It's okay in the day
I'm staying busy
Tied up enough so I don't have to wonder where is he
Got so sick of crying 
So just lately 
When I catch myself, I do a one-eighty
I stay up, clean the house 
At least I'm not drinking 
Run around just so I don't have to think about thinking 
That silent sense of content 
That everyone gets
Just disappears 'soon as the sun sets

He's fierce in my dreams, seizing my guts
He floats me with dread  Soaked in soul
He swims in my eyes by the bed
Pour myself over him
Moon spilling in
And I wake up alone 

If I was my heart 
I'd rather be restless 
The second I stop, the sleep catches up
And I'm breathless 
'Cause this ache in my chest 
As my day is done now
The dark covers me, and I cannot run now
My blood running cold
I stand before him (before him, I)
It's all I can do to assure him (assure him)
When he comes to me
I drip for him tonight  Drowning in me, we bathe under blue light 

He's fierce in my dreams, seizing my guts
He floats me with dread  Soaked in soul
He swims in my eyes by the bed
Pour myself over him
Moon spilling in
And I wake up alone 
And I wake up alone 
And I wake up alone 
And I wake up alone
