I Can’t Close My Eyes

As I lie restless, I hear your soft breath,
I see you smile in dreams of love spring.
My surrender to watch you, a living death,
miss you, babe, I don’t wanna miss a thing!
Long lonely hours spent in silence with you,
I dare not let you go, I sit here weeping.
So afraid you’ll be gone when night is through,
I can’t close my eyes, I can’t be sleeping.
As you lay next to me, our senses combine,
do you feel me here as you are dreaming?
Your arms my refuge, as our lives entwine,
miss you, babe, I don’t wanna miss a thing!
I can’t close my eyes, I can’t be sleeping,
miss you, babe, I don’t wanna miss a thing!
