I dream of us together, forever,
but I guess I have to wait till I wake.
Till then, these dreams will hold me over.
Every second that I am awake,
the longer I have to wait.
Together with you, I am complete.
Insomnia is like a wicked dream,
so I can’t wait till I get to sleep.
Then I can see you till morning come.
Eight hours till I wake and hear your voice.
I close my eyes so I can see yours,
just one more time.
You’re more than just in my mind.
The dream I never want to wake from—
Except to finally see you for one.
The sooner I go to sleep,
the sooner I get to see you.
Then the sooner I get to wake,
before I finally see you for real.
