i whisper i love you
into your ear
i don't know
if you even hear
a word that i say
'cause you're lying there
i hope you're dreaming of me

we need to know that
you're not a () case
( )
(feel nice to say back to me?)

you're sleeping
all of the time
you're sleeping
all of the time

when was the last time that
you saw a morning
when was the last time that i
saw your face
smiling awake like
it was in the old days
maybe you're dreaming of then

i wait around for you
watching the clock go around
and around and now the day is all gone
and i miss you

you're sleeping
all of the time
you're sleeping
all of the time

i love to go
under your pillow
i hope you find it soon
maybe you'll call me someday

do you remember when i used to wake you
each morning with kisses, you'd kiss me too
that was so long ago now i just slip away
quietly so as not to disturb you

i've only got so much time in the day to be with you
i'd love to be with you always but...
just nuts about you

you're sleeping
all of the time
you're sleeping
all of the time

you're sleeping
all of the time
you're sleeping
all of the time

    General CommentI always understood the lyrics like this:
    "we need to know
    you're not awake just in case you turn at me, it would be nice to say back to me"

    "I left a note under your pillow..." (instead of I love to go under your pillow...)

    Anyway, this really is my song :)

    Lyric Correctioni whisper i love you
    into your ear
    i don't know
    if you even hear
    a word that i say
    'cause you're lying there
    i hope you're dreaming of me

    we need to know that
    you're not awake just in case
    you don't have anything
    nice to say back to me

    you're sleeping
    all of the time
    you're sleeping
    all of the time

    when was the last time that
    you saw a morning
    when was the last time that i
    saw your face
    smiling awake like
    it was in the old days
    maybe you're dreaming of then

    i wait around for you
    watching the clock go around
    and around and now the day is all gone
    and i miss you

    you're sleeping
    all of the time
    you're sleeping
    all of the time

    i left a note
    under your pillow
    i hope you find it soon
    maybe you'll call me someday

    do you remember when i used to wake you
    each morning with kisses, you'd kiss me too
    that was so long ago now i just slip away
    quietly so as not to disturb you

    i've only got so much time in the day to be with you
    i'd love to be with you always but...
    just nuts about you

    you're sleeping
    all of the time
    you're sleeping
    all of the time

    you're sleeping
    all of the time
    you're sleeping
    all of the time
