Porter Wagoner – Sleep lyrics

Sleep sweet and deep visit me for awhile

Sleep come over me let me rest and dream awhile

Of two young lovers making plans of dreams I dreamed when dreams began

Of things that could and should have been before the eternal sadness moved in

Sleep take over me set me free to dream awhile

Of sunlight shining in her hair of days with laughter in the air

Of my world of sweetness again before the eternal sadness moved in

Sleep sweet and deep let me rest and dream awhile let me rest and dream awhile
