Before I Awake

As darkness wraps us with it's cloak
our fears of next day rest
Inside our dreams our lust awoke
to end in our conquest

The church bells sound from far away
the time is drawing near
our destiny comes clear today
so wasted all these years

Our eyes detect the darkness fade
from black to gray to light
our bedroom takes on different shades
that shadows just can't fight

We burrow deeper in the quilt
ward off the coming wake
a sigh escapes our sleeping guilt
alarm we can't forsake

As feet explore the floor for shoes
our minds are still in dreams
our bodies beg for sleep it's due
it's never what it seems

Awareness finally makes it's break
we gather by the shower
it happens now before I awake
at this ungodly hour
