When We Were Sleeping

from Dan Whitehouse by Dan Whitehouse



When We Were Sleeping

I want light, I want love, I want the fear of falling over taken from my hands.
I want days, I want hours, I want a night that’s never over,
do you understand?

Moments are there to take you away.
Times we can share, I want to stay.

When we were sleeping it all became clear.

Here I am this is me as still as a dead man beside you.

Then your skin reached my skin and for a second it felt like you crawled in.

These moments we share they do not compare.

For what I’m feeling now I could not prepare.

When we were sleeping it all became clear.

When we were sleeping you took away my fear.

I searched for years telling everyone I meet all about you.
I had so many important things to do, then I met you.
Now all I have is you, now all I want is you.
