Lyrics

This Song

Written By: Roxanne Christian-Olvera

This Song

Verse

I toss and turn at night;
I’ve messed my sleep up,
I just can’t get it right.
I’m reminiscing our love’s delight.

We’ve been through trails and tests,
But we stuck through it;
Did our best
And prayed that God would do the rest.

Pre-Chorus

And now I lay me down to sleep
Pray to the Lord my soul to keep
Sedated by your love so sweet

Chorus

I wrote this song
Last night in my dreams
Curled up tight,
So deep in my sleep,
Thinking of you
Only you
You alone are on my mind
You alone my soul finds

Verse

Tranquilized, I fantasize
About staring in your eyes;
Though it’s a dream I see you clearly.

Sometimes you’re oh so far,
But when you’re oh so near
I get lost in your arms
Your tender touch feels safe and warm.

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Bridge

Tossing and turning in my sleep
Constant yearning for your deep
Tender touch and sweet romance;
Loving you’s one soulful dance.
