You're only just a dreamboat
Sailin' in my head
You swim my secret oceans
Of coral blue and red
Your smell is incense burning
Your touch is silken yet
And reaches through my skin
And moving from within
It clutches at my breast

But it's only when I sleep
See you in my dreams
You got me spinnin' 'round and 'round
Turnin' upside-down
But I only hear you breathe
Somewhere in my sleep
Got me spinnin' 'round and 'round
Turnin' upside-down
But its only when I sleep

And when I wake from slumber
Your shadow's disappear
Your breath is just a sea mist
Surrounding my body
I'm workin' 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
You got me spinning 'round and 'round
Turnin' upside-down
But I only hear you breathe
Somewhere in my sleep
You got me spinning 'round and 'round
Turnin' upside-down
But its only when I sleep
It's only when I sleep

Up to the sky where angels fly
I'll never die, Hawaiian high
It's reaching through my skin
Movin' from within
Clutches at my breasts

But it's only when I sleep
See you in my dreams
You got me spinning 'round and 'round
Turnin' upside-down
But I only hear you breathe

In bed I lie, no need to cry
My sleeping cry, Hawaiian high

But it's only when I sleep
Got me spinning 'round and 'round
Turnin' upside-down

Up to the sky, where angels fly
I'll never die, Hawaiian high

But it's only when I sleep
Got me spinning 'round and 'round
Turnin' upside-down
