Lyrics for Sleeping On My Dreams by Jacob Collier:

Verse 1
You've been feeling like you're running away (Ooh, ooh)
You've been trying to think of something to say (Oh, oh-oh)
But I've been thinking it's no matter at all (Ooh, ooh)
I think we thought of saying nothing before (Oh, oh-oh)
Yeah, I decided to remember your name (Ooh, ooh)
You were avoiding me and it was a shame (Oh, oh-oh)
Now the time has come for me to admit (Ooh, ooh)
I don't think I could be your line of best fit (Oh well)

Pre-Chorus
My bed is made of feathers
I'll fall asleep, whatever now (Ooh)

Chorus
'Cause I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah
And I can't remember what I mean to you
And everything is what it seems, ah-ah, ah-ah
I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah-ah (Oh)
'Cause I've been thinking 'bout some things, ah
And I do believe our many days are through
Don't think I'm lost without your wings, ah-ah, ah-ah
I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah-ah

Verse 2
So I imagined we were playing a game
Something like you could be an animal and all I had to do was be tame (Ah-ah-ah)
I watch you flying 'round with nothing to lose
I thought that was the kinda levitation no person could ever abuse (I was wrong)
My boots were getting heavy and I (Oh, oh-oh)
I said I'll meet you at the corner like a twinkle in my elephant eye (Oh, oh-oh)
But uh, I think the time has come for us to admit
It could be weird for us to try to commit
(Oh well)

Pre-Chorus
My bed is all my pleasure
Now I'll fall asleep forever now (Ooh)

Chorus
'Cause I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah
And I can't remember what I mean to you
And everything is what it seems, ah-ah, ah-ah
I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah-ah (Oh)
'Cause I've been thinking 'bout some things, ah
And I do believe our many days are through
Don't think I'm lost without your wings, ah-ah, ah-ah
I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah-ah

Bridge
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I've been thinking 'bout our dreams, oh-oh
Ooh da, da-da
Ooh da, da-da
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I've been thinking 'bout our dreams, oh-oh
Ooh da, da-da
Ooh da, da-da
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I've been thinking 'bout our dreams, oh-oh
Ooh da, da-da
Ooh da, da-da
Oh-oh, oh-oh
I've been thinking 'bout our dreams, oh-oh
Ooh da, da-da
Ooh da, da-da

Chorus
'Cause I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah
And I can't remember what I mean to you
And everything is what it seems, ah-ah, ah-ah
I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah-ah (Oh)
'Cause I've been thinking 'bout some things, ah
And I do believe our many days are through (Our many days are through)
Don't think I'm lost without your wings, ah-ah, ah-ah
I've been sleeping on my wings, ah-ah, ah-ah
I've been sleeping on my dreams, ah-ah

Outro
Ooh da, da-da
Ooh da, da-da
Oh-oh, oh-oh
Ooh da, da-da
Ooh da, da-da
