We're a long long way from home
I found the place to rest you down
Drifting in the shallows
You love the stars but I
Must pay attention to the ground
Diving deeper below

And I tried, and I tried holding on
Parts of me I fear to lose once you're gone
Sleep away, sleep away sweet dreams
Let me kill you to find the real thing

Reflecting over the water
Cutting myself on the reef
You keep me above on a leash
My gills are getting tired
I have some trouble to breath
Our love doesn't belong underneath

And I tried, and I tried holding on
Parts of me I fear to lose once you're gone
Sleep away, sleep away sweet dreams
Let me kill you to find the real thing

I can feel you thrash around
My favorite part of me
Drowning as I push you down
Fading to reality
Surface Breaking, this mirror's cruel
Using the shards to make you bleed
Screaming like an infant would
I'm scaring easily

And I tried, and I tried holding on
Parts of me I fear to lose once you're gone
Sleep away, sleep away sweet dreams
Let me kill you to find the real thing
