Lyrics

Game Size

Lay here for a moment
Just before I go to sleep
And I can't stop the memories
All those old feelings run deep

I try to keep from thinking
About the day you said goodbye
But I can't seem to stop myself
It always makes me cry

And then I always seem
To have the same old dream
Where you're lying next to me
Just like you always used to be

And when I dream
Then I'm always making love to you
And when I dream
Oh it seems so real it must be true
And when I dream
I'll give you all the love I have to give
But when I dream
How am I supposed to try to live without you here

Long Version


Lay here for a moment
Just before I go to sleep
And I can't stop the memories
All those old feelings run deep

I try to keep from thinking
About the day you said goodbye
But I can't seem to stop myself
It always makes me cry

And then I always seem
To have the same old dreams
Where you're lying next to me
Just like you always used to be

And when I dream
Then I'm always making love to you
And when I dream
Oh it seems so real it must be true
And when I dream
I'll give you all the love I have to give
But when I dream
How am I supposed to try to live without you here

I wake up in the morning
And try to carry on somehow
But as I'm driving in to work
I wonder who's with you now

I try to do my job
But I can't seem to get nowhere
If I could only see your face
And let you know I still care...

And then I always seem
To have the same old dreams
Where you're lying next to me
Just like you always used to be

And when I dream
Then I'm always making love to you
And when I dream
Oh it seems so real it must be true
And when I dream
I'll give you all the love I have to give
But when I dream
How am I supposed to try to live without you here

Every thing is crystal clear and you know I need you near
To hold me all through the night until the morning
And if I just close my eyes somehow I won't be so surprised
If I can touch you, feel you, here with me
I gotta have you now. oh baby can't you see, I need your love.

And when I dream
Then I'm always making love to you
And when I dream
Oh it seems so real it must be true
And when I dream
I'll give you all the love I have to give
But when I dream
How am I supposed to try to live without you here
