"Catch Me While I'm Sleeping" as written by Alecia B Moore and Linda Perry....
How many times have set the rules for me
And how many times have you told me you were leavin'
I'm not trying to listen
Cause it's all the same
And why
Why are you constantly believin'
That I could give you what you need and
Baby, baby please don't put your faith in me
I don't know what to say 'cause it's all in a dream to me anyway

You can catch me while I'm sleeping
While I'm dreamin' too
Its a lonely lonely lonely place for me baby
It must get lonely for you too

Them people always fallin'
In and out of love and it can be pretty painful too
And baby oh baby I'm just not strong enough
Sad but true so tell me what's the use?


So catch me while I'm sleeping
When I'm dreaming too
So catch me while I'm sleeping

[Chorus: x2]

(catch me while I'm falling)

(it's a lonely lonely lonely lonely place)

(must be lonely for you too)

    General CommentWow, no one commented on this? Well I think this is one of her best songs. Methinks it's about when your lonley, you know when it feels like your falling in a pre-petual (sp?) nightmare an' ya just want someone to catch you.

    General CommentI think it's about feeling unworthy for the love of somebody else. And the only time you deserve it is when you sleep, because then you can be all that you want to be. Just a thought. =]
