue
    So we don't have to rush for our first youth, we can take time do rehearsals
    And I ain't acting this is personal, and I ain't doing this just to hurt you

    I should say goodbye, before I say hello
    So darling hold me, closely, tonight
    Because if you open your eyes, I'll never let you go
    Moving slowly, we'll both sleep tonight
    And we'll just be dreaming 'til you wake me up

    When I'm telling her about raving
    She's telling me about cravings
    I want her to just get the message
    I don't wanna have to be so blatant
    So I told her my life ain't balanced
    Yeah, said the time ain't right
    She said god's clock's the only one that matters
    And it's about time I tried, yeah and if I listen to my family
    Then they'll be a new addition to my family
    I can't help feeling peer pressured, everybody's looking down but they don't understand me
    And everyone's so suggestive, I'm getting mixed messages, but nobody's rang me
    Huh, I'm saying this ain't a game, but I say the wrong thing and everyone wants to hang me

    I should say goodbye, before I say hello
    So darling hold me, closely, tonight
    Because if you open your eyes, I'll never let you go
    Moving slowly, we'll both sleep tonight
    And we'll just be dreaming 'til you wake me up

    Hush little baby don't you cry
    I said hush little baby don't you cry
    I said hush little baby don't you cry, no
    I said hush little baby don't you cry

    I know I should say goodbye, before I say hello
    Darling hold me, closely, tonight
    Because if you open your eyes, I'll never let you go
    Moving slowly, we'll both sleep tonight
    And we'll just be dreaming 'til you wake me up Writer/s: JERMAINE SINCLAIRE SCOTT, EDWARD SHEERAN, THOMAS ANDREW SEARLE BARNES, PETER NORMAN CULLEN KELLEHER, BENJAMIN ALEXANDER KOHN, IAIN JAMES
