So messed up, I want you here In my room, I want you here And now we're gonna be face to face And I'll lay right down in my favorite place And now I wanna be your dog And now I wanna be your dog And now I wanna be your dog Oh, come on Well now I'm gonna close my eyes Now I'm gonna close my mind And now I'm gonna touch your hand As I loose my heart in the burning sand And now I wanna be your dog And now I wanna be your dog And now I wanna be your dog Oh, come on

This could be you in my arms Not the strangers I substitute This could be you in my arms This could be you The driving has never been easy Treasure's not worth the steal Eyes will get heavy with strain and heartache Wild roads and devils appeals Well maybe you got what you wanted By forcing my hand at all times I hope now when you're sleepin' alone You're dreaming 'bout still being mine This could be you in my arms Not the strangers I substitute This could be you in my arms This could be you Well if you had givin' us Instead of giving up Just a little more time Been a little more faithful Just a little more faithful Maybe change your mind I trust that you cannot recall Mountainside misty repast Laid out near waters in cool clean air Romances not meant to last Well if you should find yourself wanting Someone to brush of regrets Sincere green-eyed and beautiful love I ask that you never forget This could be you in my arms Not the strangers I substitute This could be you in my arms This could be you Oh, this could be you in my arms Not the strangers I substitute This could be you in my arms This could be you

about

Not for Sleepin' is the debut EP from Chicago soul powerhouse, The Congregation.

The soulful debut EP from The Congregation – seven songs from an eight piece Chi group steeped in classic soul styles from Motown to Memphis, Philly and Chicago! The sound is remarkably assured, almost perfectly realized live band soul, all the more incredible given their relative youth. It sounds like the work of a group that's been at it for decades rather than just a year – fronted by powerfully soulful vocalist Gina Bloom – with guitarist Charlie Wayne and drummer Dan Wendt co-writing the original songs, plus Brian Crane on trumpet, Nick Nottoli on trombone, Joe DeBord on bass, Jay St. Germain on sax and Chuck Sansone on keys. A little bit of funk, a little bit of rocking soul and a little bit of electric blues roll into their sound – truly strong, standout stuff from a group that's only getting started. You get the feeling that the best is definitely yet to come from them – and they're pretty great already! Includes solid originals "Not For Sleepin'", "This Could Be You", "He's Gone", "A Good Man Is Hart To Find" and "Save The Wine" – plus a sultry soul cover of "I Wanna Be Your Dog" (yes, really!) and a sweet take on the ever adaptable "Little Sister". © 1996-2011, Dusty Groove America, Inc.
