lyrics

I've been awake for hours,
or maybe it's been days.
Running hot, I'm drifting.
See the moke clouds in my wake.

I need a heart attack,
to rest this weary mind.
I need a chain reaction:
something that might bind me

We cannot stop these feelings,
they've been with us since birth
Each generation's question:
how do we measure worth?

We used our skin as canvas,
to mark the passing time.
We learned to read the stars,
for the trouble close behind.

That's why I ask you to

Sing
Sing me to sleep
When the dawn breaks
I want to be deep

Sing
Sing me to sleep
If the bough breaks
What can we keep

There was a moment, fleeting
when I first learned your name.
I may have known the sunrise,
but I never knew the flame.

You were the heart attack
that arrived just on time,
to start the chain reaction
when you put your hand in mine.

That's why I ask you to

Sing
Sing me to sleep
When the dawn breaks
I want to be deep

Sing
Sing me to sleep
If the bough breaks
What can we keep
