This song is a bit of of a lullaby for grownups. I wrote and performed it immediately following a nap, with the full intention of resuming my slumber afterwards. It's slow, dreamy, and just fine with being imprecise. I picked up my guitar and began to play, and the song emerged from me in mere moments, as if it had arrived while I was asleep. I played it once into a microphone, and that was that. There was time to spare to take the song's advice.


Wake up tired
The faces of the the angels
Hovering up above me and you
I am one of them
And you're one of them too
Let's go back to sleep
Let's go back to sleep
Let's go back to sleep
For a little while

Lying here
My eyes are open and I peer into
The boxes we're placed into
And I'm in one of them
You're in one of them too
Let's just go back to sleep
Let's go back to sleep
Can we go back to sleep
For a little while?
