Sleeping - Richard Manuel, J.R.Robertson

    For the life we chose
    In the evening we rose
    Just long enough to be lovers again
    And for nothing more
    The world was too sore
    To live in.

    Sad old ships, 
    A morning eclipse,
    I spent my whole life guessing,
    Then I turned from the sun
    And saw everyone

    The hoot owl and his song
    Will bring you along,
    Where else on earth would you wanna go ?
    We can leave all this hate
    Before it's too late,
    Why would we wanna come back at all ?

    Cobwebs on my pillow,
    I'm found in the willow,
    I'd spend my whole life sleeping.
    To be called by noon
    Is to be called too soon

    The storm is passed,
    There is peace at last,
    I'll spend my whole life sleeping.
    Now there's not a sound,
    No one to be found

    The shepherd and his sheep
    Will wind you to sleep,
    Where else on earth would you wanna go ?
    To a land of wonder
    When you go under,
    Why would we want to come back at all ?
