You lay me down
On my bed
You lay your hands
On my head

So I was safe
So I was warm
My home is when
I’m in your arms

I sleep all day
Like wind in the skies
Nothing takes
The sleep from my eyes

You kept watch
When I could not
When I started to move like
The hands of the clock

On gentle words
All hope relies
But nothing takes
The sleep from my eyes

You make me forget
My million goodbyes
But nothing takes
The sleep from my eyes

Blessings work
Because they have to
Otherwise my love
What what what what
Would we do
