Through the Night

© Words and music by Ray Scudero. All rights reserved.

Close your eyes, go to sleep, little child.
I don’t know all the answers to questions you give.
Rest your head in my arms till the morning.
Tomorrow’s another day if we live through the night.

I’ll shelter your body with mine,
And hope that the shelling won’t come very close.
I’ll be with you all of the time.
Though there’s war all around us I’ll give you repose through the night.

Refrain:
I’ll cover your ears when the rockets come in,
And we’ll hide if the bullets start flying.
I’d rather be hearing the blast of the bombs
Than the sound of my little one crying
Through the night.

Mama’s been taken away,
Like Daddy was taken a long time ago.
I’m all you have left in the world,
And I won’t let them hurt you, I won’t let you go through the night.

(Refrain)

So close your eyes;
I don’t know all the answers to questions you give;
Rest your head;
Tomorrow’s another day if we live
Through the night.
