Jesca Hoop – When I'm Asleep lyrics

You gotta bring the bread to the table
You gotta bring the bread on home
So you dance for the rain and the sun and the wind
And you pray for your crops to grow

And every morning till sundown
You work your hands to the bone
You keep your head high and your eyes wide
Diamond in your mind and you bring the bread home

But when I'm asleep
When I'm asleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

But when I'm asleep
When I'm asleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

And you know I gotta win your heart babe
You know I gotta win your love
So I promise the moon and the stars and the sea
And I pray to the stars above

With every beat my hearts skipping
You'll know what I'm made of
I keep light on and the bed warm
Shelter from the storm and I'm keepin' our love

But when I'm asleep
When I'm asleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

When I'm asleep
When I'm asleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

And my mouth doesn't talk back to me
And my plans don't have to be
And my back doesn't feel gravity
And my dreams go back to sleep

And you know I gotta make it to heaven
You know I gotta save my soul
So I marry the lord and I drink from the scars
And I swear off my worldly ways

And every second a baby
Is born through his mother's bones
And torn from grace gotta find your faith
Or the devil's gonna claim your soul

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
I'm not anyone
You're not anywhere...
