Harry Valentine - Sleepwalking

English

Sleepwalking

Under a neon sky, I thought I caught your eye
From across the bar
I wanted to know you, wanted to find out
Who you are
 
You give me a smile, and then we talk a while
I never ask your name
You laugh a lot, and then we do some shots
Until we feel no pain
 
They played the samba
Then I took your number
You wrote it down in lipstick on my hand, oh
As the music faded
We got separated
Now I'm trying to find your footprints in the sand
 
And I go sleepwalking
It's the dream talking
I can hear my breathing
Will my brain stop retrieving
Information?
Lost in a daydream
That'll never end
'Til I see you again
 
After hours and I go searching the bars
I'm in a kind of haze
Looking for something that amounts to nothing
I go on for days
 
Give me some time, I need a little more time
To process this
I see the sun rising and I'm realizing
That I lost your kiss
 
They play the samba
As I look in wonder
At the beauty of this strange and distant land, oh
I hear the thunder
And I run for cover
And the rain has washed your lipstick from my hand
 
And I go sleepwalking
It's the dream talking
I can hear my breathing
Will my brain stop retrieving
Information?
Lost in a daydream
That'll never end
'Til I see you again
 
Sometimes I feel like I'm sleepwalking
Dead on my feet
Forever to relive this moment
Wake, eat, sleep, repeat
Places, faces, serenade me with this sad refrain
'Til I see you again
