I'm Only Sleeping
R. Stevie Moore 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 (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 (There's no need)

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

Lying there and staring at the ceiling
Waiting for a sleepy feeling...

Please, don't spoil my day, I'm miles away
And after all I'm only sleeping

Ooh yeah

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 (Float up stream)

Please, don't wake me, no, don't shake me
Leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping

This man made a 60’s song sound like it’s from the 90s in the 80s.

I love this description so much

Trace Blends

Damn, you just hit that nail on it's noggin!

Traie Rios

Absolutely in love with this song heard this version first and then the Beatles but this is definitely the superior version. His tone and vocals are soothing and timeless!

Saint Babylon

I want this played at my funeral for sure

Kike el Redentor

Good idea! it's perfect

Tangerines are better than Oranges

There's a certain innocence to this version.

Oh wow, R. Stevie doing one of my favourite Beatles' songs.

joe alanouf

yeah the Beatles album is really cool R>. I was watching a intrview with you. from years ago. working with you would be very cool. but i know what you mean. every reason why it would be imposibal. I do what you do. make my own music and sell it. people really love DIY. there are pople who listen to music in there cars and at work. though are the chart hits. and there are people who like to really listen to there music. like when I put a Rod Mckuen poetry album. thats just me and that. no one elce.

@rstevie moore
Happily, I have this one already, though I was always gutted you opted for lead guitar over singing.
