The Corrs

'Only when I sleep'

 

You're only just a dream boat who sailing in my head

You swin my secret oceans of coral blue and red

Your smell is incense burning

Your touch is silken yet

It reaches through my skin, moving from within

And clutches at my breast

 

But it's only when I sleep

See you in my dreams

Got me spinning round and round

Turning upside down

But I only hear you breathe

Somewhere in my sleep

Got me spinning round and round

Turning upside down

But it's only when I sleep

 

And when I wake from slumber, your shadow's disappeared

Your breath is just a sea mist surronding my body

I'm working through the daytime

But when it's time to rest, I'm lying in my bed

Listening to my breath, falling from the edge

 

But it's only when I sleep

See you in my dreams

Got me spinning round and round

Turning upside down

I hear you breathe

Somewhere in my sleep

Got me spinning round and round

Turning upside down

But it's only when I sleep

 

Only when I sleep

 

It reaches through my skin, moving from within

And clutches at my breast

 

But it's only when I sleep

See you in my dreams

Got me spinning round and round

Turning upside down

But I only hear you breathe

Somewhere in my sleep

Got me spinning round and round

Upside down

 

Up to the sky where angels fly

I'll never die

 

Only when I sleep
