lyrics

Anybody knows me, knows I talk a lot.
But I always thought I knew when to stop.
Now it seems that my dreams have got,
So freakin' vivid that my sleep is fraught,
with conversation, complications,
get me all steamed like condensation,
from conservation to constant hatred,
the world's got so many problems,
that I'm awful jaded.

Always faded, always buzzed,
but if you can't sleep there's always drugs.
Little Bo Peep can take her sheep and shove,
them off a cliff, I need a spliff and a jug.
That's what keep monsters stuck in the rug,
under the bed, and outta my head.
Dreamers don't die, we either reach the sky,
or live another day, and go on our way.

I stay out way too long,
I don't ever wanna go home,
but when I do the sleep is there,
and I can't start this over,

I'm talkin' in my sleep lately,
I'm talkin' to myself at night,
I've been talkin' in my dreams lately,
and it's never gonna stop, it's alright.

They say in one ear, then out the other.
Not my case, every phrase that I've uttered.
Jape I've muttered, thing that I said,
Were words I heard mixed together in my head.
Like, yeah I talk a lot, but I always listen,
even though I fear what I hear don't glisten,
As often as I'd like, the world's often a fright,
But I'd rather be bothered at night, than lost and outta sight!

Coughin' with a pipe, that I always gotta light,
Trying to find the divine, in what's defined as right,
Cause what's left behind, and often thought of as wrong,
Is the simple life it turns out we needed all along.
Be it weeded with a bong, like we was Cheech and Chong
Or sharing just air and ideas on a lawn,
Can we all get along is what my mind's sayin',
Flat on my back I stay awake layin'.

I'm feelin' way too crazy,
I cant get out of seein' hazy,
My vision's way too jaded,
and I can't start this over,

I'm talkin' in my sleep lately,
I'm talkin' to myself at night,
I've been talkin' in my dreams lately,
and it's never gonna stop, it's alright.

--- HORN BREAK ---

I'm talkin' in my sleep lately,
I'm talkin' to myself at night,
I've been talkin' in my dreams lately,
and it's never gonna stop, it's alright.

And it's never gonna stop,
It's never gonna stop,
It's never gonna stop,
But it's alright!

I've been talkin'
I've been talkin' in my sleep lately!

about

The New Groovement

The New Groovement is funk band that seemlessly blends R&B, soul, and hip hop to create a funk-i-fied feast for the ears. If Jamiroquai had the soul of Aretha Franklin or The Roots had the energy of Sharon Jones, then you'd have The New Groovement. Local TV and radio have dubbed the sound as "the epitome of live music," and "a super-band." ... more
