Emerson Drive - I Should Be Sleeping Lyrics

I never knew there were such great movies
on TV at 3 AM
I'd never guessed that at midnight Tuesday
I could have pizza ordered in
I've never been a real night owl
But these days I'm all turned around
There's only one thing I'm sure of right now

I should be sleeping
'Stead of keeping
These late hours I've been keeping
I've been pacing and retracing
every step of every move
even though I'm feeling so right
I'm so happy still I know I
should be sleeping
instead of dreaming about you

I never knew that I was funny
'til I went and made you laugh
never liked a girl to call me honey
but you did and I liked that
I keep thinking about your smile
trying to read between the lines
looks like I'll be up for a while


After just three dates
and one great kiss
it's way too soon
to be obsessing like this


Dreaming about you
I should be sleeping
dreaming about you

Well, I'm dreaming about you

  44. Alex Lawrence

    You shold

  45. Aly9315

    This song reminds me of my guy. He has my heart in his hand, and he doesn't know it. He doesn't know that I am falling for him so much the more and more that he talks to me. He winks at me and hugs me and says and does the sweetest things. I don't think he knows how awesome and amazing he is. I love how humble he is. When people tell him how nice and sweet he is, he says that he tries. He does more than just trying though; he succeeds and has me falling for him so much. He is the best and sweetest guy I met in my whole life. It is just not fair how much I am falling for him. He is seriously the best.


    What finally happened with you and this guy?

    Kayla Henneman

    Aly9315 yeah I am curious now too


    Kayla Henneman and Just1Bum, we ended up going out, and now we have been together for a little more than two years. ❤


    I hope you guys got married it sounds like the real deal ❤️
