I can't breathe a whisper,
Which is why this rooms so loud,
And I can't make my bed,
But I'm made to lie in it alone,
And maybe, you'll come here to visit,
And you can sit and watch me sleep,
And we can talk of what you will,
But I'll miss the point 'cause all I have are dreams,

I've been asleep with the lights on,
For days on end now,
And I should've listened to someone,
Who could see this happening.
Won't you mend my broken head?
If I wake up, will your face fill this room?

I can't make it out yet,
But your voice sounds sweeter than it ever did,
Did I just hear you leaving?
Or have I been alone a while?
Maybe you'll come here to visit,
And your luck just might be in,
But it would be false hope, if any,
And I would'nt want to waste your time.

I've been asleep with the lights on,
For days on end now,
And I should've listened to someone,
Who could see this happening,
Won't you mend my broken head?
If I wake up, will your face fill this room?
Woah

Ba-Ba-Oooooh (various times)

I've been asleep with the lights on,
For days on end now,
And I should've listened to someone,
Who could see this happening.
Won't you mend my broken head?
If I wake up, will your face fill this room?
Woahhhh.

And I've been, plugged into machines at the side of the bed,
Woke up from a dream could've sworn I was dead,
And how long has it been because I miss you to death?
A miracle or so they say (x6)
