Last night you'd have caught me sleeping,
I was never more at ease
Despite all the talk of that trip
To Illinois that I couldn't pay for
Last night you'd have caught me thinking
On how on earth you are sleeping
When circumstance has dictated
And your holy eyes I can't avoid.
But I'll never feel guilty for the reasons you think
I should have a hard time sleeping
My friendship rests on Illinois?
When I work hard everyday I don't think
I have to explain every bill we must pay

So when you think that you shouldn't have caught me sleeping
You caught me sleeping, and just keep in mind
I never want to have to say
I made myself feel happy for you
I don't know how this can concern you
The rise of tides and sand
I chose and to those two I owe

I am sorry for letting silence let you know
And I see what everybody thinks.
Know I'm happy for you.
And I can't help from feeling that
Everyone wonders while I sink-
Why doesn't he just take a breath?
Brother please watch my back.
I feel so bad. I can't avoid, but I try.
Knowing deep down inside
I care what my friends think
I am kidding no one.

Silent dogs live in everybody
And I'll understand if you bare your teeth.
Please don't bare them too long.
Don't forget that your my friends
And of course I care what you must think
But I have to say,
I don't think that's what everybody thinks.
You're my friends. my hearts unfair?
I hope that's not what everybody thinks
You're my friends. my hears unfair?
I have to say-thats not the case
