I sit stroking your hair, my hears have gone
You look so peaceful sleeping
Don’t know what’s going on, I’m confused
Feeling apprehensive How will I know if it’s me that as hurt you?
You don’t like to touch me, you don’t like to talk
Can’t make it right if you won’t let me near you
Afraid of your silence, 3 am morning walks
And I know there is something wrong
`Cause you put Leonard Cohen onSleep, Sleep away
As you do I can cry my heart out
Have I let you down?
If I did, I’ll try to be more carefulHow do you think I will cope here without you?
My stomach’s in knots and I’m trembling with fright
I’m sorry that I’ve been so Goddamn dependent
Panic and fear – I’m a moth without lightAnd I know there is something wrong
When you put Leonard Cohen on
