Boomtown Rats – Sleep (Fingers' Lullaby) lyrics

I'm so wired,
Very tired,
Why can't I
Close my eyes.

Times speeding
It's day, it's night, it's night, it's day
And it's time
I went to sleep.
Chorus:
Tired and sick, I'm sick and tired,
I'm falling on my feet
Tired and sick, I'm sick and tired,
Why can't I close my eyes and go to sleep?
It's not as easy as it seems.

Sssh
Draw the blinds
Sssh
Kill that light,
Sssh
Put down that book,
Sssh
The phone rings
Sssh
I'm not here
Sssh
I'm off the hook

(I'm so wired)
Close your eyes,
(Very tired)
Put down your head,
(Why can't I)
Go to sleep
Close my eyes.

If I took enough of these red things,
Get some permanent sleep, blue things,
What lullabys would you sing, white things

I wanna go
It's a long drive home
Don't wanna stay,
One more minute

Close my eyes and go to sleep
It's not as easy as it seems,
Close my eyes and go to sleep
I'm jumping fences, counting sheep
I'm counting fences, jumping sheep
I'm fencing jumpsuits in my sleep
I'm counting fencing, I can't think

*Written by Johnny Fingers
*From the album "The Fine Art Of Surfacing"
