Up the street from this hotel building
I sit alone with my beliefs
Contradicted by a memory of sunlight
She leaves no sentiment for me

(Please could you help me sleep when I'm dreaming?)

Drawn from memory he knows her call
Sees the world through different eyes
No-one can see me in the labyrinth inside
But I still fall saleep and try

(Please could you help me wake when I'm screaming?)

But I am locked inside her service
It seems like we're falling inbetween
These green apple trees bring no comfort for me
It feels like it's 'Love in the time of cholera' for me

Down the street from this ruined cathedral
I sleep alone beneath the stars
Mercury was falling through a gap beneath the waves
Broken by the love that went too far

(Please could you let me sleep when I'm dreaming?)

Rivers running through me but they cannot find the sea
Cholera has turned them all to green
Now her lover hangs in balance in the leaves
But til he falls I won't be free

(Can't someone help me wake when I'm screaming?)


The General in his maze
Writes four songs that can't be erased
The cavalry of pawns
Sing of love and other demons
And I can't believe that you read them all for me
I feels like it's 'Love in the time of cholera' for me
It seems like there's solitude beneath
But could you tell me when I'm drifting off to sleep?
