Do You Sleep

Do You Sleep?

Song Notes
There’s this dual emotional thing. Half is when you’re that involved with somebody — you eat, sleep, and breathe the person: the other half is when the relationship is over — on the one hand you’re still longing for this person to want you the same way, but on the other hand you don’t ever want to see them again. This song explores the full range of emotions you go through in and after a relationship.

Lyrics
Do you eat, sleep, do you breathe me anymore?
Do you sleep, do you count sheep anymore?
Do you sleep anymore?

Do you take plight on my tongue like lead?
Do you fall gracefully into bed anymore?

I saw you as you walked across my room.
You looked out the window, you looked at the moon.
And you sat on the corner of my bed, and
you smoked with the ghost in the back of my head.

And I don’t know, and I don’t care
if I ever will see you again.
I don’t know, and I don’t care
if I ever will be there.

Do you eat, sleep, do you breathe me anymore?
Do you sleep, do you keep me anymore?

You kick my foot under the table,
I kick you back;
I can’t say I’m able to
stand for you or
fall for you ever again.
Wish for a perfect setting?
Wishing that I am letting you
take me where you want me
all over again?

You can’t give yourself absolutely to someone else.
And I don’t know, and I don’t care
if I ever will see you again.
I don’t know, and I don’t care
if I ever will be there.

I saw you as you walked across my room.
You looked out the window, you looked at the moon.
And you sat on the corner of my bed, and
you smoked with the ghost in the back of my head.

Do you eat, sleep, do you breathe me anymore?
Do you sleep, do you count sheep anymore?
Do you sleep anymore?

I don’t know, and I don’t care if I ever will be there.
