Lyrics

Don't wake me mother
I know it's only 5pm
There's no need to bother me
The sun hasn't sunk yet
The streets are crowded
The air is stiff
I'd better stay in my bed

You know the daylight is high
Scorching my skin
So I wait for the night
To slowly come in
Its beautiful touch
You know what I mean
I will be waiting

And you say
Sleep little girl
Sleep little girl
I am close to you
Sleep little girl
Your funny curls
Will never turn grey
Sleep, let all my fairytales
Come true as you're awake

Father, my father
Shut the window close the doors
I wanna see no other men
My dear father
People have invented laws
They will condemn me to death
According to them

Look, some innocent blood
Slips through the roof
It's spreading about
It's flooding the room
But I cannot go out
I wait for the moon
I'm tired of waiting

Sleep little girl
Sleep little girl
I am close to you
Sleep little girl
Your funny curls
Will never turn grey
Sleep, this cynical world
Will fade as you're awake
