Singing Myself To Sleep

I’m safe here, lying in your arms
While the world outside me screams
Run through fields of restless sleep
Out of reach inside my dreams

And I, I’m singing myself to sleep
And I pray God will keep me safe

Lead me not into complacency
Teach me not to be a fool
While the world runs blind and carefree
Keep me running after you

Weak calls to weak
And weak men will rule
And lead stumbling nations
Like fools leading fools
And the blood runs down the tears that they weep
And run together making rivers in the street

There’s no hope outside of your love
