sleep

 “Sleep”

Hear your heartbeat

Beat a frantic pace

And it’s not even seven AM

You’re feeling the rush of anguish settling

You cannot help showing them in

Hurry up then

Or you’ll fall behind and

They will take control of you

And you need to heal the hurt behind your eyes

Fickle words crowding your mind

 

So

Sleep, sugar, let your dreams flood in

Like waves of sweet fire, you’re safe within

Sleep, sweetie, let your floods come rushing in

And carry you over to a new morning

 

Try as you might

You try to give it up

Seems to be holding on fast

It’s hand in your hand

A shadow over you

A beggar for soul in your face

Still it don’t mater if you won’t listen

If you won’t let them follow you

You just need to heal

Make good all your lies

Move on and don’t look behind

 

So

Sleep, sugar, let your dreams flood in

Like waves of sweet fire, you’re safe within

Sleep, sweetie, let your floods come rushing in

And carry you over to a new morning

 

Day after day

Fickle visions messing with your head

Fickle, vicious

Sleeping in your bed

Messing with your head

Fickle visions

Fickle, vicious:

 

Sleep, sugar, let your dreams flood in

Like waves of sweet fire, you’re safe within

Sleep, sweetie, let your floods come rushing in

And carry you over to a new morning
