I'm closing all the curtains
so don’t you even bother
and I’m calling out the murder
but I’m underneath the covers
but who’s fooling who
with this mood like a train
watch me roll over
get out of my way

Chorus:
there’s a knock on my door
but I'm not gonna open it
I'm gonna close my eyes
and maybe it will go away

I want a platinum blonde life
so I keep bleaching out the colors
I try to do what I oughta
but never drink enough water
where did my lover go?
I really wish he could stay
I feel it's empty as a widow
I'm gonna sleep it all away

repeat chorus

I'm gonna sleep all trough the day
I'm gonna asleep my life away
I'm gonna sleep all through the day
I'm gonna sleep myself away
I'm gonna close my eyes and maybe it'll go away

repeat chorus

I'm gonna close my eyes and maybe it will go away

    General Commenti love this song and i think it's one of their better songs on the album. It explains how she's trying to just get rid of a problem so she's trying to bleach out everything and make it perfect again

    i still lurve this song

    General CommentThis is by far the best song on their new CD.

    The music is glamorous and upbeat, like Gwen's dream world, yet there's a slightly dark undertone. The lyrics are actually pretty depressing...how she wants this perfect life so badly she's willing to bleach all the problems out, get rid of the color. How she just wants sleep is showing how she's given up on life.

    General CommentWhen she says "where did my lamb go, i wish she could stay" she is refering to her little "lamb", her dog Magan, who died.

    General CommentNOT Marilyn Monroe. Gwen Stefani is obviously HUGELY inspired by Debbie Harry. Blondie's "Platinum Blonde"s first line of song, "I wanna' be a platinum blonde". You can tell Gwen's love for Debbie. Style. Make-up. They've even covered "Call Me" live. It's just right.
