While They Slept Away

We always like to pretend we can get away, and we can in our thoughts.

There is a time when all is quiet

When the only sound is your breathing

And everyone’s in a slumber

A friend’s head on your shoulder, soft music in your ears

The stars will shine out above you stretching endlessly

A perfect song will play and you will never forget how you felt;

With the rhythm and the words

You’ll be sitting there in the silence, thinking

No one will know and no one will ever know

People look so innocent while asleep’ you’ll think

And they’ll dream of college

And you’ll be watching the stars

And they won’t ever know

What you thought

While they slept away


The End
