It was almost ten till two
You and I had had a fight
I hadn’t slept a wink since you
Rolled over and said goodnight
I’ve heard it said two people in love
Should never go to bed mad
But they never said nothin ‘bout going to bed
Feeling devastated and sad
Well, you were lying fast asleep
While I was still up counting sheep
You said “There’s nothing more to say
And I’m too tired anyway”
You were lying fast asleep
While I was still up counting sheep
How can you sleep so peacefully
While I go over all the things you said to me?
God, I hate it when we fight
Did you mean the things you said?
They’re gonna keep me up all night
Echoing inside my head
Ooh, I’ve heard it said two people in love
Should never go to bed mad
Well, I’m not mad, baby, but how can I sleep
With a heart that’s aching this bad?
And you’re just an inch away
But it feels more like a mile
I was hoping you would stay
Awake for just a little while
Honey, we could work it out
Or at least give it a try
Sick of staring at the walls
I wanna stare into your eyes
You were lying fast asleep
While I was crying, trying not to make a peep
