Blondie – Sound Asleep lyrics

Close your eyes and you will see
Micro-flashing neon lights
Open your eyes and you will see
It still looks like the same thing

Lie and wait for sleep and listen
To your heartbeat, too fast for sleep

Close your eyes and you will see
The sound asleep

I want to go, I want to grow
I want to go down to go to sleep
Your frame of reference
Is my swimming pool

My mind swimming pool
Still looks like the China Sea

Pool to sea and finally
The sound asleep

Feel the moist sense in your face
Twist, relax, remembering

Everything that went down and will
Go down, I want to go down to sleep

Insomnia, no sleep disease
Petty's parking, feed me please

Lie and wait for sleep and listen
To your heartbeat, too fast for sleep
