You better get some sleep tonight
You better get some sleep tonight
Honey, just warn your friends
You better get some sleep tonight

You always watch the sun go down
The same old shadows crawl over town
Those thoughts of you it shivvers me
The moon grows cold in memory

Baby you better get some sleep tonight
All you got to do is close your eyes
You better get some sleep tonight

I wish you baby, all the best
If you turn out like all the rest
This darkness baby, it's chilling me
Stars store down in sympathy

Baby you better get some sleep tonight
All you got to do is close your eyes
Baby you better get some sleep tonight

You better get some sleep tonight
You better get some sleep tonight
Warn all your friends
You better keep them out of sight
You better get some sleep tonight

They robbed you of your dignity
They even steal your heart from me
It ain't revenge, you understand
Baby I just want to know who dealth this hand

Baby, ah that's alright
Baby you better get some sleep tonight
All you got to do is close your eyes
Baby you better get some sleep tonight
You better get some sleep tonight
You better get some sleep tonight

    This song is about drug abuse and drug addicts sleep refers to putting them down resting it's saying how drugs rob you of your dignity and destroy relationships. i think it's a very powerful song it talks about watching the sun go down like depression from a drug life but how it can't stop this song makes me sad.
