So far away, from the place where I feel safe
I can't recall, the beauty in your face
The distance between us it sews it's dirty seed
Spreading inside of me with every breath I breathe
While you were sleepin I was wandering with the lonely people
While you were sleeping, tryin to fill the void you left
Life is short and the nights are long, and tonight
I moved on while you were sleepin.
A stranger for the night so I don't wake up alone(all alone)
To fake what we had, but it doesn't feel like home.
The distance between us, grows it's dirty seeds
Consuming my insides with every breath I breathe While you were sleepin, I was wandering with the lonely people
While you were sleepin, tryin to fill the void you left
Life is short and the nights are long, and tonight I moved on- while you were sleeping.
Don't look for me, don't wait for me, I found my path
(While you were sleepin)over sticks and stones, over broken bones I wont look back
(While you were sleepin)there's a place for you somewhere in my heart, but that's the past.
While you were sleepin I was wandering with the lonely people,
While you were sleepin, trying to fill the void you left
Life is short and the nights are long, and tonight I moved on- while you were sleeping.
