Jack Johnson – Sunsets For Somebody Else

[Verse 1]
I know I’ve seen your face somewhere
Selling something, some big idea
I know I’ve seen that vacant stare
Selling sunsets for somebody else
You find yourself asking yourself
What is any of it worth
You find yourself looking up at night
From the bottom of the earth

[Chorus]
No, can this world not afford to sleep anymore?
No, did your sheep start jumping?
They grow out their teeth
Did they need a little something more than this?

[Verse 2]
The taste of trouble on your lips
‘Cause now they’re biting at your thoughts
You tell yourself just to turn away
But you know you’ve already lost
The smell of rain when you saw a way
Could never be paid in full
You try in vain to account for this mess
And everything that you stole

[Chorus]
Ooo
No, can this world not afford to sleep anymore? (Ooo)
No, did your sheep start jumping?
(Ooo)
They grow out their teeth
Did they need a little something more than this?

[Verse 3]
‘Cause now they’re biting at your feet
They got you running from this place
Now they’re breathing down your neck
Your eyes look lonely in your face
I see you looking just out of frame
What is it pulling you there?
‘Cause things can never stay the same
So what is keeping you here?

[Alternate Chorus]
Ooo
No, can this world not afford to sleep anymore? (Ooo)
No, did your sheep start jumping?
They grow out their teeth
They need a little something now
Every time you think, well, they’ll be biting at your thoughts
And every time you blink, well, you’ll be so damn far
But you are more than this
I know I’ve seen your face somewhere
