lyrics

There's no wine to speak of
There's no wine to sing me soft and sweet to sleep
There's no suggestion of the warmth that you'd bring again and again to my cheek
There's no comfort lying awake here next to me, next to me 'tween these cold sheets

Sleep, come easy tonight.

There's no whiskey to sip on
There's no whiskey to hold me fast and firm to my seat
There is a vacancy in the eyes that you cast on the wall and your hands and my feet
There is distance in the words of goodbye that you ceasingly seem to repeat

Sleep, come easy tonight.

There was intoxication hanging moist on your lips and fresh on your hips and caught in the very music of your voice
Well now there's no echo, no voice in the hall,
There's no shadow, no answer to my call

Sleep, though I'm lonesome oh take me away on your sweet ship,
Sleep, though I'm lonesome oh take me away on your sweet ship,
Sleep, though she's gone from my presence and sight,
Sleep, come easy tonight.
