Safe Asleep

She curls herself on the couch
The TV glow and blankets out
She’s had some trouble resting lately

Dreams of things she can’t recall
It doesn’t make much sense at all
Tomorrow will be better maybe

Lie beside her as she takes the better part of me
Because I give her all I have to keep her safe when she’s asleep
Sometimes I don’t think she even knows when I can see
But i’d give her all I have to keep her safe when she’s asleep

Mornings come too early now
Everyday there’s more to do
She wonders when it all will go away

Still she makes it through somehow
And sets aside the things she doubts
Now and then she takes some time to pray

Lie beside her as she takes the better part of me
Because I give her all I have to keep her safe when she’s asleep
Sometimes I don’t think she even knows when I can see
But i’d give her all I have to keep her safe when she’s asleep

I don’t think she understands the way I feel about her
I don’t think she knows how much I couldn’t live without her
I don’t think there’s anything I wouldn’t give to keep
All these things away so she is safe when she’s asleep

Lie beside her as she takes the better part of me
Because I give her all I have to keep her safe when she’s asleep
Sometimes I don’t think she even knows when I can see
But i’d give her all I have to keep her safe when she’s asleep
