I lie awake feeling poetic at times,
Writing pathetic lines,
While this rotting clock still chimes,
An hour or two I won't get back.
No...I won't relax,
And let you walk all over me.
So now I feel my heartbeat slow,
With sudden vertigo,
As my memory can only show,
You to who I really am.
The words behind the man...

...As the walls fall around me.
And the waves crash and drown me.
While you sleep.

I'll whisper words on the wind.
You're the air I breathe in.
While you dream about everything you left behind,
I'm still here waiting...for you.

So do you know about the photos in the drawer,
Of the moments they record,
Or the memories I still adore.
I wonder if I'll ever look back,
On this and laugh...

...As the walls fall around me.
And the waves crash and drown me.
While you sleep.

You say the night is beautiful.
That we're one in the same.
I'm not sure if it's the cold,
Or the way we touch,
That makes you shiver when you say my name.
