Sleep Will Return

(Gene Clark, Pat Robinson, John York)



You don't do much sleepin'
When you toss and you turn
So the next time I see her
Is when the sleep will return

So we moved down to Austin
'Cause the crops had been burned
The drought had just taught us
A lesson to learn

I took out my guitar
As a means to survive
With my sole intention
To keep our love alive

But the working in night spots
Wouldn't cover the rent
I wrote my first hit song
The day that she left

And you don't do much sleepin'
When you toss and you turn
So the next time I see her
Is when the sleep will return

Now those golden records
They cover my walls
But my house is empty
'Though everyone calls

'Cause you see that without her
There's a void in my life
Though I have the world now
I still miss my wife

'Cause you don't do much sleepin'
When you toss and you turn
So the next time I see her
Is when the sleep will return
When the sleep will return
