As I wake up in a room somewhere
There's just a thin horizon between me and her

Strange how the sheets are warm beside me.
As it slips to the far and wide of me.
Didn't I try to hold it down?
Hang sharp on the sound.

Are still here for the taking.
And the empty dawn is breaking.
Didn't I try to hold it down?
Hang sharp on the sound.

What button do I press for re-run?
The edge of a dream about someone.
Well, you know, I felt her
Now the sheets are cold beside me.
