Could you watch me as I fall asleep?
Under the sleeping sun.
Its like I can never
from a bad dream.
Its an everyday combat.
Where I cannot see so clear
your reflection in the mirror.
Out of my grasp,
but just around the corner.
You're the one that I want.
I would promise you
if i thought you believed in it.
Please lean on me.
I'll be your strength,
I'll be forever thankful,
i like the straightforwardness of this..
careful of "it's" the contraction it is takes an apostrophe...
almost a thought as to "could you let me just dream?"
or would you try to save me, or change me..or jump into the dream with me?
there is a sense of the speaker saying..
"i need you" but not being able to do that and twisting it around to "Lean on me"
next to the last stanza reminds me of Sheryl Crow's "strong enough"
"lie to me, i'll believe it"
like i need someone so bad it doesn't matter if you are true or not..just pretend so i have someone to be with...to hang onto..
lots of vision here...like hemmingway..seems simpler on the surface than it really is...
