about

A cover of The Beatles classic from the recording session for Sonder, out May 12th.

lyrics

When I wake up in the morning
Lift my head
I'm still yawning
When I'm in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed
Float upstream

Please don't wake me no don't shake me
Leave me where I am
I'm only sleeping

Please don't spoil my day I'm miles away
And after all I'm only sleeping

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
I don't mind I think they're crazy
Running everywhere at such a speed
Till they find there's no need

Please don't spoil my day I'm miles away
And after all I'm only sleeping

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time
Lying there and staring at the ceiling
Waiting for a sleepy feeling

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time when I wake up early in the morning
Lift my head I'm still yawning

When I'm in the middle of a dream
Stay in bed float upstream

Please don't wake me no don't shake me
Leave me where I am
I'm only sleeping
