A Sleepy Love
And I wonder when you look back at me what you see
When I’m sitting there smiling
Thinking how the fuck is he even a relative possibility?
Can he hear my rapid heartbeats or is that just me?
While I look at you I pray to Gods I don’t even believe in to be the woman of your dreams
Exhausted from praying I fall to my knees
I drift off into a deep sleep waiting for you to come find me
Falling asleep is like falling in love
One minute you’re here and the next you’re gone
Stage one here we come…
Vivid sensations crash over my body when you touch me
Remind myself this is only stage one no falling…
Stage two my temperature’s dropping, heart rate is slowing down
You’re getting closer to finding me just following my sounds
Stage three a shallow like turns to a deep love
Our brain waves finally sync up
This is where two become one
Stage four I’m sleep walking right into your arms.
Home is where you feel safest after all during the storms
Stage five R.E.M.
Boy, I’m losing my religion
No rapid eye movement, I’m only staring at you
Everything ceases to exist when you’re in the room
Involuntarily my heart skips a beat
That crooked smile of yours brings me to my knees
And here I go again drifting off into a deep sleep waiting for you to come find me
