I'm Not Sleeping

This song is by Counting Crows and appears on the album Recovering the Satellites (1996) and on the live album Across a Wire: Live in New York City (1998).

She comes to me at night
When I'm sleepin'
She comes to me
When I'm alone
She comes to me, she holds my head
When I'm cryin'
She comes to me, she shuts my eyes
She brings me home.

But I'm not sleepin' anymore, anymore
No I'm not sleepin' anymore, anymore

She tells me when you look at me
She tells me when you're lyin'
She tells me when you talk about me
And she lays me on the floor
She tells me when you're whispering, she lies beside me naked
She tells me when you laugh at me
And she locks all the doors

But I'm not sleepin' anymore, anymore
No I'm not sleepin' anymore, anymore

1-2-3-4-5-6-7 a.m. all alone again
But I've been through all this shit before
Spend my nights in self-defense
Cry about my innocence
But I ain't all that innocent anymore, more, more, more

I see her on the TV
I see her in the movies
I see her in these animals that dance beside my bed
I'll follow you down baby, down into this valley
Yeah I'll follow you down baby
But I won't come up again

But I'm not sleepin' anymore, anymore
No I'm not sleepin' anymore, anymore
No I'm not sleepin', I'm not sleeping,
I'm not sleepin', no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Well I'm not sleepin', I'm not sleepin' anymore, anymore, no, anymore, any--, anymore
I said rain rain go away
Come again some other day
'Cause I got all this shit to say, but I goin' back to find my way
My sister's mother's favorite son lost among the chosen ones
But I got news for everyone cause I'm going out that door
