Treasure Island

Electric Lady

(Sacramento, California)

I Can't Sleep

I'm too busy thinking about you
You're a distraction from the dreams I should be having
Outside the universe
There's one lonely star undiscovered
It'll probably take me three thousand years to get to it
Hopefully you'll be there waiting for me
With your immortal smile
And your immortal charm
My restless body needs your immortal touch
Without it I must die
Break my heart or put me out of my misery
But before you do
The gods shall remain free
And dance around my lifeless existence
For when an angel dies
There's a moment of praise
But I don't want to die
I want to be with you
I want to sleep soundly in your arms.

The kingdom of heaven is gorgeous
In my head we're vacationing there
And all of our riches are there
And the bed is made of red velvet rose petals
And the pillows are filled with angel feathers
Ah heaven sweet heaven
Will I ever sleep again?
I'd be a fool not to reach for the stars again.

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
