Music Monday – Pill or a Lullaby by Lola Young

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! For this week’s song, I have chosen Pill or a Lullaby by Lola Young.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


Pill or a Lullaby by Lola Young

Pill or a Lullaby features on Lola Young’s 2021 EP, After Midnight. It was also released as a single.

I first saw Lola Young a few months back, when she supported Dermot Kennedy on tour, and since then, I can’t stop listening to her! This song is my favourite by her.


Lyrics:

Quarter past five and I’m wondering why
I cried in front of strangers last night
I must have got home somehow
The sun kisses the sky, then my mind starts racing
Did I even love him or did I need to save him?
Fuck, it’s getting late now

Do they hate me? I don’t know
Wait, I don’t care
Did I leave the light on in the hallway?
Shoud I go check?
Am I a sinner if I don’t regret?
And if God exists, does she stress about
All the promises that the world never kept?

I’m hiding from the sunrise
‘Cause it’s 5 a.m. and I’m running from the daylight
If I befriend tomorrow, will it treat me right?
‘Cause it’s 5 a.m., I need a pill or a lullaby
Pill or a lullaby

My mouth’s dry and I’m wondering why
Don’t know my lefts from rights or how to drive
Guess I’ll get there somehow
The moon looks kinda nice, then my heart starts beating
Did I look good when I told him I was leaving?
I will never know now

Do I hate me? I don’t know
Wait, I don’t care
Did I leave the light on in the hallway?
Should I go check?
Am I a sinner if I don’t regret?
And if God exists, does she care about
All the promises that the world never kept?

I’m hiding from the sunrise
‘Cause it’s 5 a.m. and I’m running from the daylight
If I befriend tomorrow, will it treat me right?
‘Cause it’s 5 a.m., I need a pill or a lullaby
Pill or a lullaby

I’m not tired
I’m just scared to turn the lights on
I’m not tired
I’m just scared to turn the light on
I’m not tired
I’m just scared to turn the lights on
Scared to turn the lights on

Hiding from the sunrise
‘Cause it’s 5 a.m. and I’m running from the daylight
And if I befriend tomorrow, will it treat me right?
‘Cause it’s 5 a.m., I need a pill or a lullaby
Pill or a lullaby
