Don't Talk In Your Sleep

about

A "Guitar/Vocal" version. This track will be re-recorded before it is added to the finished version of "The Poison And The Cure" album.

Written with the wonderful Carmen M. Taylor. I think this was one of our first songs together.

lyrics

DON’T TALK IN YOUR SLEEP

Come on in
Pull the door
Leave your things
On the floor

Let's make the most
Of precious time
Take my hand
Now you're mine

But you keep one eye on the clock
whenever we're alone
Listen up to what I say
before you go back home

Don’t talk in your sleep
If you do, he’ll know my name
Somethin’ ‘bout jealousy
Drives a lover half insane
Redirect your eyes
When you're thinking about me
Make your alibis
And don't talk in your sleep

I'll hold you close
Kiss your lips
You deserve
More than this

But I need you here
For tonight
Damn it all
Wrong or right

Maybe you would like to stay,
but I'm afraid to make you choose
You really should be leaving
'cause you've got too much to lose

Don’t talk in your sleep
If you do, he’ll know my name
Somethin’ ‘bout jealousy
Drives a lover half insane
Redirect your eyes
When you're thinking about me
Make your alibis
And don't talk in your sleep

We're caught up in this dangerous game
Of secret passion, lies and shame
Still, I wouldn't change a thing

So don't talk in your sleep
Don't talk in your sleep
Don't talk in your sleep
Don't talk in your sleep
