Sister sleep come to my bedside and console me
Bring me anyone to hold me
For I spend too many waking hours in your company

Come and close my darkening eyes
With your light and nimble fingers
Tiptoe them over my eyelashes and sprinkle me with dust
Until time passes over us

I don't know if you save souls
But could you pick mine up off the floor as you go
And bring it back tomorrow
Or bring me one I can borrow for the day, just for the day

Sister sleep sing me a story with your gentle voice
Give me just one reason to rejoice
Come and take this silence come and drown out this noise

Can I be forgiven 'til morning sun
Can I be your angel 'til judgement comes
I can see the sun

I don't know if you save souls
But could you pick mine up off the floor as you go
And bring it back tomorrow
When you wake me into this sorrow
Or could you bring me a soul I can borrow
For the day, just for the day
