Nothing Left to Do

Close your eyes and let your head fall back onto my breast
The day is done, night has come, and now it’s time to rest
The eagle and the lion lay asleep and so should you
There’s nothing left to do my love, there’s nothing left to do

The colors of the burning sun now paint your bedroom wall
While cool and artificial light illuminates the hall
The kitchen sleeps in darkness, in a moment we shall too
There’s nothing left to do my love, there’s nothing left to do
One day your sleep shall never end, your bed will be the ground
One day you’ll never fear again, for fear is often found
In hedging bets in case life’s plans don’t happen to come true
There’s nothing left to do my love, there’s nothing left to do
