The big clock on the wall shows way past two and I'm still waiting up for you
It's plain to see that you're not coming home so now I lay me down to sleep alone
My arms ache to hold you like old times how I long to feel your lips on mine
Without you and your love I've been dyin' for so long
So now I lay me down to sleep alone
[ steel ]
While I search my mind for just one sign of hope tonight
You're out somewhere holding someone else so tight
I know I've been a fool for hanging on so now I lay me down to sleep alone
My arms ache to hold you...
Now I lay me down to sleep alone
