lyrics

You wake up early, but it feels so late
the sun is shining in right on your face
you went to bed again with that feeling in your head

You decided wrong, you missed your chance, your call
You tried to hard, or not at all
You may not make it right, but you'll have to make it to the night

Because the sleep is full of dreams
the sleep is full of dreams
the sleep is full of dreams

You come home early, but it still feels late
Your job can't kill you, but it comes damn close
You're sick to death again with the world that we live in

The rent is late, the bills aren't paid
A war goes on so far away
You're out to change the world. Well, I'd change if I could

I'd never judge or get angry, I'd be more kind, I'd be a saint
I'd wake up to the truth

But the sleep is full of dreams
the sleep is full of dreams
the sleep is full of dreams

[lyrics in French]

You left so early, I left too late.
I missed the train while you had to wait.
I'm standing in the rain, left behind again.

These words aren't easy, but I wanted to say.
All I wanted was for you to stay.
Time is only change, so let's swear to stay this way.

As if these words meant a thing, but you'd believe they're all there is and thought can change the world we're in, so let's sleep it all away.

'Cause the sleep is full of dreams
the sleep is full of dreams
the sleep is full of dreams
the sleep is full of dreams . . .
