Awake

Something kept me awake last night
Underneath the stillness of the moonlit sky
I felt the weight of the morning light, 
As it pierced through the blind and it caught my eye


I’ll never make this on my own,
I’ll never make this on my own



Every time that I make this bed
I lie awake in it thinking of what you said
It races round in my weary head
If it would find it’s way down to my heart instead

I’ll never make this on my own,
I’ll never make this on my own,

I’m waiting, I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting, I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting, I’m waiting for 
You know the one thing that I need to do

There are answers I’ve found before
And there are problems I leave at the bedroom door
But I don’t think I could take much more
Of these whispers that creak through the broken floor

I’ll never make this on my own
I’ll never make this on my own


I’m waiting, I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting, I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting, I’m waiting for 
You know the one thing that I need to do

You walk into the room
I can hardly move
You whisper in my ear
Speaking to the fear

Oh my heart stops steady in it’s tracks 
When you tell me that
There’s nothing I can do to lose your love
There’s nothing I could say to make you walk away
