What can we scrape together
We're just a flesh as evidence
Hand fulls of hate
And the bittersweet ambivalence
Cuz I am pushing cobwebs
And I'm folding into myself
Who will find me under this mean sleep
How can the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain
How could the need decieve us into thinking things might change
I had a mean sleep over you
And it hurts coming back to life
You could burn a thousand days
And I would need no other light
You could die a thousand ways
And I'd still love you back to life
But my need's rising angry and my loneliness like quicksand
Who will find me under this mean sleep
How can the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain
How could the need decieve us into thinking things might change
I had a mean sleep over you
And it hurts coming back to life
I am lost to the longing
I am mounded by the memory
Had shut down half my mind
Just to still the space you left behind
Cuz I am pushing cobwebs and i'm folding into myself
Who will find me under this mean sleep
How can the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain
How could the need decieve us into thinking things might change
I had a mean sleep over you
And it hurts coming back to life

    General CommentNice duet. I thought this song would be under Kravitz's name though.

    General CommentWell considering this song only appears on Cree's album and she was the main writer, it makes sense it's in her name, no? ;-)

    General CommentWell, anyone who has the album would know... Its just Lenny sings most of it. I just assumed wrongly.
