(I see them in this sound)
We're the long drives and talks of hopes and fears
And the warm quiet we've sat with all these years
And we've also felt like nothing at all
It doesn't stop us, though, we know all we need to know
Flash back to a recent dream where you were face to face
With how you feel and you were holding your life in your hands

You laughed and felt so strong and so permanent
Thought you could not go on but somehow you did
And I wish that everyone could've seen your eyes
I bet they've never shined so bright
But more than anything else, I wish you could see them in this sound

We've been making all these years
And the best part is still the feeling
That I get from knowing that I do this with you through
All the times I was sure we were through

We laughed and felt so strong and so permanent
Thought we could not go on, but somehow we did
And I wish that everyone could've seen our eyes
I bet they've never shined so bright
But more than anything else
I wish that you could see them in this sound

And I had a dream that had awoken my purpose
Jets dropped bombs, missiles sent to destroy us
And I was at home with my whole family
And we watched as the streets filled with smoke
And the TV had spoken of death and confusion
And what we should do for the bombs they were using
As I watched a dark wave coming fast towards our window
All I could speak of was love
I wish that you could see them in this sound

    General Commentthis band is incredible live, especially when playing "sleepless". this song is amazing; you can feel the passion in every lyric. i think it's about feeling alive, defying the pain and numbness of the past in order to go on and find a purpose in life with the people who are important to you.
