Didn't Mean to Wake You

posted May 20, 2009, 11:41 AM by David Storlie

You tell me not
to open my voice
when you're sleeping
and never take you
into my arms
if you're dreaming

You tell me not to touch you
when your fantasy land has come
and you escape your demon
but how did I lose the girl
who always used to keep me
from sleeping.

You tell me not to play
my guitar when you're dreaming
of course I shouldn't
kiss you
my lips obstruct
your breathing

You tell me that you'll leave me
if I don't give
you time to relax
But when did I lose the girl
who always kept me never
from sleeping.

I told you
"I have written a song
just this evening"
But you whispered
"tomorrow my love,
I'm dreaming"

I said to you
"Our future is gone
if tomorrow offers nothing
but dreaming."
I want you to
share those things
that make you wish
you always were sleeping.
