LYRICS
Sleeping Dogs by Rowen Porter

I might collapse
I've just found out I'm someone else
I'm not the girl you'd run into the street for anymore just to get to her quicker

But if only I made you feel like she does
If only I made you feel like that
If only I was enough
If only there was a spark
If only I was your match
I've gotta let sleeping dogs lie

You'd never meet her
If I stood in your way
We were meant to be for only a time, and time and pleasure have their day
Isn't that what they say

But if only I made you feel like she does
If only I made you feel like that
If only I was enough
If only there was a spark
If only I was your match

I've gotta let sleeping dogs lie
Let sleeping dogs rest
And I'll get in my getaway car
And drive and drive and drive til' I forget
For now, I'll let sleeping dogs rest

And they howl in the night
And they're calling me back
I won't give in, no, you know I'm through with that
But they howl in the night
And they calling me back
I won't give in, I'm through with that

I'm free enough to go
I'm free enough to know
I'm free enough to go
I'm free enough to know

Gotta let sleeping dogs lie
Let sleeping dogs rest
And I'll get in my getaway car
And I'll drive and drive and drive til' I forget
For now, I'll let sleeping dogs rest
Mm let them rest

Rowen Porter Vancouver, British Columbia
