I’m gonna rest my weary head now
and close my ready eyes
and fight through all the shit that lies inside
and find an image of you and focus in on tight
‘til you become so bright
that light turns into dark
and my whole self turns into sleep
and I dream of only you

As if it were that easy to turn off my mind
would be like stamping cigarettes on my arm
without being burned
I’ve learned to let it take me
as it often takes you
hoping that things will run their course, somehow
Well, if forcing things had ever worked
I would surely know by now

Suppose you’ve never seen the sun rise
You’ve never seen the sea
You’ve never woken up right here
holding on to me
What if I’ve never seen your face
I’ve never seen a thing
I never knew the simple joy
making you smile could bring

And I’ve dreamt of this
I’ve dreamt of nothingness
A picture of white
A field of emptiness

Moving far away from being surprised all the time
Now I can feel wisdom taking shape if I try
It helps being continually awake
Nothing gets past my eyes

Suppose you’ve never seen the sun rise
You’ve never seen the sea
You’ve never woken up right here
holding on to me
What if I’ve never seen your face
I’ve never seen a thing
I never knew the simple joy
making you smile could bring

And I’ve dreamt of this
I’ve dreamt of nothingness
A picture of white
A field of emptiness
