​I've Been Asleep For A Long, Long Time

This song is by Hey Rosetta! and appears on the album Into Your Lungs (2008).

I've been asleep for a long, long time
Blond hair to brown and then brown to white
My ma is buried beside my dad
But I was asleep for all of that

I shut my eyes for a moment's rest
'Cause I get so tired
What thing transpired while my body slept?
Beset my mind

All the schools that I went to have all been closed
And all of my teachers are dead I suppose
The songs that we sung have all gone quiet
What happens below as you sleep at night?

I shut my eyes for a moment's rest
'Cause I get so tired
What things transpired while my body slept?
Beset my mind

The river's up, the reeds are caught
Halfway across what never was
The water rose and swept in slow
When the reeds awoke they were half below

I've been asleep for a long, long time
Blond hair to brown and then brown to white
My ma is buried beside my dad
But I was asleep for all of that

I've been asleep for a long, long time
Blond hair to brown and brown to white
My ma is buried beside my dad
But I was asleep for all of that
For all of that
