    Lyrics

    You're only just a dreamboat sailing in my head
    You swim my secret oceans of coral blue and red
    Your smell is incense burning
    Your touch is silk and yet it reaches through my skin
    And moving from within it clutches at my breast

    But it's only when I sleep
    (Only when I sleep)
    See you in my dreams
    You got me spinning round and round
    Turning upside down

    But I only hear you breathe
    (I hear you breathe)
    Somewhere in my sleep
    Got me spinning round and round
    Turning upside down but it's only when I sleep

    And when I wake from slumber your shadows disappear
    Your breath is just a sea mist surrounding my body
    I'm working through the day time but when it's time to rest
    I'm lying in my bed listening to my breath
    Falling from the edge

    But it's only when I sleep
    (Only when I sleep)
    See you in my dreams
    (Dreams)
    You got me spinning round and round
    Turning upside down

    But I only hear you breathe
    (I hear you breathe)
    Somewhere in my sleep
    (In my sleep)
    Got me spinning round and round
    Turning upside down but it's only when I sleep

    Yeah
    Yeah

    Yeah
    Yeah

    It's only when I sleep

    (Up to the sky where angels fly)
    (I'll never die)
    (Hawaiian high)

    It reaches through my skin
    And moving from within it clutches at my breast

    But it's only when I sleep
    (Only when I sleep)
    See you in my dreams
    (Dreams)
    You got me spinning round and round
    (Spinning around)
    Turning upside down

    But I only hear you breathe
    (I hear you breathe)

    In bed I lie
    No need to cry
    My sleeping cry
    Hawaiian high

    But it's only when I sleep
    (Got me spinning round and round)
