Sleep Eater

Apologies to Gary Wright.

I couldn’t get this idea out of my head.

To the tune of Dream Weaver.

 

I’ve just closed my eyes again.
Climbed aboard the Sleep Eater train.
Eater take away my restfulness of today
And leave no sorrow behind.

Oooooo.. Sleep Eater,
I believe you will eat my sleep tonight.
Ooo Sleep Eater,
I don’t believe that I’ll see the morning light.

Eat all by my sorry sighs
Or maybe I’ll just go in-saa-aaane!

I know sleep is just a fantasy
help me to forget tonight’s pain

Oooooo.. Sleep Eater,
I believe you will eat my sleep tonight.
Ooo Sleep Eater,
I don’t believe that I’ll see the morning light.

Though the dawn may be coming soon,
There still may be some time.
Fly me away god I need some sleep soon,
And let me see some dayy-liiiiight.

Oooooo.. Sleep Eater,
I believe you will eat my sleep tonight.
Ooo Sleep Eater,
I don’t believe that I’ll see the morning light.

Sleeeep EEEATER
You’ll eat my sleep tonight

Sleeeeeeep Eaaaater
Eat my sleep tonight

My sleep tonight
