Bonnie Owens – Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Alone lyrics

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
