What am I without you?

Shaded and gray.
Silently aching.
Painting clouds
to keep the sun away
and making wishes
that will never come true.

What I needed
what I need
what I wanted
all I want
is you.

Drown me in smoke
to smother my tears
They won’t love you
like I love you.
They don’t need you
like I do.

You are the time inside my years.

I want to sleep
sleep
sleep
sleep…
and dream you as a dream.
