about

This is kinda my tribute to the Monkees. Well, I wrote it with the Monkees on my mind.

lyrics

too busy falling backwards
to see the light around her
sleep softly in the shadow
(i'm sleeping in the shadow
i'm sleeping in the shadow)

now curse the operator
whose line has complicated
a simple quiet hello
(i should've just said hello
i should've just said hello)

you know that i'll be
sleeping on the floor
that's where you'll find me
you know that i'll be
coming back for more
so what are you doing

well, i spent all night in a two step dance
slow to move, never took the chance
i'll turn around now before you are gone


too busy undertaking
the only plan worth making
sleep softly here tomorrow
(i'll sleep again tomorrow
i'll sleep again tomorrow)

you know that i'll be
sleeping on the floor
that's where you'll find me
you know that i'll be
coming back for more
so what are you doing

well, i spent all night in a two step dance
slow to move, never took the chance
i'll turn around now before you are gone
