I just brushed my teeth
You know what that means
A mouth full of foam
And Im staring at me

Im singing in your voice
Ive been practicing
Hoping one day
To hear the real thing

And maybe, youd actually stand next to me
And spit on the back of my neck
While Im leaning, in the sink
And youd laugh at me while I kiss your cheek
If youd let me (regular)
If youd let me (falsetto)

Now we have a plan
You giggled in your hands
You try to convince me
That the sounds in the trees

And footsteps in the woods
Are monsters up to no good
Ill take first watch
If you promise youll sleep

Next to me, so I can learn your face
With my hand, just in case
We never meet again
At least Ill have this memory
If youd let me (hold out)
If youd let me (high)

Im working on the floor
Of our majestic tree fort
You know... The one where we live
Away from everyone else

If were gonna keep them out
We should find a taller tree
Move to the top
Where no one can see

Well need thicker walls
And permanent guard
But for now its your turn to watch
And its my turn to sleep

Then it hit me, this whole time Ive been asleep
And you, were never even
Next to me, it was just a dream
So Ill stay asleep and meet you in dreams
If youd let me
