lyrics

Sing me to sleep
This day’s been such a chore
We wore each other out
Then we wore each other more

We lit the fire of our quiet revolution
This earth has granted us total absolution

So sing me to sleep
This day has been so long
Just lay here next to me
And you can do no wrong

The flame may soften but its strength is ever-growing
And when we wake assured the embers will be glowing

So sing me to sleep
This day has gone to bed
But my dreams will not see me
Until you’ve filled my head

With waves so gentle their vibrations carry me ‘til morning
That sweet breath settles in and slumber enters without warning

You can drop your anchor for the night, this water’s safe and sound
Just give me a lullaby in which to dreamily swim around

I feel the most at home when
The night slowly sneaks in
And on my eyelids sleep begins to play

Be it original or cover
I never want another
Cradling my soul as I drift away

So sing me to sleep
This day’s not over yet
And for our unknowing followers
Give them one they won’t forget

Teach them all the words of this new hymn that we have written
The trick is finding someone else’s heart for them to fit in

But we’ll continue our crusade until the sun ceases to rise
‘Til every tear on earth is simply joy caught in the eyes

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
Sing me....
