lyrics

Your work seems endless
and you look so very tired
So draw those floor-length curtains shut
lie back, and close your eyes

The kitchen clock was not wrong
It was just saying something new
The compasses are spinning strange
directions just for you

All signs are pointing bedward
and you cannot go wrong
if you hit the pillow
and you don't come back 'til dawn

Don't let friends persuade you
that there is more to do
Just sigh a lone, contented sigh
and take a little snooze

The dreams you've been storing up for years
are not gone
and you've been sleeples far too long

You can excavate the chambers
where forgotten royals slept
Descend the escalator
and prepare for a long trip

You can idle on the platform
'til they carry you away
The ghosts of all your waking hours
will be left behind today

The dreams you've been storing up for years
are not gone
and you've been sleepless far too long
