Bill Anderson — Sleep lyrics

Sleep sweet and deep
Close my eyes with a smile
Sleep come over me
Let me rest and dream awhile

I want to dream of two young lovers holding hands
The dreams that I used to dream way back when
All the things that could and should've been
Before the eternal sadness set in

Sleep sweet and deep
Let me rest and dream awhile

Let me dream of the sunlight shining in her hair
Of the days with laughter in the air
Take me back to my world of happiness again
Before the eternal sadness set in

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