Sleep Through the Night of Prison



Let go of the thoughts that haunt you
release the rage inside
Find the peace inside you
find the peace inside

It doesn’t matter what you did
what thoughts burden your mind
Listen to the silence
You’ll find what you need to find

How it felt to live your life
when all you did was be
A child at play alive to life
not worried how to be

You know that child’s still living inside
see him reaching for you
Feel your love for that child
you know he wants love from you

Softly ease the mind of the child
hear the child’s cry
Touch the spirit of the child
cry the child’s cry

Love the cry you are crying
the child’s cry to be free
Born to yearn for freedom
your spirit is always free

Rest in peace my weary child
I’ll watch over you
Sleep and ease your weary mind
Sleep the whole night though

Look back on your life
Find peace with what you see
When we were parted by our fear
you took care of me

Rest in peace my weary child
I’ll watch over you
Sleep and ease your weary mind
Sleep the whole night though
