Sleep well my love

Breath in the sweet deep perfumed air

The hour is late, soft auburn hair

You can't go home, you'll stay the night?

For you my love, I pledge my life


The night is long, I'll watchman be

There'll be no ghosts come frighten thee

No villains from the past unlocked

It's over now, all will be stopped


The ghosts of older times perhaps

Have caught thee in their snares and traps

But I say halt! No more of that

I've paid your bond, you're free at last


The badlands of a bad man's mind

Have no place here nor on this night

Nor in the nights still yet to come

Not now that I have pledged my love


I pledge my love to keep thee safe

You'll not be used again as bait

Your pimps left town, he's slung his hook

Now close your eyes, sleep well my love
