Waking Up Beside You

August 20, 2010

This is one of my favorites from the band, Stabbing Westward. It’s “love angst” at it’s best. Enjoy! :-)

I’ve been so alone for so long
Forgotten by the world
Forgotten to myself
Your effervescent eyes have awakened me
And brushed the dust away
But I knew you’d never stay

So I memorized the color of your eyes as I lost myself inside you
And I memorized the way our legs entwined as I drifted off beside you

I miss
God I miss
Waking up beside you

At night I cling to you, I’m so afraid
Afraid the day will come
And I’ll wake and find you gone
But you promised that you’d not abandon me
And kissed my fears away
But I woke up to that day

But I had memorized the way our eyes would meet,
Reflected in the bathroom mirror
And I memorized your naked silhouette as you slowly brushed your hair
I miss
God I miss
Waking up beside you

I’ve been so alone for so long
I forgot how much it hurts
To wake up so alone

But I memorized how warm your body felt
As you lay half asleep beside me
And I memorized the way the sunlight
Filled the room and played upon your body

I miss
God I miss
Waking up beside you
I miss
God I miss
Waking up beside you
