I left while you were sleeping
While Abraham shaped your side
Never loved you less, never loved you more
As when Sirius hung in the sky

A memory is a memory
And a dream is a liar
Was I a lamb dreaming I was a lamb?
Or am I asleep in the clover tonight?

While men are dreaming
They know it not a dream
Upon waking, we're fools again
What if we're sleeping?

A memory is a memory
And a dream is a liar
Was I meant to never see you again
Or am I dreaming asleep by your side?

    General CommentThis feels like a throwback to Rilo Kiley for some weird reason to me.

    Lyric CorrectionI think it should be, "I left while you were sleeping" instead of laughed. It makes more sense that way, like she was dreaming that she left him.

    General CommentDoes anybody else hear "Jenny, Jenny?" after the weird frog sound in the start of the song?
