Out beyond the evening falling
There's a point tonight
And when's he's cold and weary
He closed his little eyes
Dream of two and dream of three
And dream of life upon some sea
And sweetly sleeps that little boy

I can't sleep sometimes
I can lay there and stare at the wall
Think about it all
If I can hold on to and hold on to
Our love

Darkest hour of the night
Comes just before the dawn
So turn your side steps slowly homeward
The day is almost gone
Keep your eye upon some cloud
And see the stars come burning down
And you can see this time around

You can talk out loud
You can fall down and laugh upon the floor
I will laugh along
If I can hold on to and hold on to
Our love
If I can hold on to and hold on to
Our love

Comes a time you're scared
Say a little prayer
See the candle smoke up in the air
See the world for free
Little family
Now our one and one and one makes three
Oh whoa

You can talk out loud
You can fall down and laugh upon the floor
I will laugh along
If I can hold on to and hold on to
Our love

If I can hold on to and hold on to
Our love

(x4)
And sweetly sleeps that little boy
And you can see this time around
