Jason Mraz - Sleeping To Dream Lyrics




I'm dreaming of sleeping next to you
I'm feeling like a lost little boy in a brand new town
I'm counting my sheep and each one that passes is another dream to ashes
And they all fall down

And as I lay me down tonight
I close my eyes
What a beautiful sight

I'm sleeping to dream about you
I'm so damn tired
Of having to live without you
But I I don't mind
I'm sleeping to dream about you
I'm so tired

Oh yes, I am

I found myself in the riches
Your eyes, your lips, your hair well
You were everywhere out there
But I woke up in the ditches
I hit the light and I thought you might be here
But you were nowhere
Oh love, you were nowhere at home

And as I lay me back to sleep
This love I pray that I can keep

Sleeping to dream about you
I'm so damn tired
Of having to live without you
But I I don't mind
I'm sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

This is just a little a lullaby
To keep myself from crying
myself a little lullaby to keep keep
My eyes from always crying
Yes it's just a little lullaby
I'm trying to get myself to fall asleep sleep
It's just a little lullaby
So I don't cry myself to sleep at night

Sleeping to dream about you
I'm so damn tired
Of having to live without you
But I I don't mind

I'm sleeping to dream about you
I'm so, I'm tired
I'm so tired, I'm so tired

    Is another dream to ashes
    And they all fall down

    As I lay me down tonight
    I close my eyes
    What a beautiful sight!

    Well, it's just a little lullaby
    To keep myself from crying
    Myself, a little lullaby to keep
    Just a little lullaby
    To keep myself from crying
    Myself, a little lullaby to keep my
    Eyes, I'm always crying
    It's just a little lullaby

    Once I dry my eyes I'll
    Come on!

    Now, sleeping to dream about you
    And I'm so damn tired
    Of having to live without you
    But I, I don't mind
    I'm sleeping to dream about
    And I'm so tired
    I'm so tired

    Dormindo Pra Sonhar

    Estou sonhando em dormir ao seu lado
    Estou me sentindo como um pequeno garoto perdido
    Em uma cidade nova
    Estou contando ovelhas e cada uma que passa
    É outro sonho de cinzas
    E todos eles caem

    Assim que eu me deito esta noite
    Eu fecho meus olhos
    Que bela vista!

    Dormindo para sonhar com você
    E eu estou tão cansado
    De ter que viver sem você
    Mas eu, eu não me importo
    Eu estou dormindo para sonhar com você
    E eu estou tão cansado
    Oh, sim... Eu sou...

    Eu encontrei-me na riqueza
    Seus olhos, seus lábios, seu cabelo
    Oh, você estava em todo lugar lá fora
    Mas eu acordei nas valas
    Eu encontrei a luz e eu pensei
    Você pode estar aqui
    Mas você não estava em lugar algum
    Oh, amor... Mas você não estava em casa

    E assim que volto a dormir
    Este amor, rezo para que eu possa manter

    Dormindo para sonhar com você
    E eu estou tão cansado
    De ter que viver sem você
    Mas eu não me importo
    Eu estou dormindo para sonhar com você
    E eu estou tão cansado
    Estou tão cansado...

    Bem, é apenas uma canção de ninar
    Para que eu não chore
    Eu, uma canção de ninar para me segurar
    Apenas uma canção de ninar
    Para que eu não chore
    Eu, uma canção de ninar para segurar meus
    Olhos, eu estou sempre chorando
    É apenas uma canção de ninar

    Uma vez eu enxugo meus olhos eu vou...
    Vamos lá!

    Agora, dormir para sonhar com você
    E eu estou tão cansado
    De ter que viver sem você
    Mas eu, eu não me importo
    Estou dormindo a sonhar
    E eu estou tão cansado
    Eu estou tão... Cansado...

  77. Marri Grace

    Has he answered why he included this in the album? What has taking him so long to do the studio version..? Ohh man... the feeelllssss...

    88nashty

    marrimoonmusic he did on his Twitter.

