Sometimes I wake
dreams of you shake me from sleep
I lie in bed awake, no matter how late
I wake up alone, no one to rescue me
No matter how I was feeling before
an emptiness fills me
I cry when my heart can't hold itself anymore
when the dreams completely shatter me
I dream of happiness
I dream about when we were lost in love
and it's such a cruelty to wake up to loneliness
such a shot to my heart to realize you were something I was only dreaming of
day after day, night after night
I dream of only you and I wonder how I will ever win this fight
