​Mean Sleep

This song is by Cree Summer and appears on the album Street Faërie (1999).

Lenny Kravitz:
What can we scrape together
With just the flesh as evidence
Handfuls of hate
And the bittersweet ambivalence

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
'Cause I am pushin' cobwebs
And I'm folding into myself

Lenny Kravitz:
Who will find me under this mean sleep

Cree Summer:
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change?

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz:
You could burn a thousand days
And I would need no other light
You could die a thousand ways
And I'd still love you back to life

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
But my needs rising angry
And my loneliness like quicksand

Lenny Kravitz:
Who will find me under this mean sleep

Cree Summer:
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change?

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I am lost to the longing
I am moulded by the memory

Lenny Kravitz:
Had to shut down half my mind

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
Just to still the space you left behind

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
'Cause I am pushin' cobwebs
And I'm folding into myself

Lenny Kravitz:
Who will find me under this mean sleep

Cree Summer:
How could the clouds tease us into thinking it might rain?
How could the need deceive us into thinking things might change?

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I had a mean, mean sleep over you
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz:
Coming back to life

Cree Summer:
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I had a mean, mean sleep over you

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz:
Coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I had a mean, mean sleep over you

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
I had a mean sleep

Lenny Kravitz and Cree Summer:
And it hurts, hurts coming back to life

Lenny Kravitz:
Coming back to life yeah

(Repeat until end of song.)
