Roy Orbison — Afraid To Sleep lyrics

The night is still the wind is chilled
I hear the rain falling on my window pane
Can't close my eyes, afraid to sleep
Cause when I do I would only dream of you
I'm trying to forget that we ever met
But how can I forget and dream of you?
Afraid to sleep because I'd dream of you
Afraid to sleep because I'd wake up feeling blue
If I stay awake forever,we'd never be together
So I'll close my eyes and go ahead and dream
Sweet dreams
Sweet dreams
Sweer dreams....
[ Lyrics from: ]
