Sleeping takes time
when the one thing on your mind
just happens to be you

I turn my head
and the sheets on this bed
have a cold my body heat can’t cut through

and I’ve made it so my rest
carries only your scent
and now I smell like you

I turn my head
and the moonlight sheds
a glow that only makes me blue

Yes, sleeping’s a dread
lying in a bed
that doesn’t contain you

and the clock says two
am I on your mind
or are you sleeping through?

I’m gonna close my eyes
It’s you I visualize
but that is nothing new

I’m awake and waiting on you….

…and I rip this bedspread up
tear the sheets into strips
lying here alone, an empty cup
kiss at the ready, for your lips

I’m awake and burning for you….
