Brian Mcknight – Trying Not To Fall Asleep lyrics

[Verse:]
My eyelids are getting very heavy
My will to stay away is getting weak
As I lay here tonight
Mama’s turning out the light
I know that there is so much more to see

[Chorus:]
If I close my eyes I know that I’ll be missing something
A shooting star or something good on the tv
Daddy don’t be mad if you hear me crying
I’m only trying not to fall asleep

[Verse:]
Whatever’s going on outside my window
I’m not tall enough to look out there and see
When things go bump in the night and I’m terrified from fight
I thank God that I have Teddy lying next to me

[Chorus:]
If I close my eyes I know that I’ll be missing something
A shooting star or something good on the tv
Daddy don’t be mad if you hear me crying
I’m only trying not to fall asleep

If I close my eyes I know that I’ll be missing something
A shooting star or something good on the tv
Daddy don’t be mad if you hear me crying
I’m only trying not to fall…
I’m just trying not to fall…
I’m just trying not to fall asleep
