Nick Lachey - Godspeed (Sweet Dreams) Lyrics

Dragon Tales and "The Water Is Wide"
Pirate's sail and Lost Boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh, my love will fly to you each night on angels' wings
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh, my love will fly to you each night on angels' wings
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen" wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh, my love will fly to you each night on angels' wings
Sweet dreams

    Looking at All these comments and How they are saying this is there song is for a child they lost ( I understand I have lost a kid too) but when I think of this it brings me back when I just found out That my Girlfriend at the time was Pregnant but I was thinking about Going into the Army so when I listened to this it made me think of what my children think if I wasn't there (if I Die during my Service) would they hate me would they Have a good Father Figure and There mom not have to worry about money ugh I wonder how much different things would be if they were here today Rest in peace Little Buddy Daddy loves you Wilder

  44. Mike Wasko

    truck driver for 25 years now hauling military equipment and jet engines for Boeing under contract and only come home for a couple days every 6 mos. my oldest daughter is 23 ,middle daughter is 19 and my boy is 11 ,hard to be away and I miss them every minute ,this song gets me thru the hard times and really digs a soft spot in this big tuff truck drivers heart ..the are grown and are pretty used to me being gone but the boy has a real hard time when I leave ..i prey god watches over each of them and protects them while im gone ..i love them more than anything in the world and wish I could reverse time and change some regretful decisions I made simply because of money $ ..if any one reads this that might be in the same position ,take my word for it all the money in the world and all the apologies could not compensate for wat I've missed and all of them growin g up without me being able to hold there hand or hug them when they needed me
    thanks to my loving wife that has never said a negative word about our situation and her string will ,it's because of her we are still together as a family

    Steph S.

    Mike Wasko bless you and your family. Sounds like you are a good dad anyhow. As parents we all make mistakes but as long as we learn and imorove that's the true and pure love that is so unique from a good parent. I try to always remember to enjoy each day and soak in all of the memories because before long my kids will be grown up. My husband and I played this at my sons baby shower 5 years ago. Time flies and he'll be in school in 2 months and although it may sound silly I am sad to let him go.

    Shed a little tear and sent my love to my late partner Doug who although he was a grown man had a beautiful, child-like side to him that was the epitome of adorable and humility. He died suddenly without warning, and I learned so much from him. And he brought so much into my life. And I miss him so much.


    Godspeed to you and your beloved angel. He is dancing with the stars now, embracing your prayers and the love you have for him still warm in your heart. ♡


    Rest in serenity, Doug.


    Gerard Bergeron So sorry to hear that. But happy for you that you had those happy times! Happy New Year!


    Godspeed to Doug <3

  67. Leanne Wood

    A beautiful song that captures the love of a mother for her son. I danced to this song with my son at his wedding. It was perfect.


    +Leanne Wood yes its a very nice song. But just to let you know the song was written by a dad (Radney Foster) for he's son who needs to move with he's mom to France.

    yung mouli

    +Rachel Smith My cousin died at birth and this was at the funeral


    My mother had me at 28, healthy and fine. She tried again with my step-dad, and they got married. On the day they got married they found out that they were pregnant..
    At 11 weeks, the baby passed away. We never knew if it was male or female, but we named him Malcolm. I am crying while writing this suddenly, as I almost forgot about my brother. When we told my little cousins, Olympia and Aurora, the littlest one, Aurora walked up to us and said "It's going to be a girl!!" and we were taken-a-back.. If it was a girl we were going to call her Brooklyn. It hurts so much still, even though it's been 5 months.
    I am so sorry for your, and her lost.. :(

    Is he okay? Did she give birth?

    Dawud Yelton

    hope everything is well; God bless...

    Stanning Annie

    sorry for your loss

    Dave Rogers

    My 2 month old son freddie died in 2012 and it was so amazing that I just happened to spend 24 hours with just me and him, the day before he passed! As I was so busy with work at the time freddie died from cot death during the day time ! Xxxx son xxxxx

  78. Margo McCuistion

    This song was written by a Dad whose Son was taken to another country after the divorce. It isn't about someone dying although that was my first thought when I first heard it.

    paul leach

    This song is about whatever the listener decides it's about.

    Bryan Mears

    The beauty of art is that it is left for interpretation

    D D

    Margo McCuistion I didn't know that, the lyrics do sound as tho a loved child has passed on..The father was hurting so much, his lyrics must of felt like he had lost his son forever.

    Chad Beermann

    Radney Foster was the songwriter.

    Cristina Carbajal Mariscal

    My son is serving our country and is away from home. This song is so beautiful.

  79. Sierra Gibson

    My brother got married this past weekend and this was the mother son dance song st his wedding

  80. Melissa Burgett

    i sing this to my lil guy. it's sweet.

  81. Jennie Bills

    2 years after my god sons death and this song still turns me into a blubbering mess of emotions and tears. 

  82. Lee Martinez

    I'd never heard this song before tonight. Makes me miss my little man. Daddy loves you, Mikey.

  83. Maria Flores

    I would sing this song to my step son at night for him to go to sleep.. i would sing it to him countless times.. and i would do it forever if i could. My most beloved step son i love you with all my heart you are the light of my life.. i miss you so so much.. i miss everything about you. Youre the missing piece to my heart..i look forward to hold you in my arms once more..
    -♡ mia

  84. Justin Lai

    I don't know why, but this song always reminds me of an impending apocalypse. A mother coos her child to sleep with this song as chaos descends outside... Godspeed, indeed.

    Jordan O'Malley

    I'm like, reading through the comments, see yours and I'm like, "Week that escalated quickly."

  85. AJ Erickson

    He isn't gone, but this song makes me think of my 11~year~old brother. I have a very close relationship with him, being the oldest and very protective of him as he is the youngest. I miss you, Spuddy. I wish I could always be there to protect you. I think of you and the others everyday.

  86. Debra Morrisroe

    Lost my son and this is an eerily close experience . . . but my older surviving son could be equally (thanks for matchbox cars) represented here. Thank you Dixie Chicks for the share!

  87. Breanne Potter

    I love this song as of right now. Just found out today that my nephew has stopped growing in the womb. He was 28 weeks. R.I.P. Calvin James Aunt Breanne loves you.

  88. Tommy knowles
