  • (Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

    It's getting hard to hide this tainted lullaby
    I'm talking in my sleep
    The sky is falling down, it's getting closer now
    It's getting hard to breathe
    Your hold has kept my heart in chains
    For so long I've waited for it to break

    Something in the air's got me feeling you're here again
    And I was missing the dark without you near again
    Watching the clock hand fall asleep on us
    Oh, I've been losing my mind in these sweet dreams of loneliness

    Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
    (Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
    And I've been losing my mind in these sweet dreams

    My mind has been so dark with no way to break out
    And nowhere to be still
    It's time to cut these ties and watch our shadows fly
    Let the dark flood in
    Your hold has kept my heart in chains
    For so long I've waited for it to break

    Something in the air's got me feeling you're here again
    And I was missing the dark but now you're near again
    Watching the clock hand fall asleep on us
    Oh, I've been losing my mind in these sweet dreams of loneliness

    I'm not afraid to be alone
    To feel space, to know you're gone
    To lose control if nothing more
    To feel the burn

    Something in the air's got me feeling you're near again
    And I was missing the dark but now you're near again
    Watching the clock hand fall asleep on us
    Oh, I've been losing my mind in these sweet dreams of loneliness

    Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
    (Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
    And I've been losing my mind in these sweet dreams Writer/s: Jamie Scott, Jasmine Van Der Bogaerde
