Mystery of The Night

Before I lay me down to sleep
I like to count the stars
Rather then count the sheep

The sky is pitchy black 
All stars are shinning bright
I like to look at them
To look at them all night

The beauty of the sky
The mystery of the dark
The moon that looks at me
And smiling all the night

I see a shooting star
I quickly make my wish
I wish for you to come
And give me simple kiss

The sky is pitchy black
And stars are shinning more
I think of you all night
It’s you I’m waiting for
