I’m just too weak,
Will you carry me to bed?
Could you sing me to sleep,
And I’ll be right back with you in my dreams.
We can run away,
Won’t you steal me away?
We can make our perfect life:
Late night drives, wind in our hair.
We just couldn’t help ourselves,
Singling lines from all our favorite songs.

But something’s always missing,
And then we start to fall.
With a sudden jolting pain,
My dream just fades away

My heart begins to ache,
Another long and boring day.
Just when it gets too cold,
I can feel your burning fire.
But I don’t want relief,
I want content: my eternal flame.

So I crawl back to bed,
And dream perfection up.
But something’s always missing,
I can never feel your touch.
Suddenly, we start to fall again,
And my dream just fades away.

What’s wrong with my dreaming?
Why can’t I feel your touch?
This dream is but a memory,
Of last time I felt your touch.
How could I not see?
In my dreams, you aren’t next to me.

I used to think reality, was clouding up my dreams,
But not everything is as it seems.
Perfect, that’s how we could be.
But what’s reality, without you next to me?

My girlfriend.
She's absolutely amazing, and she is the complete inspiration.
She's fantastic in all ways.
I could write about her all day :)
