"When You Sleep" as written by and Mary Danielle Lambert....
One foot in front of the other
Keep breathing just like they taught you
You politely asked to take a walk with me
I would've married you there underneath the trees
Is it real, this thing?
Is it real, ooh, this thing?

I could make you happy
I could make you love me
I could disappear completely
I could be your love song
I could be long gone
I could be a ghost in your eardrum
When you sleep, will it be with me?
When you sleep, will it be with me?

I swore I saw you in a dream
All dressed in white and wide smile
You politely asked to take a walk with me
And I married you there underneath the trees
Can you feel the beat of my heartbeat beating through me?
Can you feel the beat of my heartbeat beating through?

I could make you happy
I could make you love me
I could disappear completely
I could be your love song
I could be long gone
I could be a ghost in your eardrum
When you sleep, will it be with me?
When you sleep, will it be with me?

How did I miss you, when I didn't know you? (Ooh)
How did I miss you, when I didn't know you? (Ooh)
How did I miss you, when I didn't know you? (Ooh)
How did I miss you, when I didn't know you? (Ooh)

I could make you happy
I could make you love me
I could disappear completely
I could be your love song
I could be long gone
I could be a ghost in your eardrum
I could make you happy
I could make you love me
I could disappear completely
Be with me when you sleep
Be with me

    Song MeaningThis song mainly portrays what runs trough a persons mind. Most of which is insecurity. Mainly because he/she loves someone and doesn't know how the other person fells about it.
