My Leg is Asleep

can I ask you a favour 
won’t you stay awake 
and whisper me a prayer 
in the dark I’m lonely 
but when you take my hand 
I start breathing slowly 

My leg is asleep 
but my head’s awake 
my mind’s been wandering 
to another place 

Maybe it’s my ability to dream 
that creates the nightmares 
maybe it what I have seen 
that I can not share 

Why can’t I speak, girl 
when I got something on my mind 
I can’t find the socket for the light 
won’t you help me? 
what do I seek, girl 
why can’t I find peace inside 
I just want the pain to subside 
Won’t you help me?  

Break my heart crush my soul, girl 
it makes me feel alive 
that’s the only way I thrive, girl 
and then It goes away, girl 
there’s nothing more to hide 
no tears, no pain, girl

Maybe it’s my ability to dream 
that creates the nightmares 
maybe it what I have seen 
that I can not share 

Why can’t I speak, girl 
when I got something on my mind 
I can’t find the socket for the light 
won’t you help me? 
what do I seek, girl 
why can’t I find piece inside 
I just want the pain to subside 
won’t you help me?
