Lullaby part 2 lyrics

We've got a number of requests on the lyrics, like what's a madrigal? So, here's a few lines about this: A madrigal is "a polyphonic vocal setting, usually unaccompanied, of various kinds of verse that was extremely popular from the early 16th century to the middle of the 17th century, particularly in Italy. By the middle of the 16th century, the genre was used as fertile ground for musical experimentation."

So, after clearing that out :-), here goes for your reading pleasure:

Lullaby for heroes

Human failure, broken harmonies, words of wisdom from the giant that never sleeps. The distant callers awakening the sleep, it’s been a wild time and nothing is no longer free. I remember the words you once spoke: “Was it real love? I’m drifting on a river of hope”.

A distant journey has begun; fallen angels sing a song - a lullaby for heroes. A long-lost childhood melody, almost madrigal it seems - a lullaby for heroes.

I feel like I’m drifting away (it’s okay now, fall asleep)
Who’s calling? I’ve heard that tune before (a long-lost childhood melody)

Precious little dreamer coming in through the light, driven by emotions amused by the grace of life.
I ran out of words now, maybe I’ve got nothing to say? Does it really matter? It’s poetry anyway.

I can hear the sirens calling. Anyway, I’m not surprised…

A distant journey has begun…
