Heartbreak lullaby...
In the still of the night,
I can almost feel you lying next to me,
Like it used to be,
And its hard to let go,
When there's always something there reminding me,
How things could be,
I've tried to get you off my mind,
I've tried to play my part,
But every time I close my eyes,
You're still inside my heart,

Why can't I laugh?
Why must I cry?
Every time we say good-bye,
Why does it rain,
Here in my heart,
Everyday that we're apart,
Why can't it be,
Just you and me,
What will it take to make you see,
These are the words,
To my heartbreak lullaby,

Like the stars in the sky,
You still keep on shining down you're light on me,
But out of reach,
And I know that in time,
You will come back to your senses,
See the signs,
And change your mind,
I try to look the other way,
And keep my heart on hold,
But every time I'm close to you,
I lose my self-control,

Why can't I laugh?
Why must I cry?
Every time we say good-bye,
Why does it rain,
Here in my heart,
Everyday that we're apart,
Why can't it be,
Just you and me,
What will it take to make you see,
These are the words,
To my heartbreak lullaby,

Why can't I laugh?
Why must I cry?
Give me just one good reason why..
Why does it rain
Here in my heart,
Everyday that we're apart,
Why can't it be,
Just you and me,
What will it take to make you see,
These are the words,
To my heartbreak lullaby

Why can't I laugh?
Why must I cry?
Every time we say good-bye,
Why does it rain,
Here in my heart,
Everyday that we're apart,
Why can't it be,
Just you and me,
What will it take to make you see,
These are the words,
To my heartbreak lullaby,

These are the words
To my heartbreak lullaby

Song facts

Heartbreak Lullaby was A-Teens' second and final single from the album New Arrival, released for The Princess Diaries movie soundtrack in Europe and Asia. The song was written by Jan Kask, Peter Mansson and Cathy Dennis.

The single had minor exposure due to big competition on the winter releases by many artists.

"...To The Music" was originally planned as the fourth single from the album, but Disney wanted the A-Teens to participate on the soundtrack for the movie The Princess Diaries; the movie was already out in the US and Latin America and for that reason, the single was only released in Europe and Asia.

The song reached number-six on the Swedish charts and seventy-seven on the German charts in December 2001.

The single release had "I Wish It Could Be X-Mas Everyday" added and it was later included on a Disney Compilation of Christmas Songs for the American market.

By public demand, the song was released on radio and TV in Mexico in January 2002 to promote the album "Teen Spirit - New Version" but failed to get the public's attention peaking only at fifty-eight on the Airplay Chart.

For the radio promotion and the video, the "Ray Hedges 7" Mix" of the track was used instead of the main version of the song. The "ballad version" of the album was included on the "Greatest Hits" and "New Arrival" albums.
