Lyrics

1. Lie Awake

Words by Bill Greenwell and Deborah Jeanne Weitzman

I lie awake, trying not to make a sound
Thinking that you are also not sleeping
Perhaps you are I am mistaken
And its just the leaves on the trees that you’ve shaken down

Are you dreaming the sun coming in like a stream
And the day as a heart that won’t break
While I lie awake wondering why
You seem so sleepless

I get up and stand beside the door
Wondering if you can hear what I’m thinking
I guess not ‘cause you lie there as cool as a lake
And I just can’t believe how you can sleep now

I know that the morning won’t give me the words
or the meaning I’d like them to have
oh they never do

and you, are you dreaming the sun coming in like a stream

and the day as a heart that won’t break
Why I lie awake wondering why
You seem so sleepless

Perhaps I am mistaken
And you are really sleeping
And it is just the leaves on the tree that have shaken down.

2. Touch the Sky

Words and Music by Deborah Jeanne Weitzman © 2007

Sometimes I need to go there and I don’t know why
Sometimes I need to leave the earth and touch the sky

But I never dare to fly away
I’m much too scared to fly away
And you can not lie every time I see you
And one of these days I may just believe you

Whenever I try there’s a door that closes
You tell me there’ll be an opening.

And the power that I need when I’m afraid.

Sometimes I need to break down
And I don’t know how

Sometimes I need to fall apart and touch the ground
But I never dare to let it go
I’m much too scared to just let go
But you can not lie every time I see you
And one of these days I may just believe you

That I shouldn’t try when a door is closing
To trust there’ll be an opening.

And the strength that has been lacking is right there beneath my skin,
just under the struggle to hold in.

Sometimes I need to go there and I don’t know whySometimes I need to leave the
earth and touch the sky.
