Idlewild – Let Me Sleep (Next To The Mirror) lyrics
I woke up first this morning
But I know what the world looked like before
I've never seen the dawn
How would I know what you said?
You're always first to go to bed

You're intent on sleeping it off
I know you don't like mirrors
When they reflect on you
Let me sleep, next to the mirror
For every word that you write

They won't mean much as barricades (They hold me down)
I'm sure that you'll be fine
Ten more years of this

I'm sure that you'll be fine
It will nearly be time
It can't take ten more years

You woke up first this morning
You told me that you had a bad dream
Like one never before
My reflection showed that I'm far too critical
What was in it?

Let me sleep next to the mirror
Don't tell me that you don't like
Don't tell me that you don't like mirrors
Looking right through your own reflection

For every word that I write

I'm sure that you'll be fine
They won't mean much as barricades (They hold me down)
Ten more years of this
It will nearly be time
I'm sure that you'll be fine
But it can't take ten more years
