"A Song For Sleeping" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Finally I've met you
The day has come
You're more than beautiful
And you're my son

I don't deserve this
I never thought it could be
Quite like the moment
When you first smiled at me
A toothless, wonderful feeling
Like I'd never seen

It's you, Noah, it's you

And when you lie down to sleep
I'll protect you
From the demons of the night
While I'm watching you grow

I'll pray
There's so much I could teach you
If you only have the time
Pray
There's so much God can teach you
If you only have the time

So will you tell me the little things?
What does God look like?
And angels' wings?
I don't remember these things
So would you teach them to me?
So for the moment
I'll watch you breathe

And when you wake up in the morning
And I pour the coffee
You're always smiling, sweetly

    General Commentits amazin song, kinda shows how having children affects you. you would do anything for them, keep them safe and pray for the best in them all. even if you're in a mental rock band!
