Lying on my back staring at the ceiling fan
Regrets kicking me like an empty beer can
Sleep is busy sedating everyone else
And I'm replaying things I shouldn't have said

It scares me to death when we fight like we did
We get so small close tight as a lid
Each time we agree to climb over that wall
what if one morning you don't want to anymore

So I stay awake watch you drift
exhale the hurt away from all this
hope you believe me when I say I didn't mean it
reach over and kiss your lovely cheek

and the moon takes her bow and the sun comes up
the skin will be tender but we'll work it out
I don't wanna wake you but I wish you would
the sunrise is especially beautiful
