Do go on I'm keen to hear more.
Do go on, I haven't been able to sleep recently, but the sound of your voice droning on is making me feel very drowsy,
And I dream I am with you far away and only you comfort me forever.
Waking I find the room empty, as homely as a condemned man's cell.
I went to sleep and I was surrounded by loved ones.
I woke up suddenly and realised that everyone I had ever loved had disappeared
And I am with them; they are inside me.
