I'm not asking you to leave
I'm just begging you to let me get some sleep
I've lied awake for far too long
I get so sick and tired of witnessing the dawn

As summer hangs on the horizon
Desire jumps the fence and hightails to the sea
A subtle tale turns into nightmares
Without the sentence structure
Nothing functions, no one has a clue
If it's me or if it's you
Was it me or was it you?

I'm not asking you to leave
I'm just begging you to let me get some sleep
I've lied awake for far too long
I get so sick and tired of witnessing the dawn

As winter strangles at the shoreline
Division locks the door and confiscates the key
All freezerburn and Arctic research
The time has passed for parting glances,
There's no romance, there's no sign
Of the things that used to be
And all those things you promised me

I'm not asking you to leave
I'm just begging you to let me get some sleep
I've lied awake for far too long
I get so sick and tired of witnessing the dawn

From nervous hands to nervous nightmares
I often wake and find...

We're not alone, just lonely all of the time
We're not alone, just lonely all of the time
We're not alone, just lonely all of the time
We're not alone, just lonely all of the time

I'm not asking you to leave
I'm just begging you to let me get some sleep
I've lied awake for far too long
I get so sick and tired of witnessing the dawn

I'm not asking you to leave
(I'm not asking you to leave)
I'm not asking you to leave
(I'm not asking you to leave)
I'm not asking you to leave
(I'm not asking you to leave)
I'm just begging you to let me get some sleep.
