Lori McKenna – Instead lyrics

Well I can hear you whisper as you're holding your breath
I can crawl deep inside of you and bring out what is left
Now I need to be grounded, how you need to see the sky
You have the wings to master and have the soul to fly

What does love mean to you
While I'm miles away
My lips seem to be moving
But you can't hear a word I say

How can our lives be so different
When we sleep in the same bed
Well I know your life's a burden
Won't you dream with me instead

Well things are never perfect
But oh how hard you try
You need to have a purpose
You need to ask why

Your senses see so differently than mine
Or so it seems
Your heart asks the questions
My heart just dreams

What does love mean to you
While I'm miles away
My lips seem to be moving
But I don't know what to say

How can our lives be so different
When we sleep in the same bed
Well I know your life's a burden
Won't you dream with me instead

Well go ahead and lay your head on my pillow dear
Say goodbye to all your fears
And rest assured there'll be no tears
Right here
Here
Here

What does love mean to you
While I'm miles away
My lips seem to be moving
But you can't hear a word I say

How can our lives be so different
When we sleep in the same bed
Well I know your life's a burden
Won't you dream with me instead?
Won't you dream with me instead?
