Sleepyhead is a story of a troubled friend and what it's like to not be able to help them out.

lyrics

Sleepyhead - Red Falcon / White Lightning

Wake up sleepyhead, you've been on the floor to long/
Lying there comatose, wondering how to carry on/

There 'aint a thing I can say to convince you/
There's just a point that'll break that you'll get to/
I hope for all of our sake that it comes soon

You gotta get outside while the weather's still warm, yeah

Hey there sleepyhead, how I miss you wide awake/
I've been thinkin' about, thinkin' about better days before the line began to break/

I heard someone say they knew you were no good/
And I raised my fists like I always said I would/
A coward only kicks when you're down, oh/

You gotta get outside while the weather's still warm/
You gotta free your mind from this feeling forlorn/
You gotta make your way to a place you call home, yeah/

We can't go on, feeling down about this awful mess, no/
What's done is done, gotta dust yourself off, pick up and move on/

Wake up sleepyhead(wake up sleepyhead)/
Wake up sleepyhead(wake up sleepyhead)/

There 'aint a thing we can say to convince you/
There's just a point that'll break that you'll get to/
I hope for all of our sake that it comes soon

You gotta get outside while the weather's still warm/
You gotta free your mind from this feeling forlorn/
You gotta make your way to a place you can call home/
