(I Love You) When You Sleep

Sometimes I don't like what you say
Sometimes I don't like what you wear
Sometimes we don't agree when we are going out
But I love you when you sleep

Sometimes you talk on endlessly
Without ever listening to me
But I could almost forgive anything at all
'Cos I love you when you sleep

I love you when you sleep
It's a moment I can keep
Like an old bus ticket or a photograph
You don't wink or whistle or pout
Or any other thing that I've left out
Looks can kill, talk is cheap
But I love you when you sleep
Even a hard man or a creep
Can look okay when he's asleep

Some people have a lot to prove
With the way they dress and undress
And the way they move
If you should wake up and you're like that
Soon you'll never know
What you've been sleeping through

I love you when you sleep
It's a moment I can keep
Like an old bus ticket or a photograph
You don't wink or whistle or pout
Or any other thing that I've left out
Looks can kill, talk is cheap
But I love you when you sleep
Even a hard man or a creep
Can look pretty good when he's asleep
