Sleep Like a Baby


My nights are like my days

And my dreams keep me awake

I’m so lonesome, I’m so blue

I can’t sleep my darling without you

 

And you waited for my call

You waited, through it all

You kept a light, in the dark

Without you my darling there’s no spark

 

Chorus: 

You wrapped your lovin’ arms around me

And we listened for angels’ songs

With your sweet love surrounding me

I can sleep like a baby all night long

 

Instrumental (verse)

And when I came to you

My heart broken, in two

And you held me, till I slept

And you dried up every tear that I wept

 

Chorus:

You wrapped your lovin’ arms around me

And we listened for angels’ songs

With your sweet love surrounding me

I can sleep like a baby all night long

 

Instrumental -

 

I walked a lonely road

I called the shots, stayed on my own

I could not see for all my pride

But you understood and you stayed right by my side

 

Chorus: And you wrapped your lovin’ arms around me

And we listened for angels’ songs

With your sweet love surrounding me

I can sleep like a baby all night long

All night long, all night long, all night long…..
