On a summer night I can float above the roof
and beneath me in the lane I'll find you waiting.
Close your eyes and bite your lip, count to seven and go with it.
We'll be apart no more above... above.

I'm made of velveteen bone, you know, and that's what makes me float.
So I can't be really certain you will float when you're alone
but if you're eyes are shut and on the ground knock on my window
for me, love.

We don't have to stay awake, it can happen in your head.
Everything is just a matter of time.
It is almost like a dream but it's really just a place
that isn't hard to find.
And I really like the feeling, baby. Once you're thee I know you'll
never wanna go back to the lane beneath you, so I'll hold you
as you close your eyes.

You don't have to stay awake, but remember that in time
you will never be allowed to leave again.
You don't have to be awake, it can happen in your head
everything is just a matter of time.
Could we stay a little while, float another seven miles.
All I really want is to be here now. ( x3 )
We don't have to be awake.
