Bedtime Stories – lyrics

The greatest bedtime stories
Only made it halfway through
And the last lines best remembered
Were like the last words that I heard from you.

If I’m the first to close my lips,
Don’t worry, I might just be listening,
Adjusting all my movements
To the rhythm of your breathing.

So sleep well tonight
I know we’re both tired and I’ll be okay
All of this missing you is wearing me out
And tomorrow’s another long day

I guess I’ll just keep waiting
Give my eyes time to stop burning
They’re starting to feel heavy
And the clock display is getting blurry.

So sleep well tonight
I know we’re both tired and I’ll be okay
All of this missing you is wearing me out
And I’ve had it with being awake

I’m dreaming of five thirty
When you’ll creep in almost silently
Then fall asleep immediately
On the right side of my body

The lucky ones see morning
And in mine, I’ll wake up dizzy
From this exhaustion and your dreaming
I think you know the feeling.

So sleep well tonight
I know we’re both tired and I’ll be okay
All of this missing you is wearing me out
This missing you is wearing me out
I know we’re both tired but we’ll be okay.
