​Sleep It Off

This song is by That Handsome Devil and appears on the album That Handsome Devil (2006).

Pressed against the ceilin'
Swayin' side to side
Move under or around me
You can't fit into my life
Shoulders bump the buildin's
Knock the passers-by
Move over or around me
'Cause there ain't no room inside

That little hand means "stop"
That little man means "walk"
Cross when you want
You're gonna go to jail, you're gonna sleep it off
It goes: bar to bar, police car to ER
Run block to block
Go to jail, sleep it off

The streets are only empty when I need someone
There's nothing to see here, move along
Those streets are only empty when I need someone
Just lie here waiting for the ambulance to come

Stumble in the alley
Countin' all the stars
The blue lights shinin' and they twinkle off the walls
Stumble down the hallway
In a crooked crawl
Them red lights shinin', how they twinkle off the walls

That little hand means "stop"
That little man means "walk"
Cross when you want
You're gonna go to jail, you're gonna sleep it off
It goes: bar to bar, police car to ER
Run block to block
Go to jail, sleep it off

These street are only empty when I need someone
There's nothing to see here, girl, move along
These streets is only empty when I need someone
Just lie here waiting for the ambulance to come

(Move!)
(You heard him; let's go! Move!)

No, I don't want to go, nah-nah-nah
Don't, don't take me to the hospital, I said
No, I don't want to go, nahnahnah
Don't, don't take me to the hospital, nah-nah-nah
No-no-no, I don't want to go
I said don't, don't take me to the hospital
No, I don't want to go, nah-nah-nah
Don't, don't take me to the hospital

Those streets are only empty when I need someone
There's nothing to see here, just move along
Those streets are only empty when I need someone
Just lie here waiting for the ambulance to come
