Sleepwalker

Album: For Your Entertainment (2009)
  • I saw a picture of you
    Hanging in an empty hallway
    I heard a voice that I knew, and I couldn't walk away
    It sent me back to the end of everything
    I tasted all, I tasted all the tears
    Again

    Outside the rain's pouring down
    There's not a drop that hits me
    Scream at the sky but no sound
    Is leavin' my lips
    It's like I can't even feel
    After the way you've touched me
    I'm not asleep
    But I'm not awake
    After the way you loved me

    I can't turn this around
    I keep running into walls that I can't break down
    I said, I just wander around
    With my eyes wide shut because of you

    I'm a sleepwalker
    Walker
    Walker
    I'm a sleepwalker
    Walker
    Walker

    Let me outta this dream
    Everywhere that I go, I see another memory
    And all the places we used to know, they're always there to haunt me
    I walk around and I feel so lost and lonely
    You're everything that I want
    But you don't want me

    I can't turn this around
    I keep running into walls that I can't break down
    I say I just wander around
    With my eyes wide shut because of you

    I'm a sleepwalker
    Walker
    Walker
    I'm a sleepwalker
    Walker
    Walker

    Let me outta of this dream
    Dream
    Let me outta of this dream

    I can't turn this around
    I keep running into walls that I can't break down
    I say I just wander around
    With my eyes wide shut because of you
    I'm a sleepwalker
    Walker
    Walker
    I'm a sleepwalker
    Walker
    Walker
    I'm a sleepwalker
    Walker
    Walker
    I'm a sleepwalker
    Walker
    Walker
