The sun sets in the west as the panic grips my chest
And the monsters in a little boys closet come to life
The shadows on the wall, they rise before they fall
And the window sill is covered in dust and lies

The dream turns to a nightmare in the blink of an eye
The clouds that I've been dancing on all begin to cry
But soon enough I know that I will wake up by your side
I'll look you in the eye and know that everything's alright

As midnight embarks and the moon takes the dark
The light on your smiling face is all I see
And as your eyelids flutter and you stir beneath the covers
I know that you are dreaming about me

The dream turns to a nightmare in the blink of an eye
The clouds that you've been dancing on all begin to cry
But soon enough you know that you will wake up by my side
I'll look you in the eye and tell you everything is fine

And when the dawn breaks the night
I'll awake by your side
We'll know that everything's right
How could this be wrong?

The nightmare turns into a dream
I look at you, you're so serene
But still there's a feeling that I can't seem to shake
You're just too perfect to be true
I must have only dreamed of you
That's when I pinch myself to know that I'm awake
...And there you are
And everything is alright...
