Lyrics

I remember tears streaming down your face

When I said I'll never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said
Don't leave me here alone

But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight.

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright

No one can hurt you now

Come morning light

You and I'll be safe and sound.

Don't you dare look out your window

Darlin', everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold on to this lullaby
Even when the music's gone

Gone.

Just close your eyes

The sun is going down

You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound.

Just close your eyes

You'll be alright
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound.
