Agnes Obel – Broken Sleep Lyrics

Broken Sleep By Agnes Obel

Broken sleep, all too human
A malady
It’s gazing through when I would

Dream me a dream soft as a pillow
Deep in the night till the morning will follow

Shapes of smoke, all too human
They grow, like titans.

I would like to fall, silence every call,
Fall asleep
Will you level me with a dream?
If I could fall, fall.

Twisted rope, defies all I know
It holds, my reason

Dream me a dream soft as a pillow
Deep in the night till the morning will follow

Sea of trees, calling humans
To hang like leaves from the willow

I would like to fall, silence every call
Fall asleep.
Will you level me with a dream?
If I could fall, fall.

Take my word for it, for it.
In the dark, in the dark words can follow.
