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.
