...You're only just a dream boat, sailing in my head
You swim my secret oceans, of coral blue and red
Your smell is incense burning, your touch is silken yet
It reaches through my skin, moving from within
And it clutches at my breast...

But it's only when I sleep, see you in my dreams
Got me spinning round and round, turning upside down
But I only hear you breathe, somewhere in my sleep
Got me spinning round and round, turning upside down
But it's only when I sleep...

...And when I wake from slumber, your shadow's disappeared
You breath is just the sea mist, surrounding my body
I'm working 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...
