Let me die before I wake...

Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

When the sunlight fades across a broken world,
A voice gently calls me to me, to stories yet untold.
Slumber slowly takes me, away from all the pain
A beautiful voice calls to me,
It calls to me,
It calls to me,
I hear him speak my name,

Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

When moonlight spreads across a blackened place,
In my head there is light, I see only his face.
My spirit soars to where it is meant to be
I beg for him to take me,
Take me away from here,
Take me away from here,
I see him smile and take my hand,

Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

When rain pours down over a bleeding earth,
In blissful dreams I lie unaware,
Away from the world of pain and regret,
In my head I am who I was born to be,
I do what I was born to do,
I see what I was meant to see,
And there’s no one to stop me,
There’s no one to stop me,

Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.

Please God hear me before I die
Let my life become my dreams
At night my soul is whole
Let it be so in the real world…
Please God, let me die before I wake
Let me stay in blissful dreams, never again see sunlight
At night my soul is whole again, it is with its love
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.
But when the sun rises, I am empty again.
