bless my little sleeping pad
i lie down when the weather's getting bad
i get up in the morning with a brand new mind
the big star telling me to go outside
i get up

it's in the corner of the room where the light is low
so in the midday sweat there's a midnight glow
the Bermuda wood floor's only inches beneath
no room between the bed and the wall for my dreams
to fall and die

sometimes to close your eyes is all that saves you
when a day has taken all you had to give
when the weight of the world is on your back
you feel like breaking
lie down beside me
after a while
open your eyes and find a damn good reason to live

there's a ramshackle motor in the backyard shed
where i keep my hands busy to keep my head
coming back to the city after working away
is when i love it the most and i know i'll stay
until i'm older

and the voices of love are coming up from the ground
the green grass telling me to lie on down
and the cauliflower clouds over Germantown
take on the shapes of the animals lost along the way
