Sleep With One Eye Open (Cute Love's song challenge!)

Poem by: Sambelini

Summary

Well, this is not my best work but it is about the song Awakening by Switchfoot, and it is not half as good as the song but oh well :)
PS: this picture is pretty cool,eh? It's supposed to look like a closed eye with an open eye sort of on top, if you know what I mean.

\"\"

Awake, I lie asleep and see

The many things that torment me

Asleep, I lie awake and know

There’s so much more, I have to go

 

In the street I walk alone

Darkness chills my every bone

Sleepwalk through the city streets

My eyes are wide beneath my sheets

 

The sky is falling, stars are bright

Cars are flying through the night

I can dream or I can live

There’s so much more, I have to give

 

I mistook your for a star

When I saw your speeding car

A shooting star, I wished on you

And never saw my wish come true

 

I’ve lost sight of dreams and goals

I need to sleep as morning tolls

My heart is missing Sabbath rest

And worldly worries fill my chest

 

Where is the hope that dreams can give?

What is the life we’re meant to live?

Here, our world is falling fast

There’s no more dreams, they couldn’t last

 

Talking when there’s no one there

My sleepless dreams, I have to share

When I’m awake I soon forget

But today I see hope yet.

 

Awake, I walk asleep and see

The world is not what it should be

Asleep, I walk awake and know

There is a place that we can go.
