If I were to sleep

If I were to dream again

Would you be there?

Alone in my head?

It's been a year

And you're still here

Not only in my dreams

You're in my reality

You're in my fears

You could leave

You could run off

To somewhere better

You could look at me

Fall in love

And we could run off

To somewhere better

.

If I were to dream again

I would ask you all my questions

I would look in your eyes

And see what honesty lies

But only in my dreams

Would you tell the truth

Only in my dreams

Everything would change

We would fall in love

And forever keep our youth

.

If I could fall asleep again

If I could dream and live with you in my head

I would never again

Open my eyes

I would never watch you leave

I would never say my goodbyes

If I could close my tired eyes

And think of you

If I could lay in darkness

And watch the neon lights consume you

I promise you, I would never wake up

I wouldn't dream of wanting to.
