Hush my love now don't you cry
Everything will be all right
Close your eyes and drift in dream
Rest in peaceful sleep

If there's one thing I hope I showed you [x2]
Hope I showed you

Just give love to all [x3]

Oh my love... In my arms tight
Every day you give me life
As I drift off to your world
Will rest in peaceful sleep

I know there's one thing that you showed me [x2]
That you showed me

Just give love to all [x3]
Let's give love to all [x2]
Just give love to all
Let's give love to all
Just give love to all
Let's give love to all

    When I was born my father played the song on his guitar and this song allowed me to sleep soothingly and made me feel safe and sound and when I turned six he died and when he first died I slept with the song playing and all of the pictures I had of him. Recently I have been thinking of him everyday, every hour, every second because I see so much of him in everything and a month ago old friends of his showed up and asked if he was still in the city I live in, we had to explain to them that he's been dead since 2008. It absolutely crushed me. I'll never get over him, but at least I have the memories and the song. So many people around town just ask who I am and my grandma knows everyone so she always says "Oh this is Jeffs little girl. Remember Jeff?" and of course they do, they always do. I just wish I had a version or copy of him playing it on the guitar. He never sang to it because he was an awful singer, but the best guitar player I've ever met. It was a pleasure to love and have him as a father. R.I.P Jeffrey Cameron Belless.

    I don't know why i always felt the 'rest in peaceful sleep' was death - letting go of life, or letting go of someone you love,very sad music, haunting even - guitar is tuned so low - i know the literal meaning of the words evoke the feelings you have all described but for me... As i drift off your world... So he goes to 'your world' by drifting off...

    Wow! Probably the most beautiful song ever written. The melody is so gentle. When I hear this it makes me think about my two year old nephew. Just give love to all!!! What better advice than that.
