sleep child lyrics – endless blue

the dark men came to flood our streets
they came and took my brother
there was blood around but not a sound
we were searching for each other
well there she shakes with silent sobs
she pulls me close into her
she sings a song, “it won’t be long”
her words they couldn’t be truer

hush child, my little girl
close those brown eyes
dream child, sweet little girl
let go of all your sorrow
breathe child, my sweet little child
come dry those eyes
breathe child, my sweet baby child
you’ll need your strength tomorrow

at night we walk and we sleep all day
so the dark men will not come here
it’s not cool enough and the floors are rough
and the smell of powder lingers
mother’s here and she draws me near
her warm hands always soothing
she pulls me up, her little girl
“come on, we must get moving”

hush child, my little girl
close those brown eyes
dream child, sweet little girl
let go of all your sorrow
breathe child, my sweet little child
come dry those eyes
breathe child, my sweet baby child
you’ll need your strength tomorrow

the end is near and our fate is clear
the dark men they have found me
i close my eyes, surprised to find relief
not scared, i’m feeling nothing
the frightening sounds, intolerance
they can’t ignore this violence
my mothers song, yes they’ll know they’re wrong
will finally end their silence

hush child, my little girl
close those brown eyes
dream child, sweet little girl
let go of all your sorrow
breathe child, my sweet little child
come dry those eyes
breathe child, my sweet baby child
you’ll need your strength tomorrow

hush child, my little child
close those brown eyes
dream child, sweet little girl
let go of all your sorrow
my brave child, you’re my sweet little child
come dry those eyes
breathe child, my sweet baby child
you’ll need your strength tomorrow

the war goes on
all is said and done
the war goes on
the war goes on
