lyrics

Last night,
Your beehive came alive,
Kept you up all night,
When I was sleeping tight,
Oh, I had no idea
The noisy swarm so near,
And as I slept, you woke, my love.

So fall asleep
In your window seat,
And I’ll try not to breathe
So you can sleep on me,
And you can dream in peace
In drowsy flower-fields,
And as I wake, you’ll sleep, my love.

‘Cause you and I, we made promises,
They are like necklaces, like magic currencies.
‘Cause you and I, we made promises,
And they’ll buy us all the sleep we need.

One day,
When all your bees are quiet,
Maybe mine will wake, and form an angry riot,
Oh, I will need you then,
Your sympathetic eyes,
They will brave the stings and me, my love,

And it won’t hurt,
‘Cause this is how it works,
And this is what we’re for,
And I will always be
A shoulder while you sleep,
A smoker for your bees,
A man who understands, or tries, my love,

And you and I, we made promises,
They are like necklaces, like magic currencies.
‘Cause you and I, we made promises,
And they’ll buy us all the sleep we need.

‘Cause you and I, we made promises,
They are like necklaces, like magic currencies.
‘Cause you and I, we made promises,
And they’ll buy us all the sleep we need.
