"Before I Start Dreaming" as written by and Christian Mcalhaney Stephen Christian Arnold....
Lonely empires fill the night's imagination.
A distant land, a foreign hand,
And I'm patient.
I tried to take you,
But you wouldn't wait and see.
I'll try to explain without words
What I hope to be.

Close your eyes, there's nothing here to see.
Don't lie here awake in thoughts you won't believe.
I'll wait till you're asleep before I, I start dreaming.
I'll find a future for us both, after you're sleeping.
These thoughts could keep you up all night,
I'm safe-keeping.
I'll wait till you're asleep before I, I start dreaming.

Do you ever wish we were more than who we are?
Or are you happy watching others from afar?
If you're not gonna stand by my side through this-
Then don't stand in the way and pretend you've missed...

Close your eyes, there's nothing here to see.
I'll find someone else to listen to my dreams.
I'll wait till you're asleep before I, I start dreaming.
I'll find a future for us both, after you're sleeping.
These thoughts could keep you up all night,
I'm safe-keeping.
I'll wait till you're asleep before I start dreaming.
