  • I lay awake at night and pray
    Not to see the light of day
    And I wonder how to behave right
    He has left me such a mess
    Counting to protest
    My mind can't get no rest

    Fast asleep where I keep my memories
    He's calling me out in dreams
    He visits me
    What will be?
    Will I see him again soon?
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Why am I so terrified of waking?
    He's gone and I feel I've been forsaken
    In sleep is the only place I get to see him, get to love him

    It seems a city after dawn
    Becomes a field of corn
    I've had this one before

    Fast asleep where I keep my memories
    Calling me out in dreams
    He visits me
    What will be?
    Will I see him again soon?
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Why am I so terrified of waking?
    He's gone and I feel I've been forsaken
    In sleep is the only place I get to see him, get to love him

    AndI know that when the story ends
    The one that's in my head
    Well, I'll be alone again

    Why am I so terrified of waking?
    He's gone and I feel I've been forsaken
    In sleep is the only place I get to see him, get to love him
    Why am I so terrified of waking?
    He's gone and I feel I've been forsaken
    In sleep is the only place I get to see him, get to love him
    Be with him
    I love him, I love him, I love him
