What an incredible day, we learned, we cried
I laughed, you sighed, you flew, I tried
And how great it was to enjoy the outside
The bees, the cats, the trees, the sky
I think now it’s time to close our eyes
The sun has gone low, but my excitement, too high
How can I sleep when great things I could miss?
I know I will dream, but how can a dream be better than this?
My insides are still racing and ready to go
But if I stay up too long they'll eventually slow
And then tomorrow will be a little slower than today
And on and on and on in that way
Until one day I grow to be old and cranky
So by getting sleep now, the old me will thank me
Because sleep gives me the chance to make tomorrow better than today
Even though I don’t believe it now, it’s possible anyway
