Sleep Now

lyrics

Sleep now don't be afraid
I'll hold you all through the night
did you hear the news what those people have done
oh now what can it mean
on TV there's a man could you hear what he said
I hope that he does the right thing
Did you see our boys riding out to the war
ohhh how I hope they'll return
oh my child close your pretty eyes
the lights will come back on very soon
Sleep now Hold back your tears
I'll hold you all through the night
do you hear that baby crying out in the night
oh how I hope she is safe
Do you hear the shouts and the screams just outside
oh don't be frightened my dear
did you feel the windows shake, the air is getting hot
oh how I know everything will be fine
Hold my hand tight, tighter my dear
oh yes I know that it hurts
Sleep if you can don't be afraid
I will always be here
my kiss on your cheek our breath bleeds out like smoke
I fear that this is the end
