in sleep lyrics – lissie

“in sleep”

i lay awake at night and pray
not to see the light of day
i wonder how to behave right
he has left me such a mess
counting to protest
my mind can’t get no rest

fast asleep where i keep my memories
he’s calling me out in dreams
he visits me
what will be
will i see him again soon?

why am i so terrified of waking?
he’s gone and i feel i’ve been forsaken
in sleep is the only place i get to see him, get to love him

the scene, a city after dawn
becomes a field of corn
and i’ve had this one before

fast asleep where i keep my memories
he’s calling me out in dreams
he visits me
what will be
will i see him again soon?

why am i so terrified of waking?
he’s gone and i feel i’ve been forsaken
in sleep is the only place i get to see him, get to love him

i know that when the story ends
the one that’s in my head
well, i’ll be alone again

why am i so terrified of waking?
he’s gone and i feel i’ve been forsaken
in sleep is the only place i get to see him, get to love him

why am i so terrified of waking?
he’s gone and i feel i’ve been forsaken
in sleep is the only place i get to see him, get to love him
be with him, i love him, i love him, i love him
