  • 4:55, everybody else is snoring
    My heavy eyes, I can never seem to close 'em
    My running mind, just can't catch it when it's going
    Is it late at night or is it early in the morning?

    Only
    So many sheep a girl can count
    Patchouli candles burning out
    I try to meditate it all away
    But damn it, it's too quiet now
    Daylight helps distract my head
    Monsters hide under my bed
    They bother me with all kinds of things
    Like where do I go when I'm dead?

    Is it too much to ask for a sweet dream?
    Need a step back from my feelings
    Life is not so bad when I'm sleeping
    Is it too much to ask, too much to ask for a
    Sweet dream?
    For a sweet dream

    6:58, sun's peeking through the curtains
    I drift away, suddenly the wheels are turning
    Songs are in my head, scary thoughts begin to worsen
    Once I'm wide awake, it's too hard to reverse it

    Chirping
    Birds are flying 'round my house
    Patchouli candles burning out
    I try to meditate it all away
    But damn it, it's too quiet now
    Daylight helps distract my head
    Monsters hide under my bed
    They bother me with all kinds of things
    Like that one stupid thing I said

    Is it too much to ask for a sweet dream? (Sweet dream)
    Need a step back from my feelings (feelings)
    Life is not so bad when I'm sleeping
    Is it too much to ask, too much to ask for a
    Sweet dream?
    For a sweet dream
    Sweet dream
    For a sweet dream

    Sandman, can you visit me?
    All I want is a sweet dream

    8:31, I'm slurring every word now
    I pray this cold coffee helps me with the rebound
    How does everybody I know know how to sleep sound?
    When we're all a mess, I guess the only way out

    Is a sweet dream (sweet dream, sweet dream)
    Is a sweet dream, ah
    Sweet dream, oh yeah
    Is a sweet dream (ah) Writer/s: Alessia Caracciolo, Caroline Ailin, Jason Evigan, Jon Levine, Spencer Stewart
