Della Mae – Sleep With One Eye Open lyrics
[Verse 1]
I just found out today
The little game you play
While I been sleeping all my life away
You been stepping, so they say
Between midnight and day
And I'm gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

[Chorus]
From now on (From now on)
All night long (All night long)
You ain’t gonna have a chance to treat your momma wrong
You been stepping, so they say
Between midnight and day
And I'm gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

[Verse 2]
There's a honky-tonk down the road
It’s just about a mile or so
And I understand that's where you spend your time
Well baby, I got news for you
Your little game is through
From now on, baby, I'm gonna draw the line

[Chorus]
From now on (From now on)
All night long (All night long)
You ain't gonna have a chance to treat your momma wrong
You been stepping, so they say
Between midnight and day
And I'm gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

[Verse 3]
You thought you were being smart
Breaking my little heart
And leaving me to spend my time alone
Well, baby, you'll find out today
It just don't work that way
You've started a little game that two can play

[Chorus]
From now on (From now on)
All night long (All night long)
You ain’t gonna have a chance to treat your momma wrong
You been stepping, so they say
Between midnight and day
And I’m gonna sleep with one eye open from now on

[Chorus]
From now on (From now on)
All night long (All night long)
You ain't gonna have a chance to treat your momma wrong
You been stepping, so they say
Between midnight and day
And I’m gonna sleep with one eye open from now on
Yeah, you better sleep with one eye open from now on
