“No Lullabies” is the fifth track on Cold Holiday’s 2023 album “We Are All We Have.”

I’ve got no diamond rings or mockingbirds tonight
All we can try to do is shrink the world back down to size
if you’ve got a dream to dream, make the most of the time
Or else you’ll lay awake and realize

There is always something left to lose

Why should I tell you not to cry?
Why should you rest your head and close your eyes?
Cry if you want to cry, smile if you want to smile
I guess I’m no good at lullabies

There is always something left to lose
