I'm sleeping through the day again
With the light from your window making shapes of your face on the wall
And I don’t wish you were here
But I’m noticing with no defense a light that doesn’t go off
So give me time to reconcile my reality and the peace I can’t touch
Because while I’m sleeping my faith still never comes close enough

I’ve fought off the uncertainty in believing your love would return to me
I’m promised to a feeling thats as far away as the distance I should keep
And I wish I could hold on to something that lasts, but all I have is the day
And it will fade away
With the light you put out in the depth of your heart when you turned your back

So give me time
Because I need the sun to extinguish when I close my eyes
I need the clouds to remind me that love will always hide
I need the night to remind me love’s there, but on the opposite side of my life
Drowning in an ocean with its hands tied.
