Lissie In Sleep Lyrics

sponsored links
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
