I woke up tired and feeling old
And I wondered why by bed was cold
And I thought could you have gone?
And if so where and how long?
And why would I let you go?
Why would I ever let you go?

Oh but sometimes my mind could tell my heart that yes is no
Like sometime I might wake up old and all alone

Oh no, what if I never knew your name?
Oh my god, the thought's insane
What if your love is not the same
As it seems inside my brain?
What if you're not really in my sheets?
Oh, just the thought gives me the creeps

I woke up young in lovers love
And I felt my luck when I felt your touch
And my skin it wondered how
Yeah, my skin it wondered how
Could you be touching me right now
When in my sleep you can't be found?

Oh but somehow by some will we've carried our love through the years
Oh but somehow I still carry on, burdened by fears

Like oh, what if I never knew your name?
Oh my god, the thought's insane
What if your love is not the same
As it seems inside my brain?
What if you're not really in my sheets?
Oh, just the thought gives me the creeps

Oh no, what if I never knew your name?
Oh my god, the thought's insane
What if your love is not the same
As it seems inside my brain?
What if you're not really in my sheets?
Oh, just the thought gives me the creeps

Oh no, just the thought gives me the creeps

    General Commenti think it's about being so in love with someone, that imagining your life without them would be impossible. thinking how awful it would be if you never even knew their name. i like this direction. i hope the new cd is more like this than zavd.

    Lyric CorrectionHere are the lyrics from the CD insert :)

    I woke up tired and feeling old
    And I wondered why my bed was cold

    And I thought could you have gone?
    And if so where and how long?
    And why would I let you go?
    Why would I ever let you go?

    Oh sometimes my mind can tell my heart that yes is no
    Like sometime I might wake up old and all alone

    Oh no, what if I never knew your name?
    Oh my God, the thought's insane
    What if your love is not the same
    As it seems inside my brain
    What if you're not really in my sheets
    Oh, just the thought gives me the creeps

    I woke up young in lovers love
    And I felt my luck when I felt your touch
    And my skin it wondered how
    Yeah, my skin it wondered how
    could you be touching me right now?
    When in my sleep you can't be found?

    Oh somehow by some will we've carried our love through the years
    And somehow I still carry on burdened by fears ...

    Oh no, just the thought gives me the creeps

    General Comment"normally i feel pretty good about everything in my life. i have somebody who loves me and i try to be the kinda person that deserves it. but sometimes you sort of close your eyes and you can't help but think, "what if i don't deserve it? what if its not even real? what if i open my eyes and it turns out i live alone in a studio apartment in van nuys and all i have is my collection of miniaturized carousel horses?". theres those dreams where you win the lottery and it seems so real and then you wake up and you still feel like you have all that money for like 20 seconds. but you realize you totally don't. what if our relationship is like that? anyways, i'm pretty sure inception stole this idea from me."

    General Commentit's about a guy who is REALLY afraid that his lover doesnt love him back like the way he thinks... and the thought gives him the creeps.

    "when in my sleep you can't be found"
    does this mean he cant dream of her?

    such a sad song. :(

    My InterpretationI also think this song is about a guy who is so in love, it seems too good to be real. Sometimes he worries that he's just imagining their love and it scares him.
