Life In Song: Even When I’m Sleeping

Life In Song:

Even When I’m Sleeping

As Mark drove into the early morning sunrise Steph lay awake in bed tossing and turning.

She’d slept reasonably for a few hours but the second she woke she quickly found herself lost in thought. Thoughts about her and Mark. Thoughts about how much she wanted be with him and thoughts about how much he wanted to be with her. But the overriding thought was why she kept putting up so many road blocks to stop what they both wanted. It was driving her crazy.

Don’t be confused by my apparent lack of ceremony,
My mind is clear

My mind is clear when I’m laying here unable to sleep.
So why is it not so clear when we are together?

I may be low or miles high off in the distance,
I want you near

Until you are and then my stupid mind says different.


I love you, even when I’m sleeping
When I close my eyes,you’re everywhere.

I love you more when we are sleeping side by side
And when you’re not here and I close my eyes all I can see if you

And if they take me flying on the magic carpet,
See me wave
If our communication fails I’ll reconnect it,
I want to rave

Although I really don’t want to ride on any magic carpet.
And I don’t really want to rave but we never used to have a problem communicating.
It’s only since my mind started fighting with my heart that the communication has failed.

I love you, even when I’m sleeping
When I close my eyes, you’re everywhere

Dammit even when my eyes are open you are always there.
The problem is that it’s only in my head because most of our waking hours we are spent apart
I know you’ve promised to fix that, but is it even possible?
We need to be careful, we can’t risk more than we’ve already let fail by Mark not being able to get a job and only quitting his well paid job because my brain wants to keep fighting my heart.


No matter where the road is leading us remember, don’t be afraid
We have a continent that sometimes comes between us, that’s ok

Of course it’s ok……until you get home and I make some stupid fight, or get upset by something minor and we end up not talking. Then I go to work, you go to sleep and nothing ever gets resolved.

I love you, even when I’m sleeping
When I close my eyes, you’re everywhere

And dammit I am nowhere!
I need to find myself before I lose myself.


  1. I can tell you what I love…this song…you are all awesome! This song is appealing on so many levels, not least of which is the beautiful voice and sensitive lyrics….just so very, very lovely….the kind of song that would lighten a dark, rainy night (in the literal, as well as metaphoric sense)…thank you for sharing you giftedness 🙂
