Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love You

[chorus]
Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

The rocket racery's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, we'll find the mouse
And I love you

[chorus]

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen," wherever you are
And I love You

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed
Godspeed
Godspeed
Sweet dreams

    General CommentThis song brings me near to tears every time I heard it. My brother died about two years ago, at age 26. This song reminds me of how my parents must feel, having lost a son. Not entirely sure of the lyrical relevancy, but this song really hits home. :-(

    General Commentthis song is absolutely amazing

    it gives me shivers down my spine when she sings, 'god hears amen wherever you are', i think that the father is simply telling his son - even though you are far away i send my love to you and when you don't feel like i'm there and that you're a lone remember that god is there

    i love the guitar it's so soothing, this song sometimes makes me cry
