When I wake up early in the morning
Lift my head, I'm still yawning
When I'm in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream)

Please, don't wake me
No, don't shake me
Leave me where I am
I'm only sleeping

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
I don't mind, I think they're crazy
Runnin' everywhere at such a speed
'Til they find there's no need (there's no need)

Please, don't spoil my day
I'm miles away
And after all
I'm only sleeping

Keepin' an eye on the world going by my window
Takin' my time

Lyin' there and staring at the ceiling
Waiting for a sleepy feeling

Please, don't spoil my day
I'm miles away
And after all
I'm only sleeping

Keepin' an eye on the world going by my window
Takin' my time

When I wake up early in the morning
Lift my head, I'm still yawning
When I'm in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed, float up stream (float up stream)

Please, don't wake me
No, don't shake me
Leave me where I am
I'm only sleeping

    General CommentIf you're tripping, waiting to sleep, the visuals are still around and i heard it's hard to sleep. "Staring at the ceiling, waiting for the sleepy feeling" means the ceiling is tweaking him out a bit and it keeps him up. he's pissed about waking up cuz i hear dreams are awesome when u trip, and everyone thinks he's lazy cuz he wont get up, but he thinks they're crazy cuz he is obviously tired from tripping.
