Only when you sleep
Baby it's just a dream that's keeping you awake
It's just a dream that's making you shake
It's just a dream and soon it'll be gone
You think you control it
What you don't really know is
That it's controlling you
The fear of leaving and the nightmare of sleeping
Not all your dreams come true
It's only when you sleep when you sleep it all goes wrong
In a moment of weakness
You try to resolve this feeling you can't explain
Then you notice it's not what you wanted
You're driving yourself insane
It's only when you sleep when you sleep it all goes wrong
It's only when you sleep it's only when you sleep
I could hold you I could save you yeah I could keep you from harm
Cause she sleeps in a bad dream
And she wakes in a movie scene next to one who cares
It's only when you sleep only when you sleep it all goes wrong
Cause she thinks she controls it she thinks she knows it
It's just a dream just a lonely dream and then you wake
