I love the ocean too
How it's painted green and blue
In my recurring dreams of you
Oh, wake me not
Oh, wake me not

We're better when we're fast asleep
When you rise me from my fragrant sheets
It's that innocence I want to keep
Oh, wake me not
Oh, wake me not

Find me sleeping on my feet
The most delightful man you'll ever meet
And there's nothing that compares to him
To your own sleepwalking man
You know I wanna be on your side
Part of me just wants to run and hide
People scare me more than pain, you know
Let's walk into the fray again

Will you grace me with your presence here?
In your room of dying light
Beyond the reach of everything
In the sanctuary of the night

I'd rather be a sleepwalking man
I want no power or command
Over people I'll never understand
Oh, wake me not
Oh, wake me not

Find me sleeping on my feet
The most delightful man you'll ever meet
And there's nothing that compares to him
To your own sleepwalking man
You know I wanna be on your side
Part of me just wants to run and hide
People scare me more than pain, you know
Let's walk into the fray again

    General Commenta frustrated man, living on his own, he has passed throught a lot of pain,struggle either physically or emotionally..He knows he is very strong and nothing can affect his attitude, he is as Pink Floyd said, comfortably numb..He has accustomedto his own routine where he feels safety,calmness and serenity

    General CommentI think he is very much afraid of real relationships; so he preferes to be on his own, alone. At the same time, he wishes love, friendship and human contact. He is divided between this opposite desires.

    General CommentI totally agree with you. I think we all can relate to that! I feel that he is indeed very isolated in his own mind, and maybe he really wants to have friendship, love etc. He wants to belong, but at the same time his inner world is so interesting, so alive, that sometimes he prefers his own company. A beautiful song, with wonderful lyrics.
