When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The waking up is the hardest part

You roll out of bed and down on your knees
And for a moment you can hardly breathe
Wondering was she really here
Is she standing in my room?

No, she's not
'Cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The giving up is the hardest part

She takes you in with her crying eyes
Then all at once you have to say goodbye
Wondering, could you stay, my love?
Will you wake up by my side?

No, she can't
'Cause she's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

Now do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my hand?
Do I have to fall asleep with roses in my, roses in my hands?
Would you get them if I did?

No, you won't
'Cause you're gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

When you're dreaming with a broken heart,
The waking up is the hardest part.
