[Verse 1: Frank Ocean]
The love glows I know how love glows
Oh I know that love glows i know that love glows yeah
If we colored our white walls pitch black
Turn all the lights off and lay back
We can make love with our bare hands
We can make light out of thin air
Or we can close our eyes and sleep well
But Dreams feel realer then right now
But whatever you do don't let go
My only nightmare is waking up alone in a world where your not mine
In a room painted off white
Running out in the daylight, tryna get back to you
When I stare into your eyes, I see my real life
That's why I never sleep with my back to you
[Hook]
When I lay down, facing you
I can feel my eyelids glow (I never sleep with my back to you)
And if the sun rises, (back to you) behind you
I don't think I'd notice, no
I never sleep with my back to you, back to you
I never sleep with my back to you, back to you, back to you
[Verse 2: Frank Ocean]
Laying under the covers that I stole
From your side of bed cause I got cold
You rolled over and whispered rob-robbery
So you been sleeping with a thief in your bed
Stole your heart, and your pillows
Whatever you do just don't go
Baby the worse jail is waking up alone in a world where your not mine
In a room painted off white
Running out in the daylight, tryna get back to you
When I'm looking in your eyes, I see my real life
So I never sleep with my back to you
[Hook]
When I lay down, facing you
I can feel my eyelids glow (I never sleep with my back to you)
And if the sun rises (back to you) behind you
I don't think I'd notice, no (I never sleep with my back to you)
[Bridge]
Like a nightlight, like a Teddy bear
Like a toddlers blanket
Look at us baby, two grownups acting like children
[Hook]
When I lay down, facing you
I can feel my eyelids glow (I never sleep with my back to you)
And if the sun rises, (back to you) behind you
I don't think I'd notice though (I never sleep with my back to you, back to you)
When I lay down, facing you
I can feel my eyelids glow (I never sleep with my back to you)
And if the sun rises, (back to you) behind you
I don't think I'd notice, no (I never sleep with my back to you, back to you)
