"Put You to Sleep" as written by and Alex Trevor James....
When I come we are defenseless
Can't make out the features of a friend
We lie down in a bed unmade
But the darkness, it lives

When she starts to dream
her head turns mean
Wake up baby while you toss and turn
"I had another one"
Tell me all about it, girl
"I felt those hands around my neck
squeezin' till I couldn't breathe"
And I say, "My love,
my love, put you to sleep"

And I can't undo the wrong
that other men have done her
I just try to get along
and love her as no other man has loved her

When she starts to dream
she starts hearing things
Wake up baby while you toss and turn
"I had another one"
Tell me all about it, girl
"I heard those footsteps
comin' up from behind me"
But I say, "My love,
my love, put you to sleep"

Don't worry 'bout your baby boy
He's asleep beside us
Don't worry 'bout the things we've done
The Holy Ghost, he guides us
Finds us and keeps us
Feeds and defeats us
Scorns us, reforms us to transform glorious
