Track Name: Sweet Dreams
[Verse]
I lie awake at night, thinking ‘bout you, do you think about me?
And I think it’s only right that I say a prayer ‘fore I go to sleep
Late night on the cellphone and we speak from a different timezone
We’ve been together for a minute now and we’re ‘bout to hit yet another milestone
When I’m feeling all alone, you make that hotline bling
Ring-ring, Baby, come quick and you know better not to talk slick
It’d be while till I move over and I know it’s been awhile since I flew over
Hang tight, I’ll be in flight but for now baby, good night
Sweet dreams

[Bridge]
It’s you that I want
and it’s you that I need
Sweet dreams are just made of these
It’s you that I wanna be with
All night, All night, All night
All night, All night, Yeah... Woo!

[Chorus]
Sweet dreams
Sweet dreams
Sweet dreams
Goodnight, baby, sweet dreams
Sweet dreams
Sweet dreams
Goodnight, baby, sweet dreams

I could go all night
Baby, go to sleep
When it’s cold outside
Let me pull the sheets
Baby, you’re the one for me
The one I need, you can always run to me
‘Cause baby, you can always count on me
On me, you can always count on me
On me, you can always count on me
Hang tight, I’ll be in flight but for now baby, good night
Sweet Dreams
