Shoes of Sleep

Jou dy oer
Lytse jonge
Jou dyn lichem oer
Oan ’e sliep
Eagen ticht en
Finsters iepen
Sliepe sliepe
Myn jonkje
Mem wachtet op dy

Rest your head
Rest your heavy head
In my hands
Lay your body down
In seasons of slumber
The silent observer
Awaits with a smile

Jou dy oer
Lytse jonge
Oan it moanneljocht
Jou dyn lichem oer
Oan ’e dreamen
Flean mar, flean mar
Myn jonkje
Mem wachtet op dy

You’re off now in sleepy shoes
A stand-off with just the truth
There’s wisdom in every choice
There’s laughter in soundless joy
A safe thrill, a place to go
A landfill and all your own


Shoes of sleep

Surrender
Little boy
Surrender your body
To sleep
Close your eyes
And open your mind
Sleep sleep
My little boy
Mama waits here for you

Rest your head
Rest your heavy head
In my hands
Lay your body down
In seasons of slumber
The silent observer
Awaits with a smile

Surrender
Little boy
To the moonlight
Surrender your body
To the dreams
Fly fly
My little boy
Mama waits here for you

You’re off now in sleepy shoes
A stand-off with just the truth
There’s wisdom in every choice
There’s laughter in soundless joy
A safe thrill, a place to go
A landfill and all your own
