My Slumbering Heart lyrics

In my dreams, i see myself hitting a baseball
In a green field somewhere near a freeway
I'm all tan and smiling and running from third base
It's hot and the kids keep on playing the driving game
And they're singing the same goddamn refrain
And the sky is a bluish gray

It's become just like a chemical stress
Tracing the lines in my face for
Something more beautiful than is there
I've barely been gone

In my dreams, i see you at the foot of some mountains
And we're taking some pictures or something
And we'd better hurry up
It's late and the sun keeps shooting through pine trees
And the grass stains are wet on your new jeans
And we'd better hurry up

I've become just like a terrible mess
Searching the lines in my face for
Something more beautiful than is there
But the crowds keep me coming back
Cheering

In my dreams, i see you asleep in a twin bed
The covers pulled up over your head
Am i asleep or awake?
It's morning and the captain is playing the radio
And he's just put the paint on his new boat
Am i asleep or awake?

It just feels good when we're waking up
It just feels good when you're next to me
It just feels good when you're coming home
It just feels good when it's waking up
My slumbering heart

It's become just like a chemical stress
Tracing the lines in my face for
Something more beautiful than is there
I've barely been gone
I'm not a failure i swear
I wish you could see it from over there
I've got a lot over here without you
I've barely been gone
Dreaming
