about

A woman has been unfaithful to her husband and it's eating her up inside. She wants to tell him, but is terrified of losing him. So she tells him when he's sleeping. She feels better, and reminds him, he's only dreaming.

lyrics

I can't tell you what happened that day.
Darling, no not when you're awake.
So I'll stay up late at night watching you sleeping.
No, I can't tell you what happened that day.
You might run away darling.
So I'll stay up late at night watching you sleeping.
And when your dreaming, I'll whisper my mistake.

I've been living my life.
Wishing this wrong away.
Hey, I know what you're thinking, I must have been drinking, to act this way.
O.K.
I needed some attention.
Something I just couldn't get from you.
You were so far away, and I wanted to play.
I was lonely ...
Waiting for you.

Baby I've been bad.
But right now I'm so- good.
I don't want to tell you this, but I think I should.

I can't tell you what happened that day.
Darling no not when you're awake.
So I'll stay up late at night watching you sleeping.
No, I can't tell you what happened that day.
You might run away darling.
So I'll stay up late at night watching you sleeping.
When your dreaming ...
I'll whisper my mistake.

Baby I've been bad.
But right now I'm so- good.
I don't want to lose you ...
and I think I could.

I don't want you to run away.
I don't want you to run.
No longer lying, I'm done denying.
Please forgive me, so I can let it go.
I know, running away will never make me free.
I regret it, can't forget it, baby believe me.
It's monday morning, five a.m.
and you're smiling, I think you might understand.

Baby I've been bad.
But right now I'm so- good.
I don't want tell you this, but I think I should.
I know I've been bad ... baby.
But right now, I'm so- good.
I don't want to lose you, and I think I could.

I can't tell you what happened that day.
Darling, no not when you're awake.
So I'll stay up late at night, watching you sleeping.
No, I can't tell you what happened that day.
You might run away darling.
So, I'll stay up late at night watching you sleeping.
And when you're dreaming, I'll whisper my mistake ...
And when you're dreaming, I'll whisper my mistake ...
And when you're dreaming ...
sleeping ...
dreaming ...
sleeping ...
dreaming ...
