Can you tell me how do lullabies help babies sleep?

In brief: I think in my case,

It soothes my children so that they relax enough for their brain waves to start slowing down.
When my daughter can't sleep she asks me to sing her to sleep. She now associates sleep with these songs and often after struggling to fall asleep- she will nod off in seconds to minutes once i begin gently singing lullabies.
