Are You Just Sleeping?

Album: A Northern Soul (2018)
  • [Verse 1]
    I'll bring the whiskey
    I'll meet you there in the kitchen
    And through cigarette smoke
    You'll tell a joke, and I'll listen

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Put the world to rights
    God, how I loved every one of those nights

    [Chorus]
    But are you just sleeping?
    Will you wake up?
    We've still got plenty of things to talk about
    Are you just sleeping?
    Is this a dream?
    I've still got far too many problems to figure out
    So don't go to bed
    'Cause I am not ready, to say goodnight yet

    [Verse 2]
    You bring the music
    I'll bring the songs and we'll sing them
    'Cause we're the real stars, no one knows who we are
    But we'll show them

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Put the world to rights
    God, how I loved every one of those nights

    [Chorus]
    But are you just sleeping?
    Will you wake up?
    We've still got plenty of things to talk about
    Are you just sleeping?
    Is this a dream?
    I've still got far too many problems to figure out
    So don't go to bed
    'Cause I am not ready, to say goodnight yet

    [Bridge]
    Didn't you tell me, hundreds of times
    That I'd be ok, I'd survive
    Didn't you say, you would always be there
    Now you're just a voice in my mind

    [Chorus]
    But are you just sleeping?
    I wish you'd wake up
    'Cause I've still got plenty of things I need to talk about
    Are you just sleeping?
    Is this a dream?
    I've still got far too many problems I need you to figure out
    So don't go to bed
    Don't rest your head
    Don't go to bed
    'Cause I am not ready, to say goodnight yet
