play Sleep Easy

from Waiting for the Water BUY

Bedtime story is finished, lamp's burning down low
Say a quick prayer of thanks for the day And it's off to sleep we go

Blanket curled all around us,
A whisper in the night

    Sleep easy
    Sleep easy, now
    Yesterday's gone, tomorrow ain't come
    Sleep easy, now

You hear that silence?
All is still The moon shines over the trees
Cloudless sky, the stars so bright, the world for now's at peace

Cool wind blows a gentle sigh,
A whisper in the night

    Sleep easy
    Sleep easy, now
    Yesterday's gone, tomorrow ain't come
    Sleep easy, now

Last chapter's been written, time will come for goodbyes
And one will stay to the end of the day And raise a glass on high

And scatter flowers all around us,
And whisper one last time

    Sleep easy
    Sleep easy, now
    Yesterday's gone, tomorrow ain't come
    Sleep easy, now
    Sleep easy
