Lyrics by Pyeng Threadgill




I know you’re tired
I’m tired too
How can I make you understand?

My daydreams are fading
My appetite increasing

And I love you, it’s true
But a little change could do me and you

I know you don’t like to dance
And you really do take your time
But there’s just one dance you gotta do
If we’re gonna make it through

When I’m half awake, you’re half asleep

Resting beside me
Time just seems to fly
Resting beside me

Beats and pieces. Moody, but don't call it "downtempo." As Baudelaire wrote of Modern Sleeping, "...it is a modern attitude, one that has been much sought after in the modern world. I like to rock it at night."
