Here's a copy of a lesson you know,
and put the kind words to bed.
For man don't say why, or even know how,
it's only awful as the hell that you know.

When eyelids want to close, eyelids want to close,
they'll know how, yeah, they'll know how.

And only hours before the house had burned down,
he shut the other door.
But if I don't see now, or even know why,
it's only awful as the hell that you know.

When eyelids want to close, eyelids want to close,
they'll know how, yeah, they'll know how.

Home, home, home
Home, home, home
Home, home, home
Home, home, home

He was writing in the lesson you know,
let's take the other door.
Now if I don't think right, or even know how,
it's only awful as the hell that you know.

When eyelids want to close, eyelids want to close,
they'll know how, yeah, they'll know how.

Home, home, home
Home, home, home
Home, home, home
Home, home, home
