Joe Budden – In My Sleep lyrics
Baby girl told me in my sleep I was talking
So it's only natural I ask her what I said (said)
She said she woke up when she heard
But she was so damn tired she couldn't make out a word(word)
She said she was tryna see if eventually I was screaming a name of a bird (bird)
I told her that's absurd (surd)
And then gave her the face like word
And then she replied
Yeah and said it was quite weird.
Said she was type scared.

I said that's a side effect that you hear
When you trade bad dreams for some for some great nightmares (mares)
When I closed my eyes (eyes)
I escaped the poltergeist.
My escape from reality just what I needed
Bring me to a place where shawty never cheated
And even if she tried and succeeded
Then this other world wouldn't even get heated

Fuck the details I don't care about why
I chilling with my grandmother, she ain't die
I was browsing online and see mike on a banner
That said you could be like me and beat cancer
Anything I touch I'd feel
No infection but it seem so real
Was Leaving out the casino with a nympho
Yes Ray it could be so simple
Here's how I arrive with a roller with my kin folk

Learn how to build me a house with no windows
And that's when I think I saw a ribbon in the sky
But it wasn't from and intro.
Cuz where am at there's no rules once they got
They still got love from miss info.
She said in my sleep I'll be laughing, but shit be funny to me
Look my ice cream was 200 degrees
If it dripped I get a hole in my dungarees.
See my enmity is my protection (wad up).
Me and hip-hop have not connection (wad up)

Which got me to reflect and is that
Why the mirror wouldn't show my reflection?
When I close my eys there's no dollars
You could scratch that one as an excuse.
And why folks do the things they do
Or why people act so brand new.
I had wings on flying out of prison with a ratchet
Was only there cuz someone snitch
Look no one's poor nor one's rich
Just My way of creeping if life is a bitch

Took a wall on the ceiling just to get my mind right
That was yesterday (so) so in hindsight
Since I was able to hull over
Took it as God telling I'll never fall off
Got rid of name brand in jewelry (why)
Most people just use it as medicine
Like it could take them somewhere
They aint never been

But here you better off not better than
Stuck in a room with an elephant
Open the closet and death got my skeleton
And a combo with a man with no ears
And all of a sudden everything became so clear
Have no fear
I just won a first class trip to nowhere
Erybody goes there
But they don't stay the whole year
Me I got 365 shows there

My girl said in my sleep I'll walking
So I asked baby "where I go"
She said I be walking slow
She don't never wanna get out of bed
So she don't know
I went to see a man walking on water
Asked if he ever get things back in order
I've been there 2 years over a quarter
But everytime I open my eyes it's like torture

She said please I gave you a whole nother whole
For you to go do with as you please
Just so you appeased
Mixed with a couple of songs about real life
While you make believe
So I teleported outta there with a grin, when a bum
With a mansion, invited me in the in the politic about politics
Said something about Def Jam
I ain't acknowledge it

I went to see a virgin with aids
Yeah, I thought about smashing that
Yeah her ass was phat
So appealing tattoe on her inner thigh
Says she doing better that she was feeling (feeling)
I think I've seen shawty before
Maybe in a club or something lil
Maybe in vip
But wasn't nobody there but me
And the club was all red (red)

Then she start playing with my head (head)
And then I caved (caved)
Then I asked shawty wats her name
And it was weird cuz she fucked around and disappeared
Like what a cruel joke
Cig lit but from it was no smoke
Flicked in ashtray and seemed task face

Slashed through a school hall on a half day
Was getting chased couldn't tell by who
Then a hallway turned in a cliff (what else).
Screaming pilf before I was dead
Some coward got my hand out that bed
Baby girl told me in my sleep so I was screaming
So I said that's a lie.
She put her right hand in the sky
And said you was but I don't know why
Gotta go good bye (good bye)
