Carrack, Paul - Sleep On It Lyrics




Girl I've been listening
You made it very clear
That I've done something wrong
I'm just not sure what it might have been
Every second we spend
Just going around and around again
Will they make a difference
Or am I stumbling in the dark

You know I want to make it right
Willing to talk if it takes all night
Maybe it's better if we try
To settle down and let it lie

Why don't we sleep on it
Everything will be alright
Girl I don't wanna fight
Why don't we sleep on it tonight

Why don't we sleep on it
Cuddle up and make it right
Why don't you dim the light
And we'll just sleep on it tonight

I know it's down to me
It's my responsibility
I just want your happiness
If I've done wrong, then I confess
But there's nothing lost
And I would never count the cost
Tomorrow's another day
I think we've said all we can say

Why don't we sleep on it
I don't really want to fight
Why don't we dim the light
And just sleep on it tonight

Why don't we sleep on it
Cuddle up and make it right
Everything will be alright
If we sleep on it tonight

No matter what you think about me
I'll still be here when the morning comes
Oh yes I will

Why don't we sleep on it
Baby I don't want to fight
Why don't you dim the light
Can we sleep on it tonight

  19. SwiSS Octogon Templars

    Paul Carrick shame on you doing the " all seeing eye of Horus" on your album cover, just like the rest of the sell out musicians, made to do the Babylonian symbology by their handlers😬 check out all the other musicians 🎵that do the same satanic shit apart from that great singer

    THE BEST GREATWISH I HAD HEARD HIM YEARS OGOWILL FOR A FEW YEARS YET IHOPE

  22. Stephanie Civic

    What a voice, I love it so much. Still sounds fantastic after all these years. Not many artists from back then were able to keep their voices sounding good into this century.

  23. Mark

    Saw Paul at Ipswich last year, come back soon.

    FYI:
    When you have a new song, all you want to do is keep hearing it.
    I kan't wait to blast this song up while I'm in the city with all the strong tall buildings surrounding me. 🎼 🏛🏤🏫🏨🏢🌇🌆🌉🏙💋🎶

  32. Ann Taylor

    After all these years may I say that he's voice is still the great Paul Carrack! Right now, I'm being very personal with this song coz he's voice is pure sexy.

    Will give reviews on how much it touches me because right now it's in my soul ........ this is on REPEAT, REPLAY and with me now for days ❤💛💜💚

  33. William Grant

    A True Artist !

  34. Danny Gillespie

    Reminds me of the smooth sound of Philadelphia.

  35. Lisa Spears

    Paul I grew up with. Sweet memorys and bad ass grooves. yes he's a favourite still !!!

  36. Blue

    I just love this music! Thank you very much! I'm a bit ashamed to confess that only lately, at my old age,  I've realised how good it is.  I listen to it again and again...and it makes me very happy every time. So relaxing!  Greetings from the snowy woods in the North!

  37. David McLoughlin

    Advice from the master. This song it could end thousands of divorces and endless days of misery. Paul Carrack is a master vocalist, musician and philosopher.

    Lisa Spears

    David McLoughlin so so sweet and Inspire me has a groove that you can't set still... Whew nice !!

  38. Synchro

    do i hear steve wonder playing the harmonica? maybe, in the secret live of plants?

    stevesmahalo

    Hi Synchro, that would be Paul playing the melodica.

  39. Martin Green

    Beautiful song and an amazing voice. I wish somebody would upload the version Paul did live on Radio 2, it was amazing.

    Patrick Homes

    I was lucky to see him live! WOW! Get the chance please go😀

    Blue

    I do envy you! I would have liked to see him last March in London but couldn't make it... Sigh!

  40. David Tillis

    This song is rocking my world!

  41. Ian Brown

    Girl I’ve been listening
    You made it very clear
    That I’ve done something wrong
    I’m just not sure what it might have been

    ​Every second we spend
    Just going around and around again
    Will it make a difference
    Or am I somewhere in the dark

    ​You know I wanna make it right
    Willing to talk if it takes all night
    Maybe it’s better if we try
    To settle down in a leaded lie

    ​Why don’t we sleep on it
    Everything will be alright
    Girl I don’t wanna fight
    Why don’t we sleep on it tonight

    ​Why don’t we sleep on it
    Cuddle up and make it right
    Why don’t you dim the light
    And we’ll just sleep on it tonight

    ​I know it’s down to me
    It’s my responsibility
    I just want your happiness
    If I’ve done wrong, then I confess

    ​But there’s nothing lost
    And I would never count the cost
    Tomorrow's another day
    I think we’ve said all we can say

    ​Why don’t we sleep on it
    I don’t really wanna fight
    Why don’t we dim the light
    And just sleep on it tonight

    ​Why don’t we sleep on it
    Cuddle up and make it right
    Everything will be alright
    If we sleep on it tonight

    ​ No matter what you think about me
    I’ll still be here when the morning comes
    Oh yes, I will

    ​Why don’t we sleep on it
    Baby I don’t want to fight
    Why don’t you dim the light
    Can we sleep on it tonight

  43. Stephen McCann

    went to see Paul in Liverpool this year excellent show can't wait for next years show.

  44. Susan Gillespie

    Such a wonderful track and sentiment. Reminds me of an Isley Brothers relaxing track.

  45. Colin Dowd

    I absolutely love Mr Carrack's voice. He has the ability to sound both classic and current which is a rare talent! Very few vocalists can ever hope to achieve this crossover performance regardless of the composition. What a man!

    SILVIA FERNANDEZ

    Colin Dowd amazing voice !!!

  46. Daron Hogg

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  47. Peter
