Carried Through the Night

I don’t want to sleep
You told me I was safe,
That, I already knew
So what's the problem,
I'm afraid you wouldn't be there
When I awoke

You could just as easily disappear
As quickly as you came

As my eyes slide closed
I squeeze my arms around you tighter,
As if that would keep you here

I feel myself slipping into slumber
So now all I can do is dream,
Dream that you stay

They seem to last forever
But when I finally awaken
I'm terrified to open my eyes
But I realize I'm still keeping hold
Of my love
