Billie Myers Sleeping Beauty Lyrics

Last updated:

VERSE I:
He waited,
He counted
the days
to see your mothers eyes in you

A smile he knew
every day was a year to him
he felt so helpless
he felt you kicking


Did you hear his voice,
Go gentle,
so calming.
He placed his hand
where he thought you would be
He called you sleeping beauty

CHORUS:
Behind the child,
a father's pride
I've never seen a grown man cry
(He said) I've never felt this way before.
Sleeping beauty,
sleep no more,

beauty sleep...

VERSE II:
Your first breath
was your last breath

he heard it all before.
The silence of an unheard cry,
the day stood still,
his mouth went dry.

When nothing moved,
he felt so helpless.
"What have I done,
do we really deserve this?"
He pressed his palms
and he begged forgivness.
I'd give my life to save his.

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
You sleep beyond the reach of dreams,
in a room that has no doors,
so if I kissed you now,
would I be your Prince Charming,
or just
an ordinary
man who tried to kiss your back?
Back to life
(Don't) turn your back, no,
(Don't) turn your back, no,
(Don't) turn your back, no, you now
(Dont turn around).
Turn around,
if your lost, I'll find you.
Turn around,
I'm still here beside you
You know my name when you see my face,
Our memories might crowd when I'm holding your face.

REPEAT CHORUS

Behind the child
A mother's cries.
Her tears are never ever dry
She said "I've never felt this way before"
Sleeping Beauty
Sleep no more

Beatuy sleep no more...
On the stone house remains
"I love you and your name"
