ANGELS WATCHING OVER YOU
how do you sleep that’s all i ask
in the nude or in the past?
are there angels watching over you?
in your head or in your bed
or in the words that don’t get said
sometimes do i disappear from view?
lately i’ve been feeling sad
these crazy dreams are all i’ve had
it’s keeping me up at night with the ghost of me and you
the streetlights watched me pack your bags
you’re not coming home the car lights flash
across the walls on to the dark side of the room
we get trapped beneath our fears drowning in our seas
but as bad as it gets down here
there’s no place i’d rather be
when you sleep do you dream?
nothing’s as real as what it seems
it brings confusion but that’s nothing new
silent glances, shuffled feet
misconceptions make ends meet
stretch you wings, lover, you have nothing left to lose.
