You gotta bring the bread to the table
You gotta bring the bread on home
So you dance for the rain and the sun and the wind
and you pray for your crops to grow

And every morning 'til sundown
you work your hands to the bone
You keep your head high and your eyes wide,
diamond in your mind and you bring the bread home

But when I'm asleep
when I'm asleep
I'm not anyone
you’re not anywhere
When I'm asleep
when I'm asleep
I'm not anyone
you’re not anywhere

And you know I gotta win your heart, babe
You know I gotta win your love
so I promise the moon and the stars and the sea
and I pray to the gods above

With every beat my heart's skipping
you'll know what I'm made of
I keep the light on and the bed warm -
shelter from the storm - and I'm keepin' your love

But when I'm asleep
when I'm asleep
I'm not anyone
you're not anywhere
When I'm asleep
when I'm asleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

And my mouth
doesn't talk back to me
and my plans don't have to be
And my back doesn't feel gravity
and my dreams
go back to sleep, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, oh

You know I gotta make it to heaven
You know I gotta save my soul
so I marry the Lord and I drink from the scars
and I swear off my worldly ways

And every second a baby
is born through his mother's bones
And torn from grace
gotta find your faith
or the devil's gonna claim your soul

Sleep
Oh, oh, ooh-ooh, oh-oh-oh
Sleep
Oh, oh, ooh-ooh, oh-oh-oh

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

Go back to sleep

Oh, oh, ooh-ooh, oh-oh-oh
