lyrics

when you sleep
no one is homeless
when you sleep
you can't feel the hunger
when you sleep
no one is lonely in a dream.
without classes
without nations

when you sleep
she's standing there with open arms
and one night could last forever
and if you asked her
she'd never let go
and you'd stay forever

and the sun's always rising
in the sky somewhere
and if young hearts should explode
from all the lies they've been told
let the new night bring you peace
and the promise of tomorrow

where we can wake to a new beginning
tomorrow I'll all but have lost their faces
my friends and family
memories of all we had
and the times we should have lived
and tomorrow america just might fall apart
tomorrow, tell me
where will you wake up
beyond title, beyond these careers and laws
something more than borders on a map

and the sun's always rising in the sky somewhere
and if young hearts should explode
from all the lies they've been told
to live through one night like this
i would trade it for the silence
