(Verse)
My eyelids are getting very heavy
My will to stay away is getting weak
As I lay here tonight
Mamas turning out the light
I know that there is so much more to see

(Chorus)
If I close my eyes I know that Ill be missing something
A shooting star or something good on the TV
Daddy dont be mad if you hear me crying
Im only trying not to fall asleep

(Verse)
Whatevers going on outside my window
Im not tall enough to look out there and see
When things go bump in the night and Im terrified from fight
I thank God that I have Teddy lying next to me

(Chorus)
If I close my eyes I know that Ill be missing something
A shooting star or something good on the TV
Daddy dont be mad if you hear me crying
Im only trying not to fall asleep

If I close my eyes I know that Ill be missing something
A shooting star or something good on the TV
Daddy dont be mad if you hear me crying
Im only trying not to fall
Im just trying not to fall
Im just trying not to fall asleep
