I, I heard
"I will be watching you"
I, I heard
"I will be watching you"

When the light floods in
Will you hold me close?
And the time in between
Sleep and dreams
Belongs to us

No you won't sleep alone
(I'll sleep, I'll, I'll sleep a little closer to you)
No you won't sleep alone
(I'll sleep, I'll, I'll sleep a little closer to you)

I, I heard
"I will be watching you"
I, I heard
"I will be watching you"

When the crowds flood in
Will you hold me close?
And the thoughts in between
Sleep and dreams
Belong to us

No you won't sleep alone
(I'll sleep, I'll, I'll sleep a little closer to you)
No you won't sleep alone
(I'll sleep, I'll, I'll sleep a little closer to you)

You won't sleep alone
(I'll sleep, I'll, I'll sleep a little closer to you)
No, you won't sleep alone
(I'll sleep, I'll, I'll sleep a little closer to you)
Alone...

Alone...

    General CommentI think it's "I'll sleep a little closer to you"
    But this song has a pretty obvious meaning with simple lyrics that make it all the better

    General CommentThe part "when the light floods in, will you hold me close?" I think what he means is "when the morning comes will you still be holding me" considering the rest of the verse is about sleep and dreaming. Also the last verses say "you won't sleep alone" he'll sleep with her.

    General Commenti saw them live last night again in ny
    and picked up the full length album finallyy
    but this song isn't on it =[

    jamison's lyrics are so easy to relate to and he performs with such emotion..
    and they're pretty much the coolest people ever
