Sleep Well

My bed is cold without you here beside me
Life is old…pain is withering away
My blankets are warm…around me…
Strife will cease in no time…but not today

So sleep well, my darling angel…
Sleep without a sound
So sleep well, my darling angel…
I’ll take you out of the chilly cell of your mind

So sleep near me for a minute or two 
Life is almost over…you’re sane and I am too 
My pillows are not there on my bed 
Strife will cease…if only you’d wait…I hope you knew 
That I loved you for so long… 
But it’s not the right time to say it 
You wouldn’t believe it 
But, I really wanted to show you… 
That you are beautiful inside and out 
So sleep well, my darling angel
Sleep well; lay your head on my shoulder 
Maybe it will help…maybe it’ll not, but oh well… 

So sleep well, my darling angel…
Sleep without a sound
So sleep well, my darling angel…
I’ll take you out of the chilly cell of your mind

Dream with me…for a time…
Wipe away our past grime
I’m still waiting for your love to touch my soul
And yet I cry…for your love to make me feel whole
I can’t go to sleep unless you’re here…
But I shall not have fear
Plant a good thought in my head
Burn away my dread
I’ve seen you once upon a time
I’ve never noticed you, dancing in a flick of a dime
Wake me up from my nightmare…
Mirror my pain…if you’d dare…

So sleep well, my darling angel…
Sleep without a sound
So sleep well, my darling angel…
I’ll take you out of the chilly cell of your mind

My heart is cold without you here hanging around me
Life is full of sorrow…pain increases slowly
My heart is beating…and I could hear it in my head…beating profoundly
Maybe…strife will stop sooner than you think…we’ll be free

Just believe…sleep well…
Just close your eyes…I know you’re tired…
Don’t grieve…sleep well…
