Janet Devlin - Whisky Lullabies Lyrics from The Janet Devlin Fan Club's blog

When I was a child

they'd ask me where it hurt

and wipe the tears from my eyes


Sure embraces,

gentle forehead kisses

making sure that I was alright


As I grew older and the nights grew shorter

I no longer cared where it hurt


All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies

there to cradle me to sleep

All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies

there to cradle me to sleep


Scars they heal in time

the raw wounds on my mind

they aren't so easily fixed


You can't mend what isn't broken

Kind words are rarely spoken

in time I will learn this


But I grow older

and the nights grow shorter

drowning as I sink or swim


All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies

there to cradle me to sleep

All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies

there to cradle me to sleep


Sticks and stones they break me to the bone

Words they cut they will always hurt me


Please be my saving Grace

Please be my saving Grace


How to answer all my prayers


Please be my saving Grace


All I hear is, Whisky Lullabies

there to cradle me to sleep

and all I hear is, Whisky Lullabies

there to cradle me to sleep


Sticks and stones they break me to the bone

Words they cut, they will always hurt me

Sticks and stones they break me to the bone

Words they cut, they will always hurt me
