Softer Than Sleep

from Tuesday Song by Color Theory



Sometimes I seem to fill up my heart
With words my lips will not surrender
If I should ever seem to forget
I want you to know that I remember
When you drove me home from work at midnight
Kissing me at every stoplight
Like when we were new
Like true love is true

And you touch me softer than sleep
I can feel it ringing inside of me
And it colors all that I do
With a touch of you

I used to think that love was a lie
But God I wished that there was someone
While other stars fell out of the sky
You were always there on the horizon
When I heard you singing in the shower
Butchering the song I wrote you
All at once I knew
How my wish came true

I lay awake sometimes
Ready to burst inside
Killing the dead of night
Hoping to find another strand of hair you left behind and
When we shared a pillow on the terrace
Counting all the lights in Vegas
Time was torn in two
Like a deja vu

With a touch of you
Just a touch of you
Not enough of you
