Something To Sleep To

Album: The Spirit Room (2001)
  • She's his yellow brick road
    Leading him on
    And letting him go as far
    as she lets him go
    Going down to nowhere

    She puts on her make-up
    The same way she did yesterday
    Hoping everything's the same
    But everything has changed

    In my mind
    Everything we did was right
    Open your eyes, I'll still be by your side
    How could I ever have been so blind?
    You give me something to sleep to
    at night

    He wakes up to the sound
    So scared that she's leaving
    He wishes she were still
    asleep next to him
    Hoping she will change

    In my mind
    Everything we did was right
    Open your eyes, I'll still be by your side
    How could I ever have been so blind?
    You give me something to sleep to
    at night

    You give me something to sleep to
    And all I know is
    You give me something to dream to when I'm all alone and blue
    Don't leave me now [Repeats]

    In my mind
    Everything we did was right
    Open your eyes, I'll still be by your side
    How could I ever have been so blind?
    You give me something to sleep to
    Something to sleep to
    Something to sleep to at night Writer/s: JENIFER ALLAN HAGIO, JOHN SHANKS, MICHELLE BRANCH, MICHELLE JACQUET BRANCH

  • George from Calumet City, IlVery nice song!
  • Busta Juss from Sopo, NjU can tell this song was Beatles-inspired...that piano style rox. She also used some backwards tracks towards the end of the song, so Beatles-esque, this song is my ultimate fav. of The Spirit Room!!Next in line is "Drop in the Ocean"!
