i can’t get up out of this bed lyrics – colin hay

bees are buzzing in my ear
birds are singing pure and clear
oh but i can’t stop thinking about you

creek is running, running high
trees are burning touch the sky
much as i try i can’t stop thinking about you

an’ i can’t get up out of this bed
i can’t get up out of this bed
no i can’t get up out of this bed
for nothing

i’ve been weeping in my beer
an’ i was dreaming you were here
my tears are dry
but i can’t stop thinking about you

an’ i can’t get up out of this bed
i can’t get up out of this bed
no i can’t get up out of this bed
for nothing

i can’t feel my heart anymore
it’s as empty as a lie
i can’t answer the knockin’ at my door
why can’t i?

time is coming, it’s gettin’ near
no more sleeping to kill the fear
oh but i can’t stop thinking about you

an’ i can’t get up out of this bed
i can’t get up out of this bed
no i can’t get up out of this bed
for nothing
for nothing
