Hopeless Heart


Sleep precious
Sleep my love

Sleep until nothing’s left
Sleep until the world is gone
Sleep until it’s cold
Sleep until the world is black

Sh… don’t speak
You’re too weak
Just close those
Tired sore eyes
And sleep

Dream of a better world
Dream of a bright future
Dream of the perfect life
Dream of what will never be

Sleep soundly
Sleep peacefully
Sleep deeply
Sleep forever

Nothing can hurt you
No one can get you
You’re safe now
Just close your eyes
And sleep

Sleep my love
Sleep my sweet
Sleep darling love

I’ll be with you soon
Wait for me
Just sleep
For now.

    Like a cool song hearing from a long distance.
    So sweet, so lovely, so soft.
    10 with pleasure.
