"Watching You Sleep" as written by and William James Iii Mc Auley....
The streetlight whines through my cheap venetian blinds
The hip-hop beats will not go to sleep
So I slip outside and go stalkin' in the night
'Cause I don't know what to do about my life

So I'm watchin' you sleep
Right outside your window
Inches away from sleepin' with you
And you don't even know it
Watchiin' you sleep all night

All day long I've been sleepin' like a log
I dream your face through the window at your place
I guess it's wrong, but I've been lonely for so long
And I don't know what to do about my life

So I'm watchin' you sleep
Right outside your window
Inches away from sleepin' with you
Dreamin' in the deep end
Watchin' you sleep all night

I confess, I looked up your work address
It wasn't fate that bumped into you that day
But it's still me who holds your hand when you're asleep
'Cause you don't know what to do about your life

So I'm watchin' you sleep
Right outside your window
Inches away from sleepin' with you
And you don't even know it
Watchin' you sleep

    General CommentThis is a sweet sounding song that from the first listen sounds really sweet but when you really listen to it, you realize the guy is a stalker.
