Didn't Mean to Wake You

Post date: May 20, 2009 6:41:41 PM

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.
