I Heard You Crying in Your Sleep
I heard you crying in your sleep
But I was fast awake.
How long and lonely was that night
As my heart began to break,
And as I heard you weeping so
It was finally clear to see,
That I was more in love with you
Than you ever were with me.
But that's the way it is with love,
It's not a perfect thing--
And even the most lovely song
Can be difficult to sing.
What happened to my sweetheart?
She is no more fast asleep;
Chasing butterflies and rainbows,
She has no more need to weep.
