The night is still
The wind is chilled
I hear the rain falling
On my window pane

Can't close my eyes
Afraid to sleep
'Cause when I do
I would only dream of you

I'm trying to forget
That we ever met
But how can I forget
And dream of you?

Afraid to sleep
Because I'd dream of you
Afraid to sleep
Because I'd wake up feeling blue

If I stay awake forever
We'd never be together
So I'll close my eyes
And go ahead and dream

Sweet dreams
Sweet dreams
Sweet dreams
...
