Jim Reeves – You Kept Me Awake Last Night lyrics

You kept me awake last night thought about you till broad daylight
If you ask me it just ain't right this keeping me awake at night
How you expect a poor guy to last with nothing but a lonesome past
Though you're gone you're never out of sight you kept me awake last night
I was fooling myself by going to bed cause I saw your face in the book that I read
I hug my pillow and whispered sleep tight but you kept me awake last night
[ piano ]
When twilight came I said goodbye to the sun
Then thought about all those sweet things you've done
And I know the same thing will happen tonight you kept me awake last night
