Steppenwolf – Sleep Lyrics

STEPPENWOLF
Sleep Lyrics

Words and music by George Biondo

Please don’t talk no more

It’s just that I’m half asleep

And not a sudden case of nasty manner
You’ve been here all night

Just waiting for the final line

to make this more than a warm encounter

I’m tired and I want to go to bed

I need some time to rest my weary head

With all your worry about the things I need
Why don’t you let me

Why don’t you let me
Why don’t you let me sleep

Please turn out the light

I don’t care if you stay or go

Just as long as I can get some shut eye

And if I don’t reply to all your mumbling in the dark

It’s your fault that I’m too tired to answer

I’m tired and I want to go to bed

And if there’s one more night like one of these
I need some time to rest my weary head

Then you better let me, you better let me

You better let me sleep
