I hear a telephone ring
As water’s surging through the mains
And pounding in my ears.
The thunder keeps on rolling
And sends a chill straight through my veins.
A weight upon my chest
‘Cause you won’t let me rest.

And the storm is coming now.
The storm is coming now.

I cannot sleep
While you stay dreaming
What I long to keep
Just keeps on running

With hands held high,
Your hair runs wild.
You find your freedom where I can't tread
You find your comfort in another's bed.

A gentle, soft reminder
Of exactly what I lack
And that I hold the blame
You hang just like a shadow
And I keep, I keep looking back
To see if I can find
Some lonely peace of mind.

But I can’t shake you now, oh no.
I can’t shake you now.

I cannot sleep
While you stay dreaming
What I long to keep
Just keeps on running

With hands held high,
Your hair runs wild.
You find your freedom where I can't tread
You find your comfort in another's bed.

With hands held high,
Your hair runs wild.
You find your freedom where I can't tread
You find your comfort in another's bed.

But I'm learning now
The science of sleeping alone.
Oh, I'm learning now,
The science of sleeping
