"I can't sleep these days"
You said the stars look like a graveyard
And the moon feels like a grave
"What if He came?
What if He came for me?
What if close enough's not close enough
And He's burning family trees?"
The Earth's on fire in your dreams
For miles, as far as you can see
I offered shelter from the flames and you said to me
"Not much has changed
My hands still shake
My hair still grays when I hear her name"
I tucked you in and swore to you that I'd keep you safe
So sleep well, sleep well, angel
Sleep well, sleep well, angel

I'm gonna hold your hand till it's over
We're gonna make it through tonight
You said the devil sits beside you
Well then, sweetheart, so do I
I'm gonna hold your hand till it's over
We're gonna make it through tonight
And if the devil's still beside you
Then, sweetheart, so am I

And in the middle of the night they stole your light
They took the dawn from emerald eyes
Come four AM, youth fades away without goodbyes
And not much has changed
Your hands still shake
Your hair still grays when you hear her name
I'm waking every morning hoping that maybe you're okay
So sleep well, sleep well, angel
Sleep well, sleep well, angel

I'm gonna hold your hand till it's over
We're gonna make it through tonight
You said the devil sits beside you
Well then, sweetheart, so do I
I'm gonna hold your hand till it's over
We're gonna make it through tonight
And if the devil's still beside you
Then, sweetheart, so am I

So sleep well, sleep well, angel
Sleep well, sleep well, angel
I'm gonna hold your hand till it's over
We're gonna make it through tonight
You said the devil sits beside you
Well then, sweetheart, so do I
I'm gonna hold your hand till it's over
We're gonna make it through tonight
And if the devil's still beside you
Then, sweetheart, so am I
