Sleep song    (video)

 

    C - Em - F - G (2x)

 

                 C               Em              F                 G

1. When you were asleep, I was kissing your forehead,

C                     Em     - F                               G

    you gave a frown,        so I kissed you again.

C                      Em                             F                        G

    You started waking, and put your arms round my waist,

C                      Am              F     - G                                 C - Em    - F

    just making sure I was there,        then you drifted awa.........y,

G                                 C    - Em - F - G

    Then you drifted away!

 

                C        Em                 F                    G

2. And when I awoke, I found out I'd been dreaming,

C                     Em                        F                 G

    some of my bed clothes were still on the floor.

C                  Em          F                       G

    I looked around, realised you were leaving me,

C                  Am                F                    G                             C - Em - F

    I saw the back of your dress, as you slipped through the doo......r,

                  G                             C 

    as you slipped through the door.

 

 

+  instrumental = verse 2 (dah dah dah ….)

 

                C       Em              F                    G

3. And when I return, I will kiss your eyes open,

     C                Em                   F                G

    take off my clothes, and I'll lie by your side.

         C          Em              F                    G

    Then I will wait 'til the sandman has done with you,

C                       Am      F               G                C - Em    - F

    and as you sleepily rise, you'll find I'll be the........re,

               G                C - Em    - F      G - C - Em   - F - G - C

    You'll find I'll be the........re.       The...............re.
