Sing Me To Sleep

Something keeps me awake, something outside is stirring

Through the dark and over the grass

The rabbits and snakes are concurring

They sing in the soil and bones rattle loud

They cry out as this they do see

Someone in those walls is suffering proud

For you are worth every ache within me

I don’t hear music, don’t hear anything

I see dirt, I see cement

What a troubled world it is when you’re outside arms length

It pulls out it’s teeth in dry irreverence

Come and find me on this floor

I am only a half, truth be told

Take away all the distance and say:

“my beloved, I’m here, and now you are whole”

If I turn and see your eyes in the dark I will know the blue in an instant

Never have they gone so far

Never has your face been distant

My life I will give you like a verse and a ring

I will be your only one

And what you ask of me will be yours until all is said and done

Your heart is a song that I hear Jesus sing

It comes over oceans to me

And the notes spell out messages in vibrant streams

And what’s written you show only me

But if you can’t close up all the gaps tonight

Put me to bed in your way

You see right through everything I am

For you my insides are displayed

Sing me to sleep my beautiful one

I will love only you for all time

Sing me to sleep my only one

With promises that you are all mine

Be still my heart, I hear your back cracking

It sounds like music to me

I see your face and I can hardly breath

It looks just like a song to me
