Your toothbrush is still next to mine
Your clothes are hanging in the closet
And I'm still living here
You paid the deposit
Now the future is unknown
But I'm not sleeping alone

I'm sleeping with a memory
I'm sleeping with regret
I'm sleeping with a fantasy that I can't let go of yet
Half of me is you
Everything I own
I feel you beside me
Oh, I'm not sleeping alone

I'm not sleeping alone
I'm not sleeping alone

Hey, I wonder where you are tonight
What's going through your head
Hey I'm doing all right
On my side of the bed
You think I'm here on my own
But I'm not sleeping alone

I'm sleeping with a memory
I'm sleeping with regret
I'm sleeping with a fantasy that I can't let go of yet
Half of me is you
Everything I own
I feel you beside me
Oh, I'm not sleeping alone

I'm not sleeping alone
I'm not sleeping alone
You think I'm on my own
I'm not sleeping alone

When I put my head on the pillow
And I enter the world of my dreams
Everything is as it was before
Still loving me
You're still loving me
You think I'm here on my own
But I'm not sleeping alone

I'm sleeping with a memory
I'm sleeping with regret
I'm sleeping with a fantasy that I can't let go of yet
Half of me is you
Everything I own
I feel you beside me
Oh, I'm not sleeping alone

I'm not sleeping alone
I'm not sleeping alone
You think I'm on my own
I'm not sleeping alone
Oh and I still feel you beside me
So you know, I'm not sleeping alone

    General CommentIt's kinda obvious what's going on here. She left him and things are as if she never left in their apartment. He wonders how she's doing as she lives it up thinking he's now all alone and lonely, he's still hung up on her. He's not sleeping alone because of all the bad emotions he holds over her. And when he goes to sleep, in his dreams, everything goes back to how it used to be..
    I love it. It perfectely phrases how you feel after someone breaks up with you. You're not really "alone" after they leave you. You've got the heartbreak.
