Sometimes I wish I could fall asleep and not wake up
Just open my eyes and be in that new, old place with you.
And I wouldn’t feel so ill-made, so badly kempt,
I would not feel this faltering heart struggling to beat
All I would feel is the peace of knowing I was where I never should have left.
That soft heart that is you and me
I could seal that wound that separated us, and never rend it again.
All I can hope is that when I fall asleep and don’t wake up
I will be where I think I’m going.
