When I Fell Asleep

all the time has passed that led us here
next to one other night after night
and nothing has made me this happy in my entire life
like a child on their first ride I started off scared, but now
I never want this to end

when I fell asleep you sat on my minds corner waiting for it to get off work
eventually; you left because I had to stay longer,
with as low my mind was blowing, my heart was casually a casualty
you are the sweetest thing I ever have had

the snow had fallen for me, as I had fallen for you
so hard I shattered when I came to earth and realized this could work
and just as quickly you made me melt
my heart in your hands; nowhere else could have been safer

when I fell asleep, I only saw you
like a pleasant ghost, you were everywhere
and I never felt more of a man
my life turned to gold

the flowers bloomed freshly
and in bundles you would get them, and as they glanced back
you knew it was love

in phrases you would try to tear it down to find an underlying cause
and you asked me one of your ever so famous questions
why me?

without hesitation all I had to say was
because when I woke up, you were my dream come true
