There’s a mouse in the kitchen tonight, someone turn the light on,
and I woke in a terrible fright, dreaming of a bygone,
but I feel everything is alright watching you sleep..

There’s a shadow on the ceiling tonight, someone get a broom out,
and I woke in a terrible fright, staring down an old doubt,
but I feel everything is alright watching you sleep…

watching you sleep,
counting your sheep as they wander by, 88, 89
watching you sleep,
making my peace with the world outside..

There’s a devil in my dreaming tonight, he knows where my heart lies,
and I woke with the terrible sight in mind of all my compromise,
but I’m calmed in the elegant light,
dissolved by the delicate sight,
and I believe everything is alright, watching you sleep…

watching you sleep,
counting your sheep as they wander by, 98, 99
watching you sleep,
making my peace with the world outside…

but I’m calmed in the elegant light,
dissolved by the delicate sight,
and I believe everything is alright, watching you sleep…
