"When You Sleep" as written by and Robert Duncan Mcvey....
You don't know what you do to me
You don't know what you do to me
I don't know what I want to be
And I know what I want to be

You don't know what you do to me
You don't know what you do to me
I don't know what I want to be
You don't know what you do to me

(only when you sleep)
Can't believe it feels like
(only when you sleep)
Fight fire, can't forget
(only when you sleep)
All's changing, now its real
(only when you sleep)
Can't believe the way I feel

You don't know what you do to me
(only when you sleep)
You don't know what you do to me
(only when you sleep)
Couldn't stop if I made you see
(only when you sleep)
You don't know what you do to me

(only when you sleep)
Can't believe it feels like
(only when you sleep)
Fight fire, can't forget
(only when you sleep)
All's changing, now its real
(only when you sleep)
Can't believe the way I feel

Ever-lasting, still unchanging
Ever-lasting, still unchanging
Ever-lasting
Still

(only when you sleep)
Can't believe it feels like
(only when you sleep)
Fight fire, can't forget
(only when you sleep)
All's changing, now its real
(only when you sleep)
Can't believe the way I feel
(only when you sleep)

You don't know what you do to me
(only when you sleep)
You don't know what you do to me
(only when you sleep)
You don't know what you do to me
(only when you sleep)
You don't know what you do to me

    General CommentThis song is wonderful. I think he's talking about the endless possiblities of your dreams. How anything can happen.

    General CommentHe keeps his emotions inside.He cant tell her how he feels(maybe because he is afraid of what she'll say).He can only confess when she is asleep. "All's changing, now its real" to me,means that she was in a relationship but she isnt anymore."Ever-lasting, still unchanging" speaks about his love for her.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song, so emotive, just perfect. To me, it's about someone who's in love with another person and coming to terms with it, maybe telling them, maybe just keeping it insde.

    I always thought it was "can't believe the chills i get"

    But never mind.
