"Only When I Sleep [Unplugged Version]" as written by Oliver J Leiber, Caroline Corr, Sharon Corr, James Corr, Andrea Corr, Paul Peterson and John Shanks....
You're only just a dream boat
Sailing in my head
You swim my secret oceans
Of coral blue and red
Your smell is incense burning
Your touch is silken yet
It reaches through my skin
Moving from within
And clutches at my breast

But it's only when I sleep
See you in my dreams
Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down
But I only hear you breathe
Somewhere in my sleep
Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down
But it's only when I sleep

And when I wake from slumber
Your shadow's disappeared
Your breath is just a sea mist
Surrounding my body
I'm working through the daytime
But when it's time to rest
I'm lying in my bed
Listening to my breath
Falling from the edge

But it's only when I sleep
See you in my dreams
Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down
But I only hear you breathe
Somewhere in my sleep
Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down
But it's only when I sleep

But it's only when I sleep

(Up to the sky)
(Where angles fly)
(I'll never die)
(Hawaiian high)

It's reaching through my skin
Moving from within
And clutches at my breast

But it's only when I sleep
See you in my dreams
Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down
But I only hear you breathe

(In bed I lie)
(No need to cry)
(My sleeping cry)
(Hawaiian high)

(Up to the sky)
(Where angles fly)
(I'll never die)
(Hawaiian high)
