  • The background audio is "Talking In Your Sleep" by The Romantics, reversed and slowed down.

When you close your eyes and go to sleep
and it's down to the sound of a heartbeat
i can hear the things that you're dreaming about
when you open up your heart
and the truth comes out
you tell me that you want me
you tell me that you need me
you tell me that you love me
and i know that i'm right
'cause i hear it in the night
I hear the secrets that you keep
when you're talking in your sleep
When i hold you in my arms at night
don't you know you're sleeping in the spotlight
and all your dreams that you keep inside
you're telling me the secrets
that you just can't hide
When you close your eyes and you fall asleep
everything about you is a mystery

  • This video was uploaded after the Observer's second kidnapping of Noah, on 11/11/11, Noah's birthday.
