  • Morning, your toast
    Your tea and sugar
    Read about a politician's lover
    Go through the day
    Like a knife through butter
    Why don't you
    You dress in the colours of forgiveness
    Your eyes as red as Christmas
    Purple robes are folded on the kitchen chair

    You're gonna sleep like a baby tonight
    In your dreams everything is alright
    Tomorrow dawns like someone else's suicide
    You're gonna sleep like a baby tonight

    Dreams
    It's a dirty business, dreaming
    Where there is silence and not screaming
    Where there's no daylight
    There's no healing, no no

    You're gonna sleep like a baby tonight
    In your dreams everything is alright
    Tomorrow dawns like a suicide
    But you're gonna sleep like a baby tonight

    Hope, hope is where the door is
    When the church is where the war is
    Where no one can feel no one else's pain

    You're gonna sleep like a baby tonight
    In your dreams everything is alright
    Tomorrow dawns like a suicide
    But you're gonna sleep like a baby tonight
    Sleep like a baby tonight
    Like a bird, your dreams'll take flight
    Like St. Francis covered in light
    You're gonna sleep like a baby tonight Writer/s: ADAM CLAYTON, DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN, PAUL DAVID HEWSON
