Sleep Now

Sleep now, another day in your young lives is done,
go to sleep now; tomorrow brave new worlds will surely come,
go to sleep; you're such a wonder,
such a mystery to me.

Somewhere your future friends are lying as you are
and your lovers right now are only crying babes in arms
the world turns under our feet, our lives are passing by in our sleep.

Sleep now, one day I'll tell you how my life has been.
So strange to think your eyes will fall on things that mine have never seen,
these eyes that gently flickerin some lost childhood dream.

Sleep now, safe and warm in the haven of your bed,
go to sleep now.... although you won't remember what I've said,
your father loves you.

Liverpool … we'll never sleep alone.
