lyrics

I ain’t all that sleepy baby
I ain’t all that sleepy baby

I’ll be so glad
When the sun goes down
Grow my hair out
When the sun goes
I will carry my weight in gold even if you mind it
Watch me while you still be minding me
Getting what i want

That’s when i get to
Be by my baby
Dream by my baby’s side
I get to be by my baby
I get to dream by my baby’s side

How many roads you thought you’d string along
While still writing on the wall
Can’t deny the truth you bring
Could surely break them all
Instead we’ll meet by the river side
Yeah Imma wait by the river
Cause I
I will bury myself in gold even if you mind
Watch me while you still be minding me
Getting what i want

That’s when i get to
Be by my baby
Dream by my baby s side
I get to dream by my baby s side

Be by my baby
I get to be by my baby’s side
Be by my baby
I get to be
I get to dream
By my baby baby baby

Who’d a thought our mind could go on
Stretch that far
Close your eyes and come with me
Let’s watch it fall
Perhaps look over for some comfort
Why the city burning
City burning down
Feels good

Meaning while I get to dream by my baby
I get to dream
I get to dream

Cause I
I ain’t all that sleepy baby
Just wanna lie down
I ain’t all that sleep baby
Not gonna lie
