When I'm Asleep

lyrics

When I’m Asleep
Sometimes nighttime brings a face to view,
Shaded and alone upon the crowd.
You seem so clear though I never hold onto
A face that clear enough to find you now.
Precious as you may be, you’re only real when I’m asleep,
I only hope you’ll find me before I’m too weak.
Lost and sometime I hope I’m never found.
Knowing you’re alone upon my mind,
Curled in corners with tangled arms
Around a patient picture drawn for me to find.
Precious as you may be, you’re only real when I’m asleep,
I only hope you’ll find me before I’m too weak.
Oh I never wait for love to make its lonely stand,
Never wait for fate I always force my hand,
Never wanted to believe it’s never found twice around.
Precious as you may be you’re only real when I’m asleep,
I only hope you’ll find me
Because sometimes all I have to help me through
Are memories of a time I’m holding to
