Rivermaya – Sleep lyrics

Tonight's the first night
You're no longer in my arms
A little colder
Nothing but the darkness and the stars

My hand wanders through
The space where you used to be
I really wish that you'd
Still come home to me

Until then I'll sleep
Sleep.

Remember yesterday
When your smile filled every room
Imagined forever with you
Now you're gone too soon

I can feel you calling
There's no place that I'd rather be
Just here with you, sleeping
If only in my mind

Until then I'll sleep
Sleep.

I can feel you calling
There's no place that I'd rather be
Just here with you, sleeping
If only in my mind

Until then I'll sleep
Sleep.

    I play it on my phone everyday, while at it reminds me of my first love comes with photographic memory goes on and on flashing-back-stabbing-bittersweet-heartbreaking melancholy on my mind until the line "just here with you sleeping" thus says/implying that even though we won't make love and/or any of the sweet story telling and stuffs but just here sleeping peacefully next to me and spoiling me to always have someone lie beside me suffice the need for comfort and love. The sad thing is that the guy with this song is still hoping, dreaming of that one day they will be together someday, at least until then just sleep.

    A song about a man missing his ex-Gf on the very first day after their break up. And if only sleep is the only answer to go back to those happy moments they have, until she comes home(figuratively), she'll wake up from his dreams to reality.
    A simple song, a sign of a good gentleman. Making decisions that would not affect the other half. Holding to himself his own suffering. Rivermaya. Good job.
