    Sometimes when I'm lying down in my bed
    And the lights are out
    I close my eyes and picture you close
    Wondering....
    How do you sleep? Do you snore?
    Looking at the empty pillow to my right
    I envision a face looking back at me, staring into my eyes
    And I'd smile and tell you how beautiful you are
    But I end up sleeping alone...

    Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night
    I wish you were the reason my eyes won't close
    I lay on my back, picturing you leaning over me
    Kissing me, to wake me up
    Or maybe, you get up to use to restroom
    And all the comotion disturbs my sleep
    Then I'd ask "what's wrong?" And you'd smile and say "nothing"
    But I end up going back to sleep alone...

    Sometimes when I wake up in the morning
    I wish that you were next to me sleeping silently
    And I just stare at you, thinking to myself
    Gently caress your cheak, pull your hair out of your face
    Then I'd get up to make you breakfast, even though I can't burn
    Wake you up to the smell of pancakes and strawberries
    But I only end up waking up to silence and an empty bed....

    Sometimes when I'm going through the day
    I just stop and close my eyes
    And picture you calling me to come home because you have a surprise for me
    As soon as I open the door, you greet me with nothing on and a kiss
    We move from the door, to the living room, to the bedroom
    BUT... I only end up waking up from my day dreams...

    Then I end up with another night and dream...

    This really touches my heart. How you can do that and keep it flowing so well and so tight is beyond me.
