I was always going to fall asleep early tonight (x2)

I was all white-washed and woven and there by your side
I was always going to fall asleep early tonight

Hell no body falls not when my hand is laid on my heart
At least now when I’m sleeping, I still feel like I’m doing my part

I was all kiss curls and cows licks, got angel delight
I was all kiss curls and cows licks, got angel delight

Then I grew out of the kiss curls and cows lick, got a hairy back
Then I grew out of the kiss curls and cows lick, growing twenty five

I was always going to fall asleep early tonight

Hell no body falls not when my hand is laid on my heart
At least now when I’m sleeping, I still feel like I’m doing my part

I was always going to fall asleep early tonight

    My Interpretation'I was all kiss curls and cows lick, got angel delight' is past tense, he is reflecting on the situation.
    'Then I grew out of the kiss curls and cows lick' is explicitly stating he grew out of the relationship.
    'Got a hairy back' could also be metaphorical, meaning as the relationship went on, it became a reality, they both showed who they really were, or that it became ugly.
    'Then I grew out of the kiss curls and cows lick, growing twenty five', obviously meaning that he was growing older and, therefore, grew out of the relationship.
    Overall, the song 'Sleep Tonight' is about a short-lived relationship with someone.
