Time slips across my mind
Flowing through the gears that grind
Laying in a trance-like sleep
Counting minutes, counting sheep.
Dreams come and go like smoke
Each one does my heart evoke
And from my grasp each dream evades
While behind my eyelids each parades.
Dreams of heaven dreams of hell
Dreams so dark i shouldn't tell
Dreams that wake me in the night
Dreams that blot out all the light.
Lips that graze across my cheek
Stop the oozing tears that leak
Lost inside my silent slumber
Teary kisses hold me under.
But am i now too lost to find
The blinking EXIT in my mind?
I worry that its grown too late
For from these dreams i cant escape!
Find me, keep me, bring me back
Before my whole world turns to black
And when you find me hold me tight
Bring me closer to the light.
Wake me from this sleep my dear
I've been asleep too long i fear
But if i've stayed too long this way
With me, in dreams, i hope you'll stay.
