lyrics

i don't sleep too much these days, and not for lack of trying
busy keeps the girl awake, and keeps the eyes from drying
write and draw it out
all what you see when on your back
with eyes wide open, tightly shut
and when you hear doors crack
don't be afraid when hands move quickly
fill the space the light has made
just be grateful they are hands and, when you asked him, he forgave

busy puts the girl to sleep and keeps the girl awake
just be thankful that you only asked him for your soul to take

he won't weep too much these days, and not because i'm gone
busy keeps the boy awake and keeps the curtains drawn
roll around in sheets
and feel the skin
but just your own
when brain blacks out in crowded space, but open up
you're just alone
don't be afraid when hands move quickly
fill the space the light has made
just be grateful they are hands and, when you asked him, he forgave

busy puts the girl to sleep and keeps the girl awake
just be thankful that you only asked him for your soul to take

now i lay me down to sleep
i pray the lord my soul to keep
if i should die before i wake
i pray to god my soul to take
if i should live for other days
i pray the lord to guide my ways
father unto thee i pray
thou hast guarded me all day
safe i am within thy sight
safely let me sleep tonight
bless my friends, the whole world bless
help me to learn helpfulness
keep me ever in thy sight
so, to all, i say goodnight
