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

    General CommentI also have not decided what I think the song is about. But, this one part made me wonder if it is about a girl.. but still involves faith.

    "Your heart is a song that I hear Jesus sing "

    If it were about Jesus it wouldn't be worded that way.

    Sing Me To Sleep: This is a love song about a long distance relationship, and the strength of the love overcoming the obstacle of distance

    General Commentyes, yet another nearly perfect song by showbread. Dies has an impeccable knack for using words so eloquently, and i envy him for it.

    i think it is simply a love song, but whether it be to God, or a friend, we may never know, but i feel like it has been written so for that purpose.
