"Watch You Sleeping" as written by and William James Iii Mc Auley....
I wanna watch you sleeping peaceful
Resting your heart and your soul
We should never awake without the other
Lying by our side

I wanna learn from the calm with which you
Aim at your dreams and your goals
And I'm sure your stories always will unfold

I try to get you up
But you go down
And you are not okay

I wanna carry you
But you won't get up
It's really killing me
You know it's killing me

I wanna join you sleeping peaceful
Feeling the sun in our room
What a plenty of rays and beaming light
Surely, it does me good

I wanna trust the pulse
In which decay is followed by bloom
And I'm sure any flaw will turn out beautiful

    General CommentThis song is very touching. It's a nice love song without a mushy-gooshy essence. It's songs like this that make me thank the U.K.

    General Commentits about a lover who wants to save their partner from the depression they are in. i think its applicable with addiction aswell.
    but it can relate to any relationship, not just romantic. I think it was writen from a lovers point of view because of the line: "We should never awake without the other
    Lying by our side".

    none the less its beautiful. and i'm sure many can relate to the person trying to help the other. or the depressed person, who is becomming a burden, though neither person wants to admit it. but its clear to both of them.

    eventually it gets too much. and its no one persons job to save someone else. shes done all she can w/o completely sacrificing herself.

    My Interpretationfrom my opinion with my boy friend who's depressed often and dieing of cancer, i just want to hold him and i want to make him happy. but he never tells me alot bout how he feels, and he wont let me help him. he says i help him just talking to him, but i wish i could do more you know? its so hard to watch him like this, and depressed often, it really kills me. i just wish i could make him happy and lift his burdens.
    its also a great love song, how you can relate by wanting to wake up next to them and how you should never be without them, and how beautiful it is to wake up in the peaceful morning with them. also
    "I wanna trust the pulse
    In which decay is followed by bloom
    And I'm sure any flaw will turn out beautiful"
    that could be how, ever part of that person that is a flaw is perfect to you because you love them, no matter what or who they are.
    i really think its about a love partner who is depressed and dosent want to burden you by you trying to help them up and how it kills you, and how sometimes you just want to lay with them and just enjoy the peaceful things

    My Interpretationthis song is so beautiful, infact i just love Blue Foundation songs in general. but this song really caught me off guard. i feel like it is about loving someone, and seeing them suffer, but they will not love you back.
