Rebecca Lindsey – While You Were Sleeping lyrics

While you were sleeping
You looked so peaceful
I quietly kissed your cheek
Your steady breathing
Said you were dreaming
So I tiptoed out the door
While you were sleeping

I backed up the you-haul
Couldn’t quite get it all
Just the dishes and the kids
And the money that you hid
That you thought I’d never find
Quite as a church mouse
‘til I slammed the door on our house
To let you know that I was leaving
While you were sleeping

While you were sleeping I was needing
You to just wake up
And be a man
But your lying, drinking, cheating, breakin my heart ways
Was more than I could stand
But could I stand alone
There’s only one way to know

(Repeat chorus)

While you were sleeping I was driving
Further than I’d ever had before
And those babies in the back seat
Reminding me
Of what I’m driving for
I wish I could‘ve stayed
But you wouldn’t change
