"Smile In Your Sleep" as written by Shane Told, Neil Boshart, Joshua Bradford, William Hamilton and Paul Koehler....
When I'm lying in your bed
Play the motions through my head
You know that I'm thinking, I'm thinking
And I have reasons to believe
That I'm not the only one you spend this time with
But I'll stay

You say,
You're weak,
You won't let me down,
You won't let me down
You lied,
Through your teeth,
You smiled in your sleep,
You smile in your sleep

When we met
You said that we were the same
You know that we're different,
We're different
And all those time you promised me that
Everything would work out in the end
You were gravely mistaken

You say,
You're weak
You won't let me down,
You won't let me down
You lied,
Through your teeth
You smiled in your sleep,
You smile in your sleep

You lied
You lied
You lied
You lied
You lied,
Through your teeth
You won't let me down
You lied,
I deserve better then this

I dream of steel
Maroon and warm
Your end (Your end)
Your end (Your end)
You gasp for air

I'll see this through
I'll see through you
You're pale (You're pale)
You're pale (You're pale)
You're pale
Blue eyes

When your lying in your bed,
Your eulogy's been read,
You know that it's fitting
You lied

You say
Your weak
You wont let me down
You wont let me down
You lied
Through your teeth
You smiled in your sleep
You smile in your sleep

You smile
You smile
You smile
You smile
I deserve better than this

    General CommentTo quote the band..
    "The song, Smile In Your Sleep is a dark song about jealousy, deception and ultimately murder."

    To me, the narrator of this song becomes so heartbroken by his lover that he eventually kills him / her, thus the metaphor of 'smiling in their sleep'.

    General Commentshe promises him that she would never cheat on him but yet he knows that she is. She sweetened him with words to make him stay, saying they were the same and were meant to but, but she was wrong, he dreams of killing her in his sleep with a knife, her blood red and warm, she is in her death bed and finally got what she deserved for lying and cheating

    General CommentHe actually said the following about this song - "First time we went to the UK, I was super jet lagged and I crashed out in my bunk. Slept for like 14 hours and had the most fucked up dreams. Woke up and I had no idea where I was and I literally thought I had murdered someone. Wrote the song about that."

    General Commentto correct the lyrics:

    when i'm lying in your bed, play the motions through my head. You know that i'm tihnking, i'm thinking...and i have reasons to believe that im not the only one you spend this time with, but i'll stay.
    (chorus)
    You say you're weak, you won't let me down, you won't let me down. You lie through your teeth, you smile in your sleep, you smile in your sleep.

    When we met you said we were the same. You know that we're different, we're different. And all the times you promised me that everything would work out in the end, you were gravely mistaken.

    (chorus)

    You lie, you lie, you lie, you lie through your teeth, you won't let me down, you lie, i deserve better then this! i dream of steel, maroon and warm, your end. You gasp for air, i'll see this through, i'll see through you, your pale blue eyes.

    When your lying in your bed, your eulogy's been read, you know that it's fitting, you lie.

    (chorus)


    you smile, you smile, you smile, i deserve better then this!
