LYRICS

The sheets feel cold tonight

I miss your body on the other side

The clock says twelve to two

I’m not used to sleeping without you

And what’s keeping me awake

That I tried so hard to reach you

Cause I have so much to say

And I just realise

That lying close beside you

Is the only thing I really need tonight

You gave me a little time

To take this trip so I could finally find

There’s a man I need to be

He’s been restless deep inside of me

And I slowly start to see

That the closest things around me

Are the only ones I need

And I just realise

That lying close beside you

Is the only thing I really need tonight

But it was hard to see

When everyone around us knew exactly what to be

And now I understand

The key to open up the door has always been

Right here in my hands

The clock says half past three

The house is dark, the kids are sound asleep

and as I slip into the bed

All these thoughts keep rushing through my head

But then you slowly turn around

I look into your eyes and see

Everything is perfectly alright

And I just realise

That lying here beside you

Is as close as I will get to paradise
