I'm sleepin' less in L.A.
Dreamin' of days yet to come
I don't care what you say
I know that those days will surely come

And I'm wakin' and I'm callin'
I'm shakin' and I'm fallin'
And oh, little darlin'
I wonder when those sweet dreams will come

There's a hole in the sky
That was made by my right guard last night
Oh, and then there's you and I
Assuring that everything's alright

We are nursing, pretending
Cursing then defending
And yet it's never ending
Makes ya' wonder when those sweet dreams will come

I am lookin' for some love
I guess that's why people buy dogs
Is there someone up above?
And I wonder is the captain keeping logs

I am cursing and I'm praying
Not knowing what we're saying
And yet, it's everydaying
And I wonder when those sweet dreams will come

I feel like a fire
In the morning when the fire is out
I am walking on the wire
And the wire's what the whole thing is about

The pretender is thinning
Surrender is winning
And yet, it's a beginning
To feel like those sweet dreams will come

The pretender is thinning
Surrender is winning
And yet, it's a beginning
To feel like those sweet dreams will come

And oh, little darlin'
Don't ya wonder when those sweet dreams will come
Oh, sweet dreams will come
Oh, sweet dreams will come
Oh, sweet dreams will come
Oh, sweet dreams will come
Oh, sweet dreams will come
