Eddie Money - We Should Be Sleeping Lyrics

We should be sleeping now
We're wide awake, but we're dead on our feet
We're never keeping, no
All of the promises we said we'd keep

Four in the morning
Still got the lights and the radio on
Don't worry, baby
I'm gonna change all the things that went wrong, now

We should be sleeping
Tables are turned and it's, it's breaking my heart
Things will get better (I promise you, honey)
I'll end this nightmare before it can start

Don't say, "Bye-bye-bye-bye-bye-bye, baby"
Why should we break down and cry?
Can't let the world drive you crazy
Don't say, "Bye, baby bye-bye, now"
Don't say, "Bye-bye-bye, baby, now"

We should be sleeping
We're still wide awake, but we're dead on our feet, now
We're never keeping, now
All of the promises we said we'd keep

Don't say, "Bye-bye-bye-bye-bye-bye, baby"
Why should we break down and cry?
Can't let the world drive you crazy, hey
Don't say, "Bye, baby, bye-bye"

No deposit, no return
Play with love, you're gonna burn
Cheat yourself, you cheat your heart

We should be sleeping

Don't say, "Bye-bye-bye-bye-bye-bye, baby"
Why should we break down and cry?
Don't let the world drive you crazy
Don't say, "Bye, baby, bye-bye, now"
Don't say, "Bye-bye-bye-bye, baby, now"

Don't say, "Bye-bye-bye-bye-bye-bye, baby"
Why should we break down and cry?
Don't let the world drive you crazy, oh no
Don't say, "Bye, baby, bye-bye"

Don't say, "Bye-bye-bye-bye-bye-bye, baby"
Why should we break down and cry?
Don't let the world drive you crazy
Don't say, "Bye, baby, bye-bye"

Eddie Money We Should Be Sleeping Comments
  1. Vai Man

    What a great artist. Miss you Eddie. RIP

  2. I Seigel

    The other "official" videos were crap compared to this one. Dracula?? Skinny Russian models? Who cares. THIS video really captures what an Eddie Money concert was like and what it was like to be on the road during that time.
    Let's also give credit where credit is due. The band and crew on this video were:
    John Nelson - guitar
    Tommy Girvin - guitar
    Kai Gilbert - keyboards (RIP Kai)
    Chris Solberg - bass
    Glenn Symmonds - drums
    Marc Candelario - crew
    Roger Veage - crew
    Rob Zablow - lights
    Ralph Sorani - Eddie's personal ass't
    Geoff Ganiford - FOH Sound
    Ira Seigel - TM

  71. Jeden DwaTrzy

    RIP Eddie Money. This video has shots from my favorite local breakfast diner. I always liked this song a lot.

    Tom Korell

    Jeden DwaTrzy which diner?

    Jeden DwaTrzy

    @Tom Korell When the video was made it was called The White House on the corner of Mishawaka Avenue and Twyckenham Drive. The diner was closed and sat vacant for a few years before being bought and completely remodeled into Jeannie's House Diner about 8-9 years ago. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best breakfast in town. I was just there for breakfast a few hours ago and I have designated, in my own mind, that the seating location at the counter where Eddie and his band sat in the video as the Eddie Money Memorial Chairs.

    Tom Korell

    Jeden DwaTrzy thanks for the info!

    Jeden DwaTrzy

    You’re welcome!

  72. Liz Kerr
