watching_you_sleep

There’s a mouse in the kitchen tonight, someone turn the light on,
and I woke in a terrible fright, dreaming of a bygone,
but I feel everything is alright watching you sleep..

There’s a shadow on the ceiling tonight, someone get a broom out,
and I woke in a terrible fright, staring down an old doubt,
but I feel everything is alright watching you sleep…
+++ watching you sleep,
+++ counting your sheep as they wander by, 88, 89
+++ watching you sleep,
+++ making my peace with the world outside..

There’s a devil in my dreaming tonight, he knows where my heart lies,
and I woke with the terrible sight in mind of all my compromise,
but I’m calmed in the elegant light,
dissolved by the delicate sight,
and I believe everything is alright, watching you sleep…
+++ watching you sleep,

but I’m calmed in the elegant light,
dissolved by the delicate sight,
and I believe everything is alright, watching you sleep…
