Cry To Sleep

1998 - 2010

Cry to sleep little girl

Bathe your face with your tears

Let that wide river flow

Down your rose red cheeks

Cry away little lady

In the daylight

At the break of dawn

Cry like a wolf

In the bright moonlight

Off the bed

Lift your head

Let the whole world see

The pain and the fear

That's beyond skin deep

Cry now sweet child

When someone's listening

Cry your heart out

Under the spotlight

Cry now out loud!

Till someone takes their arm

And wraps it

Around your quivering shoulder

Don't be afraid

If someone pushes you away

Cry to sleep little girl

Let the whole world see

That sweet little girl

That's so unhappy
