You Should Sleep

Lay down
for a moment
can you stop?
We should stop.

Close your eyes
you are home at last
from the longest night
of the darkest past.

You should sleep (I'm not going anywhere)
You should sleep (I'm not going anywhere)
I'll be right here.

If you should wake
and the sun won't allow you to sleep
I'll puff my chest 'til it blocks out the west to the east

and I'd like nothing more
than to hold back the traffic 'til your last dream is through
I'll break myself apart so I can
start this thing over with you

we can try
to fast
but the die/dye is cast
You should sleep...
