Track Name: Coffee Talk
Goodnight starlight.
What's the story morning glory?
Same sleep. Different day.
Just call me when you wake up.
And tell me how you feel. Did you rest well? I'll never tell. I can never tell.
I'll sing some songs. Some songs about sleep. It's such a subject to me…Dreaming.
You only wanted to sleep.
You only wanted to sleep.
You didn't wanna wake up.
You didn't wanna...
Goodnight starlight.
What's the story morning glory?
Same sleep. Different day.
Just call me when you wake up.
And tell me something real. Could you set sail? Could we both bail? I'll never tell.
I'll catch my breath. A breath of fresh air. It's something new to me.
You only wanted to sleep.
You only wanted to sleep.
You didn't wanna wake up.
You didn't wanna…
Goodnight starlight.
What's the story morning glory?
Same sleep. Different day.
Just call me when you wake up.
How about you tell me over coffee about your night?
Track Name: Regardless
I wanna know what your thoughts about the day are.
If i were to promise to open your eyes would you see it through and...
Show me something I've not seen.
Regardless of the way I feel.
Open your heart. Pour it out.
Regardless of the way I feel.
As you wake up from your dreams can you see the early morning light?
The sun always shines on darkest places of your heart so...
Show me something I've not seen.
Regardless of the way I feel.
Open your heart. Pour it out.
Regardless of the way I feel.
'Cause I wanna know everything about you.
Track Name: Most Nights
Most nights I dream of better times and what can be.
I'll break it down for you everything I do in order for me to sleep.
This is what you do in order for you to sleep.
Just stop thinking about it.
Don't worry yourself about it.
Most nights I dream of better times and what can be.
I could have been a sailor or poet, you know it.
So why show it?
I'll break it down for you everything I do in order for me to sleep.
This is what you do in order for you to sleep.
Lock eyes into the basement.
Shut out all of their faces.
Just stay calm and complacent.
No matter how your heart was spent.
Most nights I dream of better times and what can be.
I could have been a sailor or poet, you know it.
So why show it?
Most nights I dream.
Track Name: Waiting
What does today mean when yesterday you said "Tomorrow, just wait. You'll see"? Well, I'm waiting.
Why do you waste my time?
I could be resting my head on the cool side of my pillow.
Don't you know that I can't stand it. I know you planned it.
What does today mean when yesterday you said "Tomorrow, just wait. You'll see"? Well, I'm waiting.
Why do you pull my chain?
I could be counting sheep and catching up with the letter "Z".
Don't you know that I can't stand it. I know you planned it.
I know you know I can't wait.
What does today mean when yesterday you said "Tomorrow, just wait. You'll see"? Well, I'm waiting.
Track Name: Sleep It Off
Night falls on a heavy heart.
There's too much time to think about it all.
I crawl in and out of bed.
It's a waste of time I think to sleep on it.
Why should i go to bed?
Why should i close my eyes?
Night calls on the telephone.
There's too much I can say about it all.
It's a waste of time I think to sleep on it.
Why should i go to bed?
Why should i close my eyes?
'Cause when the morning comes I'll sleep it off.
While the world is wide awake, I'll sleep for goodness sake.
When the morning comes I'll sleep it off.
It's a waste of time I think to sleep on it.
Why should i go to bed?
Why should i close my eyes?
'Cause when the morning comes, I'll sleep it off.
While the world is wide awake, I'll sleep for goodness sake.
Track Name: Waltz
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Sleep So Easy
When you want it, you got it. You get it. You need it.
Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.
On the couch. On the floor. Wherever you are you do it so well.
It's no surprise I'm jealous. I never rest well.
I never understand how you sleep so easy.
Out like a light when you close your eyes.
What's it like? It must be nice.
'Cause I'm dying to know your secrets on how to sleep so easy.
When you want it, you got it. You get it. You need it.
Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.
Radio. TV on. No matter how loud, you do it so well.
It's no surprise I'm jealous. I never rest well.
'Cause I'm dying to know your secrets on how to sleep so easy.
Just close your eyes.
I'm so jealous.
Track Name: Waste Of Time
Why oh why, do we have to sleep at night?
What a waste of time.
Why oh why, do we have to close our eyes?
I watch the clock start over.
Why does time move slower when you stay awake?
Why oh why, do we have to wait for morning?
What a waste of time.
Why oh why, do we have to sleep at night?
I watch the clock start over.
Why does time move slower when you stay awake?
Why oh why, do we have to sleep at night?
Why oh why, do we have to close our eyes?
Why oh why, do we have to wait for morning?
Why oh why, do we have to sleep at night?
Track Name: Sometimes Sunshine (Bonus Track)
Sometimes sunshine leaves me blind.
So I close my eyes and take a nap.
When the day dreams, my eyes become accustomed to the light.
I've been waiting for this moment for sometime 'cause some time is what I need to get back up on my feet.
I've been sleeping. I've been dreaming. I wanna do something.
Sometimes sunshine leaves me blind.
So I close my eyes and take a nap.
How can I make use of all this newfound time on my hands?
Perhaps I'll write a song about all my trouble with my sleep schedule.
I've been trying yet defeated to do something that is needed.
Like soaking up the rays.
Like breathing in fresh air.
Like living without care.
Like crossing the state lines.
Like seeing the skylines.
Like losing track of time.
Sometimes sunshine leaves me blind.
So I close my eyes and take a nap.
Track Name: The Start Of Your Day (Bonus Track)
Wake up.
This is the start of your day.
So tell me what you think about sleeping in 'cause I wanna try it.
Somehow always felt that I needed it.
I can't deny it.
Hey, wake up. It's sunday morning.
You'll sleep your life away.
Why don't you wake up?
Wake Up.
This is the start of your day.
So tell me what's so great about sleeping in 'cause I'm gonna try it.
Somehow. Some way.
I'm not gonna fight it.
Hey, wake up. It's sunday morning.
You'll sleep your life away.
Why don't you wake up?
So tell me what you think about sleeping in 'cause I wanna try it.
Wake up.
So tell me what you think about sleeping in 'cause i wanna try it.
I'm gonna try it.
