SLEEPING AWAY – Baby I’ve been watching you, watching everything you do and I just can’t help but feeling. Someone else is stealing you away from me, I see it written in your eyes, you confirm it with your lies. Though the web that you weave can hold me, I would rather that you told me where you wanna be. Oooh slipping away from me, and it’s breaking me in two, watching you slipping away. Baby I’ve been watching you, watching everything you do, and I just can’t help but feeling.
