lyrics

Strangers talk loud but don't speak the truth
Faith don't come easy when the darkness slips through
Trouble lays low just waiting for you
And falling apart ain't a hard thing to do.

Sleep, Angel, sleep beneath a blue sky
Dream, Baby, dream with your eyes open wide
Think for yourself, then go do your best
Peace comes to those who let God do the rest.

I hope your dreams grow too big to scare
And I hope your heartbreak won't be too much to bear
Always remember even though life ain't fair
Reasons to hope are still everywhere.

Sleep, Angel, sleep beneath a blue sky
Dream, Baby, dream with your eyes open wide
Think for yourself, then go do your best
Peace comes to those who let God do the rest.

Know that I'll love you even when I'm not here
Whisper these words and I'll always be near.

Sleep, Angel, sleep beneath a blue sky
Dream, Baby, dream with your eyes open wide
Think for yourself, then go do your best
Peace comes to those who let God do the rest.

Sleep, Angel, sleep beneath a blue sky
There's a long road ahead, and it's a heck of a ride
So think for yourself, then go do your best
Peace comes to those who let God do the rest.
Peace comes to those who let God do the rest.
Peace comes to those who let go of the rest.
