John Wesley Harding — I'd Be Sleeping If My Baby Were Here lyrics

If tonight were like last night
I wouldn't be thinking
But dreaming of somewhere I wanted to go
If tonight were like last night
I wouldn't be sinking
Or watching the sun coming up from below
I'd be holding you tight
You'd have turned off the light
And I'd be sleeping if my baby were here
I'd be sleeping if my baby were here

And if time could go backwards
I wouldn't be lonely
Or playing back scenes bound to keep me awake
And if time could go backwards
We'd both just get younger
And do what we wanted with none of the ache
But instead there's just cars
None of them yours
And I'd be sleeping if my baby were here
I'd be sleeping if my baby were here


And the bed's the same size without you
But it's me that gets so small
The bed's the same size without you
Wish I was big enough to fall


If a dream could come true
Then I wish I could have one
Stead of watching the headlights beat time with my heart
If a wish was a dream
We'd put reins on the sun
And ride it the wrong way
So we never would part
I'd be holding you tight
We'd both be outta sight
And I'd be sleeping if my baby were here
I'd be sleeping if my baby were here
I'd be sleeping if my baby were here.
