Sam Williams – Shuteye Lyrics

Lately, it’s been long days and longer nights
The sandman and I always fight
The man on the moon won’t turn off his
Bright white light
I’ve been so far gone for far too long
The clock ticks slow and the the heartbreak’s wrong
I ain’t sleepin’, I hate sleepin’
On my own

So I flip the pillow, pull the cover
I ain’t had a good slumber all summer
I’ve been askin’, “Father, give me rest”

Whenever I shuteye
I shatter on the inside
My mind’s wide open, heart keeps goin’ on
Whenever I shuteye
I lay and think about your brown eyes
How I made them weep, now I just can’t seem to sleep
Whenever I shuteye, can’t shut off
Layin’ awake with my thoughts
Thinkin’ ’bout the love that I’ve lost, oh woah
I can’t get no shuteye no more

No more
No more

Now I lay me down to toss and turn
Drivin’ off all my bridges burned
If I die before I sleep
Will you be someone who mourns me?

Whenever I shuteye
I shatter on the inside
My mind’s wide open, heart keeps goin’ on
Whenever I shuteye
I lay and think about your brown eyes
How I made them weep, now I just can’t seem to sleep
Whenever I shuteye, can’t shut off
Layin’ awake with my thoughts
Thinkin’ ’bout the love that I’ve lost, oh woah
I can’t get no shuteye no more

Whenever I shuteye
I shatter on the inside
My mind’s wide open, heart keeps goin’ on
Whenever I shuteye
I lay and think about your brown eyes
How I made them weep, now I just can’t seem to sleep
Whenever I shuteye, can’t shut off
Layin’ awake with my thoughts
Thinkin’ ’bout the love that I’ve lost, oh woah
I can’t get no shuteye no more

No more, no more (No more)
No more, no more (No more)
I can’t get no, I can’t get no
I can’t get no shuteye no more
No more, no more (No more)
No more, no more (No more)
I can’t get no shuteye no more
