"Sleeping" as written by Robbie Robertson and Richard Manuel....
For the life we chose in the evening we rose
Just long enough to be lovers again
And for nothing more, the world was too sore to live in

Sad old ships, a morning eclipse
I spent my whole life guessing
Then I turned from the sun, and saw everyone searching

The hoot owl and his song will bring you along
Where else on earth would you wanna go?
We can leave all this hate before it's too late
Why would we wanna come back at all?

Cobwebs on my pillow, I'm found in the willow
I'd spend my whole life sleeping
To be called by noon is to be called too soon today

The storm is passed, there is peace at last
I'll spend my whole life sleeping
Now there's not a sound, no one to be found anywhere

The shepherd and his sheep, will wind you to sleep
Where else on earth would you wanna go?
To a land of wonder, when you go under
Why would we want to come back at all?
