my lyricsbox
You're only just a dreamboat sailing in my head
You swim my secret oceans of coral blue and red
Your smell is incense burning
Your touch is silk and yet it reaches through my skin
And moving from within it clutches at my breast

But it's only when I sleep
(Only when I sleep)
See you in my dreams
You got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down

But I only hear you breathe
(I 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 shadows disappear
Your breath is just a sea mist surrounding my body
I'm working through the day time 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
(Only when I sleep)
See you in my dreams
(Dreams)
You got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down

But I only hear you breathe
(I hear you breathe)
Somewhere in my sleep
(In my sleep)
Got me spinning round and round
Turning upside down but it's only when I sleep

Yeah
Yeah

Yeah
Yeah

It's only when I sleep

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

It reaches through my skin
And moving from within it clutches at my breast

But it's only when I sleep
(Only when I sleep)
See you in my dreams
(Dreams)
You got me spinning round and round
(Spinning around)
Turning upside down

But I only hear you breathe
(I 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)
