You might sleep, but you'll never dream
Onward, progress, or so it seems.
You might laugh, but you'll never smile.
Come on in and waste away awhile.

My stomach swears there's comfort there
In the warmth of the blankets on your bed
My stomach's always been a liar,
I'll believe it's lies again.

No use in saying how I'm sorry
So I'm trying not to speak
I'll sing in silence as I lay beside you
With my face against your cheek

When dreams of rings of flowers fade and blur,
Giving way to that familiar ill,
Come over, come over
Where I'm waiting for you

No use in saying how I'm sorry
So I'm trying not to speak
I'll sing in silence as I lay beside you
With my face against your cheek

If you'd unlatch the window,
If you'd let me lay there on your floor
If you'd give me another chance,
If you'd forget the pain I caused before

    General Commentdontletthemscareyou:
    you can find this track after the last song of A --> B Life... it's right after "the cure for pain" (the last song) at about min. 10.50... it's basicaly brilliant- so check it out as soon as you can!

    General CommentIf all of mewithoutYou's songs sounded more like this; I'd probably be a lot more interested in them. Not that I don't like them, they are quite terrific.



    I was in a car with a lovely bearded man when I first heard this song. They both mean a lot to me.

    General Commentto "thereisnotthere" - don't get me wrong, this song is really beautiful (mainly because of the lyrics) but you say you'd want more of there songs to sound like this?

    i'm completely disagree.

    however lovely this song is, how many times have you heard songs like it?
    with other mewithoutYou songs, e.g. gentlemen, silencer, nice and blue.. these are some of the most original songs in any music scene.

    not to mention there lyrics are truely amazing.

    General Commenti absolutely love this song, but I was wondering who the vocalist is because I feel like Aaron's voice would be more distinct. Is is Mike? I met Mike when they played in New York the other week and it slipped my mind to ask him.

    He did tell me their drummer, Richard, makes the set list, and he is never really in the mood to play first album material while Mike still loves them, especially Silencer.

    Am I special? No, just felt like sharing.
