We slept in this room together
but now you're gone
It's so quiet, I turned the TV on

We lived in this room together
We painted the walls
Now time doesn't stand still -- it crawls

And I'm afraid to sleep
cause if I do I'll dream of you
And the dreams are always deep
on the pillow where I'll weep

I never realized how much I was in love with you
till you started sleeping with someone new
Last night I dreamed again, and you were there
You kissed my face; you touched my hair

And I'm afraid to sleep
cause if I do I'll dream of you
And the dreams are always deep
on the pillow where I'll weep

Lyin' alone in the darkness
with a memory in my head
There's a big hole where my heart is
and a lonlely feeling rolling 'round my bed

And I'm afraid to sleep
cause if I do I'll dream of you
And dreams are always deep
on the pillow where I'll weep

On the pillow where I'll weep
I'm afraid to sleep
