Baby it's just a dream that's keeping you awake
It's just a dream that's making you shake
It's just a dream and soon it'll be gone

You think you control it
What you don't really know is
That it's controlling you

The fear of leaving and the nightmare of sleeping
Not all your dreams come true

It's only when you sleep only when you sleep it all goes wrong

In a moment of weakness
You try to resolve this feeling you can't explain

Then you notice it's not what you wanted
You're driving yourself insane

It's only when you sleep only when you sleep it all goes wrong
It's only when you sleep it's only when you sleep

I could hold you I could save you yeah I could keep you from harm

'Cause she sleeps in a bad dream
And she wakes in a movie scene next to one who cares

It's only when you, it's only when you
It's only when you sleep only when you sleep it all goes wrong

'Cause she thinks she controls it she think she knows it

It's just a dream just a lonely dream just a lonely dream and then you awake
