Agnes Obel – Broken Sleep lyrics
[Intro]
Ooh-ooh-ah, ooh-ooh-ah

[Verse 1]
Broken sleep, all too human
A malady
It's gazing through when I

[Chorus]
(Dream me a dream soft as a pillow)
(Dream me a dream)
(Deep in the night 'til the morning will follow)
Dream me a dream
(Dream me a dream)
Dream me a dream
(Dream me a dream)
Dream me a dream

[Verse 2]
Shapes of smoke, all too human
They grow like titans

[Chorus]
I would like to fall, silence every call
(Will you level me with a dream?)
If I will (Fall) fall, fall
I would like to fall (Fall asleep)
Silence every call (Will you level me with a dream?)
If I will (Fall), I will fall

[Verse 3]
Twisted rope defies all I know (Ooh)
It holds my reason

[Chorus]
(Dream me a dream soft as a pillow)
I will (Dream me a dream)
Dream me a dream
(Deep in the night 'til the morning will follow)
I will (Dream me a dream)
Dream me a dream

[Verse 4]
Sea of trees calling humans
Hang like leaves from the willow

[Chorus]
I would like to fall, silence every call
(Will you level me with a dream?)
If I will (Fall) fall, fall
I would like to fall (Fall asleep)
Silence every call (Will you level me with a dream?)
If I will (Fall), I will fall

[Post-Chorus]
Take my word for it
Ooh, in the dark, in the dark
In the dark, words can follow
