I wonder if you sleep right now 
Do you realize I'm clinging to 
The edge of this bed I have 
Nowhere to go, I have nowhere 

If I leave, you'll call me quitter 
If I stay, you'll punish me with silence and somehow 
You'll fall asleep... You'll fall asleep 

[Chorus:]
Well do you know that I won't sleep, 
No I won't sleep all night long 
As your silhouette turns its back on my spoon 
I'm mesmerized by the ricochet moon 
Leaping this leprechaun's (Rumplestiltskin's) wall 

I'm so disenchanting 
Intoxicated by my own tear's soul 
And come tomorrow 
When my beauty is old 
Like a speckled princess 
I'll try to cash in clovers for gold 
So I'll light a candle and begin to 
Write, turn to my work as refuge 

Though my womb is a rush hour taxi 
Ride, but I will try 
To metamorphose pain along my plight 
But I'll despise each word I write 
So I am clinging to the 
Edge, like some soap-opera star 
With her ten second fade 
As the light cascades 
Do you love me anymore? 

[Chorus]
 
I'll try to spin straw into gold 
Straw into gold... Straw into gold... Straw into gold 
Spinning for mercy 
Spinning for hope 
Spinning for love 
Spinning for gold
