lyrics

Your working day now complete
The world outside falls asleep, a cradle to the cold
This situation tonight, I'm here, you're there
It's not right, to have and not to hold

The Nighshift lay before me
The Nightshift make me stay away

Just know that I would love to be, with you
But I can't do right now you see
There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you

An invitation to spend
The evening out with my friends I regretfully decline
The chance to lay down beside
My baby for the night I had to let slip by

The Nighshift lay before me
The Nightshift make me stay away

Just know that I would love to be, with you
But I can't do right now you see
There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you

I look around, I can't come down
When there's so much to be done
So understand, it's who I am
The Nightshift is what I've become

Just know that I would love to be, with you
I can't do right now you see
There's nowhere I would rather be, than with you

When your down remember this
Close your eyes, make a wish cos it's my alibi
When your lost remember this
Close your eyes and picture this
Sleep tonight, sleep tonight.