  78. Marri Grace

    Ohhhhhhhmyyyyyygooooossshhhh i was really stoooked when i saw the title...i mean its not possible right to write 2 songs of the same title from the same artist but noooo...IT IS THE SONG from,, what? 10 years ago? Uggghh... icannnoooot. I love this. Jason thank you for this gift. I cannot stress it enough... thank you.

    Delio Zuño

    This is Java Joe's era so around 1996, which makes this song 22 years old :)

    Mijadi1987

    Jason moved to California in 1999, so Java Joe's was most of the few years following that. He did write several of his earliest songs like Spinning, Halfway Home, and Running in the 95-96 vicinity I believe. Sleeping to Dream, Sleep All Day, Childlike Wildlife, etc. are also in that really early territory (though idk exact orders or anyting), so 96ish could be right for when he actually wrote it :)

    Jordan McGinnis

    Try 19 years ago... :) I have live performances from 99' of him singing it at Java Joes.

    Branden Sandberg

    He himself says he wrote this one in 1999 actually! (That's to everyone under this thread)

  79. Joao Flavio

    Good times... Good vibes... Thank you!

  80. Caroline Ferreira

    I CAN'T BELIEVE HE RELEASED THIS SONG!!

  81. Ferd Tows

    It's great that Sleeping to Dream finally made it to an album, but Selections for Friends (Live from Montalvo) version is way better than this one. Jason's sound fits best when played live.

    Mijadi1987

    Ferd Tows that's my favorite version too ☺️

  82. Kat Pom

    One of my absolute favourites, reminds me of wandering around Boston years ago with this on repeat. What a beautiful version 😍

  83. JP Montanaro

    HOPE TO SEE YOU PERFORMING IN COSTA RICA

  84. youaremysong

    Glad to have heard this song and with toca's backing vox mesh with Jason's voice like a glove

  85. Tom Ferlaak

    This song brings tears every time. especially today.

  86. Samuel Sousa

    Esse som tá muito perfeito thanks Jason

  87. yago farias

    Eu não esperava por isso. Eu amo tanto essa música meu deus

  88. Lorena Morgado Pérez

    Finally!! :>

  89. Tawnee Kendall

    ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS VERSION. THANK YOU FOR MAKING A STUDIO RECORDING!

  90. Sandra Bezerra

    Are all cool!!

  91. David Svraka

    FAVOURITE SONG !!! Finally finally finally

  92. Dino knowsss

    superb!

  93. Taha Raouki

    I have waited all this years for this😍

  94. Hattan

    I can't believe you put this song in your new album. I just love you.

  95. kulayjams

    Timeless. Jason has inspired me in a lot of ways I couldn't have imagined. I discovered my passion for making music because of him. Although most of my songs are in my native language, people see the influence that Jason had in them.

    From the Philippines with love love love. - James L.

    kulayjams 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

    Mijadi1987

    kulayjams He's had such a huge impact on so many people around the world. From what I've seen the Philippines might appreciate Jason as much as any country. His shows there must be so special and celebratory. Hope you see him next year! Love from New Jersey haha 💜

    kulayjams

    @Mijadi1987 hello there. So agree! My close friends who are also Jason Mraz fans feel the same way I do. His music is healing.

    Kinda hesitating to shamelessly plug this in but this is one of my songs where I tried to copy his "melodic rap" style of play.

    https://youtu.be/I5b3hzdc6to

    Mijadi1987

    kulayjams Yes healing is a great word for it. I will definitely watch your video later 😁. I'm overwhelmed getting ready to go to see my friends. We are seeing Jason tonight and are so excited!! I keep getting distracted by Jason stuff on YouTube haha. By the way I've uploaded tons of rare Jason stuff including the earliest version of this if you are interested 😺

    kulayjams

    @Mijadi1987 wow I'm full of envy! Hope he comes to the Philippines soon. I recall seeing him perform as duo with only Toca back then and they lit up thousands of crowd. I could still remember the goosebumps. Haha.

    Enjoy the night!

    Love love love from the Philippines - James L.
