Picture



You've just left. "I don't like seeing you like this," you said.
Neither do I.

could you hold me sometime
like tonight
and let me rest there
let me stay there for a thousand days
and you'll wipe away all the tears that roll down my face

if i could only forget
if i could only let go of the memories of you in my life
in my arms
sleeping beside me
and the sleeping dreams in your smile
all the plans that i had for us

you haunt me

could you hold me sometime
like tonight
and let me rest there
let me stay there for a thousand days
asleep beside your dreams
