Sleep with Me


The clock stops

No tick-tock

Every time

 

Every time

 

You sleep with me

 

Come back, come back

And sleep with me

Turn the past inside out

Make it shudder and make it shout

 

No warning shots

No clanging bells

Just you and me

Outside our shells

 

The days are short and the nights are long

A lonely, mournful train-wreck song

 

The clickety-clack on the one-way tracks

Silenced up and down your arms

Every time

 

Every time

 

You sleep with me.
