Lyrics: 

V1
I pull the soft white sheets
loose up around your shoulders
move stray locks of hair
from your face

I watch your lips slowly move
feel every breath you take
tears fill my eyes I
count the days

C
tonight
I lie awake
and turn to you
i wonder...
wonder if you
still dream...
dream of me

tonight
I lie awake
and turn to you
I worry....
worry that soon
you'll set....
set me free

V2
when you curve closer into me
it makes me smile and remember
times when we made love
all night long

when you open up your eyes
and look surprised into mine
then roll away I know
you have gone

C
tonight
I lie awake
and turn to you
i wonder...
wonder if you
still dream...
dream of me

tonight
I lie awake
and turn to you
I worry....
worry that soon
you'll set....
set me free

B
not many moons ago
love's stars shone in our eyes
days and nights went by too fast
now the stars are hiding
beyond a wall of dark clouds
I know our love will not last

C
tonight
I lie awake
and turn to you
i wonder...
wonder if you
still dream...
dream of me

tonight
I lie awake
and turn to you
I worry....
worry that soon
you'll set....
set me free

Wow. Poignant and dramatic without being sappy. Well done.

There is really nice imagery in this one, it's vivid and evokes a lot of emotion.

The sadness and expected heartache comes through very strongly. This isn't a melancholy lyric, but you certainly relate the resignation and foreshadowing sadness. Just kinda hurts ready it.
