My Restless Bed

When I lay on my restless bed

When sleep's soft cloak evades me

When my eyes refuse to close

When sweet dreams will not take me

My mind casts about for reasons why

My love has turned away from me

My crime that has undone our love

My fatal flaw still eludes me

Why did we have to lose our way?

Why do we have to be so far apart?

Why can't you tell me what is wrong?

Why can't I ease your aching heart?

You told me I was the only one

You said we would never be apart

You told me that I must go away

You still own my old foolish heart

When I peer into the midnight of life

When I search for your spirit's light

When I try to make this puzzle whole

When can we try to make it right?
