While you were sleeping…. I crept into your room
I sat in the corner…. by the light of the moon

while you were sleeping the night caught on fire
the cities all crumbled from the weight of desire
I can hear you breathing, see the shadows on the wall
Well, while you were sleeping the world turned away
Put its back to the sun, dis-membered the day
If I try really hard , It’s like I’m not here at all.

Don’t ask even once why I’m sitting here
Or why the light on your face makes me shed a tear
I know you don’t talk much… I don’t expect that you do
But there’s so much left unsaid… between me and you

Well, while you are sleeping I can count my regrets
Watched the moon turn black and the stars pirouette
While you were sleeping I kissed you goodnight
Went into my room and turned out the light.
