I love you for sleeping without any clothes
I love you for letting me touch with these toes
All I miss every night
Every day every time you go away

Now by myself and I am free
To sleep bare naked and agree
With your warm body next to mine
I want to rest and have the time

To feel these clean sheets
Hug my legs
To kiss your back and neck
To cry and beg

That you stay here in barenaked land
Where I can take my smooth right hand
Wrap it 'round your chest to your heart
Where words do end and skin does start

Leaving us in dreams where all is peace
Where love making and talk cease
Where your breathing's the only sound
That fills my mind as sleep comes 'round.
