Eddi Reader - When I Watch You Sleeping lyrics

when I watch you sleeping
I see myself for what I am
and the secret I’ve been keeping
it’s more than I can stand
oh I’ve tried but can’t ignore
what I know in heaven saw

that’s why when I watch you sleeping
I cry

there’s a number in my pocket
that I should really lose
and your picture in my locket
smiles so warm and true
oh my heart grows ever cold
at the thought of the lies I’ve told

that’s why when I watch you sleeping
I cry

if I confess
would you forgive me
or if I pretend
will this emptiness
always be with me

when I hear you talking
with your unquestioning faith
I stop our eyes from meeting
I turn my face away
why should you pay for the crime
when all the blame is mine

that’s why when I watch you sleeping
I cry
