Might I Suggest Some Sleep

If you’re stressed out
and too numb to speak
You’ve eaten breakfast
but still a little weak
If you’re exhausted
If all you do is weep
Might I suggest some sleep

If you’ve got a lot
there on your plate
And you’re reeling –
in an depressive state
If you’re so beat down
If you’re in too deep
Might I suggest some sleep

Take off your shoes
Remove your socks
Put your smartphone
in an enclosed box
Go in your bedroom
Slip under the sheets
You’ll feel much better
with slow heartbeats

If you’ve lost your mind
which we’ve all done
Maybe disappointed
Yourself or someone
Don’t leave your house
or act like Meryl Streep
Might I suggest some sleep

Take off your shoes
Remove your socks
Put your smartphone
in an enclosed box
Go in your bedroom
Slip under the sheets
You’ll feel much better
with slow heartbeats

Might I suggest you
get some good sleep
