Sleep You Now - Lyrics

My father was a handsome man
Lived life on his own
Then one day my father died
I buried him alone.

And told him sleep you know
Rest you know
Tomorrow I'll be gone
I'm a brave, a brave little girl
I'm young, and I'll go on

Now I love a wandering man
A man who's born to go
And I lay wake while he's asleep
Just knowing what I know
And thinking sleep you mnow
Rest you know
Tomorrow he'll be gone
I'm a brave, a brave little girl
I'm young, and I'll go on

It can be a bitter thing
To live your life alone
But one thing living by yourself
The rules are all your own
You know that, sleep you know
Rest you know
Tomorrow he'll be gone
I'm a brave, a brave little girl
I'm young, and I'll go on

Maybe one day I'll meet a man
One who'll want to stay
But by then I'll be too well trained
In a game I've learned to play
I'll tell him sleep you know
Rest you know
Tomorrow I'll be gone
I've been too long a brave little girl
Alone's all I go on...
