Sandra Palmer

Wide Awake
Every night I'm kissing you in my dreams
don't need a doctor to know what that means
so bad don't wanna go to sleep
Tortured by the promises I can't keep

Sometimes I'm so weak
I forget that I'm strong
And when I remember
I know that it's wrong
Sometimes the shame
Is too much to take
While everyone sleeps
I'm wide awake

Every night I'm thinkin about how it could be
You'd be right here lying next to me
I get hot - toss the covers away
These fantasies follow me all day

Why can't I just leave this alone
This torment is something I've never known

Tonight I know you're gonna be in my bed
I won't tell a soul what's going on in my head
I'll drink some wine for what good it might do
To fall asleep and make love with you
Short Song Description:
Desire plus guilt equals no sleep.
Long Song Description:
Two equally strong emotions, desire and guilt, cause a lot of turmoil, particularly at night.
Story Behind the Song:
No story really; just the two emotions most likely to make you find yourself wide awake in the middle of the night.
