"Can't Sleep" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
I can’t sleep
I’ll keep watch while you do, baby
And I’ll look through the empty lines in the blinds
And if he comes back, my love
I’ll kill him if he does
If he comes back, my love
I’ll kill him if he does
Did he watch us walk into your house together drunk, not afraid
And you left your door open all last summer
And the nights, they just fade
And I don’t think I’ve ever slept better
It’s the price to pay
Follow his footprints in the snow
And what will we learn, follow them to the homeless shelter
Or to your next door neighbour, until they fade away
And please don’t cry, everything will be alright
And I’ll stay up all night to make sure it is
My eyelids, oh they’re getting so heavy
And your breath, it’s so deep
I think it’s putting me to sleep
And the more I drink
I sink into the bottoms of my feet
And the more I drink
I sink into the bottoms of my feet
And in my dreams, I don’t need these crazies or creeps
And in my dreams, I don’t need these crazies or creeps
And then it seems, I gotta hear the floor creak
And I’m wide awake and you’re in my arms
