I’M ONLY SLEEPING- John Lennon

John Lennon wrote this song as a tribute to staying in bed…and the alienation that most of us dreamers experience in a world of dreamers who have forgotten they are dreaming.

I’m only sleeping lyrics:

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 up stream.
Please don’t wake me, no don’t shake me, Leave me where I am, 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 on my way. 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 the sleepy feeling…
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,
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 Up stream.
Please don’t wake me, no don’t shake me, leave me where I am
I’m only sleeping…
