I’ve been tossing and turning
Spent nights counting sheep, my girl
It’s already morning,
I still can’t sleep

And it’s hot in my room
And I'm stuck to the sheets, my girl
I’m soaked from my head down to my feet

But you're here lying next to me
And the melody surrounds you
Encasing you in sound
You're here lying fast asleep
While the sky that hangs above you
Has been shaken to the ground

I was restless like crazy
And I made my mistakes, my girl
I took every chance that I could take
I was running around town
When I smashed on the ground so hard
I got trouble believing I’m still around

As you were gliding 'cross the floor
The candlelight was graceful
Embalming you in glow

If you had made it out the door
You'd consider yourself grateful
But you don't even want to know
And the sirens sing

Oh, go to sleep, my dear baby

You're here lying down in bed
While the dog that loves you dearly
Has been taken to the pound
As you sleep face down like you’re dead
These loving arms that hold you
Will only hold you down
