Willy Mason – Not Lie Down lyrics

I'm Not gonna lie down in that bed tonight
No I'm not gonna lie down in that bed tonight
No I'm not gonna lie down in that bed
Let them covers clutch me and pull these thoughts out of my head.

I'm not gonna feel so all alone tonight
No I'm not gonna feel so all alone tonight
No I'm not gonna feel so all alone
With That empty space beside me and the city just a drone out the window.

I'm Not gonna roll over tonight
No I'm not gonna roll over tonight
No I'm not gonna roll over and over
To shake these demons from their hold.

Not gonna close my eyes tonight
No I'm not gonna close my eyes tonight
No I'm not gonna close my eyes
Let my thoughts form pictures that I care not to describe
And oh how they writhe.

Already learned my lesson babe
You know that you are right
Already learned my lesson babe
You know that you are right
God damn you, you're always right
Why the hell can't I remember that, each time we start to fight.

Calling you, it's midnight
Why aren't you home?
Yeah I'm calling you it's midnight
Why aren't you home?
Why, why, why, why aren't you home?
Guess I'm just gonna have to spend another night here all alone.
