"Sleep Like a Baby Tonight (Alternative Perspective Mix by Tchad Blake)" as written by Adam Clayton, Dave Evans, Paul David Hewson and Larry Mullen....
Morning, your toast
Your tea and sugar
Read about a politician’s lover
Go through the day
Like a knife through butter
Why don’t you
You dress in the colours of forgiveness
Your eyes as red as Christmas
Purple robes are folded on the kitchen chair

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight
In your dreams everything is alright
Tomorrow dawns like someone else’s suicide
You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

Dreams
It’s a dirty business, dreaming
Where there is silence and not screaming
Where there’s no daylight
There’s no healing, no no

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight
In your dreams everything is alright
Tomorrow dawns like a suicide
But you’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

Hope, hope is where the door is
When the church is where the war is
Where no one can feel no one else’s pain

You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight
In your dreams everything is alright
Tomorrow dawns like a suicide
But you’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight
Sleep like a baby tonight
Like a bird, your dreams'll take flight
Like St. Francis covered in light
You’re gonna sleep like a baby tonight

    General CommentObviously a completely different version, but since they just do the automatic licensing thing for U2 and change any alternate version to the standard album version:

    Wake
    In the morning when you wake up
    You won't have much, but you'll have enough
    When you are weakest I'll be strong enough for you

    Dream
    Yeah, the ones where you are fearless
    Can't break what's broken, you are tearless
    Steal back your innocence, that's what they stole from you

    You're gonna sleep like a baby tonight
    Not everything can be so black and white
    There are demons in the broad daylight
    But you can sleep like a baby tonight

    Stop
    Where you stand right now, just stop
    Don't think or look down at the drop
    People staring from the street
    Don't know what you've got

    You're gonna sleep like a baby tonight
    No, not everything can be so black and white
    There are demons in the broad daylight
    But you can sleep like a baby tonight

    Hope
    Hope is where the door is
    When hope is where the war is
    Where nobody can feel no one elses' pain

    You're gonna sleep like a baby tonight
    Not everything can be so black and so white
    There are demons in the broad daylight
    You got to sleep like a baby tonight

    Sleep like a baby tonight
    Where you stand
    Where you fall, is where I kneel
    So take your heart back to where you can feel
    Like a child
    Child
