When I wake up early in the morning,
Lift my head, I’m still yawning.
When I’m in the middle of a dream,
Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream)
Please don’t wake me, no, don’t shake me
Leave me where I am, I’m only sleeping.

Everybody seems to think I’m lazy.
I don’t mind, I think they’re crazy.
Running everywhere at such a speed,
Till they find there’s no need (there’s no need)
Please don’t spoil my day, I’m miles away,
And after all, I’m only sleeping.

Keeping an eye on the world floating by my window,
Taking my time.
Lying there and staring at the ceiling,
Waiting for a sleepy feeling.

Please don’t spoil my day, I’m miles away,
And after all, I’m only sleeping.
Keeping an eye on the world floating by my window,
Taking my time.
Lying there and staring at the ceiling,
Waiting for a sleepy feeling.

Please don’t spoil my day, I’m miles away
And after all, I’m only sleeping.
Keeping an eye on the world floating by my window,
Taking my time.

When I wake up early in the morning,
Lift my head, I’m still yawning.
When I’m in the middle of a dream,
Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream),
Please don’t wake me, no, don’t shake me,
Leave me where I am, I’m only sleeping.

    General Commentohhh my god I love this song, I was so psyched when I saw that Straylight had done it. It's pretty much the theme song for my twin and I. :)
