I sit here in this chair and watch you sleeping.
I wonder what it is that you are dreaming.
Is there a chance it might be me,
You’re seeing in your dreams?
Then I stumble through the dark into the kitchen.
Then quietly I find that I am wishing
That somehow I could be
The man you’re seeing in your dreams.
I’d be a knight in shining armor,
A hero come to call.
I’d be the one who catches you
Every time you fall.
I’d be the one with all the answers
You need to set you free,
But in reality, I’m just me.
When I go back to our room, I’m just a shadow
As I watch the moon shine on you through the window,
And then I get down on my knees
And pray you’ll see me in your dreams.
