Sleeping

I turn to my side as I open up my eyes,
hoping I’ll see your silhouette in front of me.
Were you here at all?
Will I hear footsteps down the hall?
But no one’s there.
And I know I should get up
‘cause I’ve laid here long enough to think.

Was it just a dream that you were right here
sleeping next to me, in our bed at home,
the sheets feel so warm, but then I wake up alone.

I reach for the telephone
as the only means to feel you breathing close to me.
We can talk all day and forget you’ve gone away every day.
But how long is enough
before I feel your touch again?

Was it just a dream that you were right here
sleeping next to me, in our bed at home,
the sheets feel so warm, but then I wake up alone.
I wake up alone.

I don’t want to spend another day
wandering the empty space where you once stood.
I just want to hold you here at night
and live our lives the way we said we would.

Was it just a dream that you were right here
sleeping next to me, in our bed at home,
the sheets feel so warm, but then I wake up alone.
I can’t take waiting, I need you right here
sleeping next to me.

But now those days are gone, today you’re here to stay.
Tonight when I go to sleep, you’ll be here with me.
