Goodnight baby, sleep tight my love
May God watch over you from above
Tomorrow I'm workin' what would I do
I'd be lost and lonely if not for you

So close your eyes
We're alright for now

I've spent my life travelin'
Spent my life free
I could not repay all you've done for me

So sleep tight baby
Unfurrow your brow
And know I love you
We're alright for now
We're alright for now

    By far, one of my favorite songs by Tom. My dad used to sing this to me before I went to bed at night. It has so much love in it.

    This is one of those songs that a good boyfriend should sing to his girlfriend he's with her.

    Indeed, I just learned this song on guitar so I can sing it for my gf. It's so simple but sooo good...some of the most beautiful pieces of music can come from just a dude and his acoustic guitar.
