During the night, we're what we used to be:

We're sleeping and you breathe against me,

So slowly, dreaming away.

But now we're awake and I can't take listening as

You get up and leave the bed we made, alone.

 

So where did it go, why can't we sleep

Since the first time we laid across the bed?

We were young, were dying to be undressed and raw,

To touch what we've never felt before.

 

But now harsh words, like roaring storms

Took away dreaming of the best.

We were pretending nothing's wrong,

But that didn't make it happiness.

 

So where did it go, why can't we sleep

Just so we could keep reliving the nights

We fell asleep to the softness of your breath,

So slowly, dreaming away?

 

Oh, now harsh words, like roaring storms,

Are apparent in the staleness of your distress;

And I can't breathe, I can't keep you from leaving,

 

This isn't like before

(and under all your clothes

Are red and raw just like the dreams)

We were pretending nothing's wrong

But that didn't make it happiness.

 

I want to keep reliving the nights

(and under all your clothes

Are red and raw just like the dreams)

Where I fall back asleep as you breathe against me,

So slowly, dreaming away...

Back to what used to be us.
