Summary: In which Jaejoong is sleepy and Changmin is the sandman.
Mr. Sandman, I want you to visit me at night and help me sleep. I want you to caress my head and whisper sweet lullabies into my ears. Gently press on my eyes and breathe your sweet breath on my face. Rock me to sleep so I can lose myself in your arms.
Changmin, Mr. Sandman, will you visit me tonight?
My bones ache and my limbs are sore. My heart is racing and wants to rest. My head is thrumming with a million thoughts.
Mr. Sandman, will you visit your Jaejoong tonight?
Without you I lie awake at night and worry—fear that something will get me. Reassure me with your presence, let me rest easy. I toss and turn; I won’t be safe like this. My legs kick and I’m not comfortable, please, just touch me.
Changmin, dear, tonight you will come?
The man next door yells and yells; they bang around and she screams; at night they are silent except for the sobs. The child in the other room screams of nightmares. He hits her. The girls isolate her. So she has nightmares.
Mr. Sandman, please visit them tonight.
For the last few years, I have not slept well. My eyes sting throughout the day. I yawn at the most inopportune moments. My body is sluggish and unresponsive. I don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. Yet I still carry on. All I want is one thing.
Changmin, come see me in my dreams tonight.
I want to see your long limbs lie next to mine –your precious fingers are what I desire. You make my dreams so sweet and fulfilling. All my pains go away when you visit me. You make my dreams reflect the world I wish I lived in. Even if the rest of the world lays awake at night, please enter my room and rest in bed with me.
Tonight Jaejoong wants to see Sandman.
Cover my eyes with sand and make it impossible for me to open them. Let me sleep for hours and hours until the sun is high in the sky. And in my dreams, let me feel you because I could not be with you awake. Please, whisper to me the words that I crave.
It’s not go to sleep. It’s not sleep tight. It’s not rest. Please, whisper to me the worse that I crave.
“Jaejoong, tonight I’ll love you fully.”
And all I want is for my dreams to be made.
The lights are off and I am in bed, waiting for you to come. I’m snuggled up nice and warm and all I can do is wait. My pillows are fluffed and I’ve had some warm milk, and I wait the night away. So clear my head and enter my heart. Give me your rich touch. Grant my wish, and cure my insomnia. Let me be happy for all that I am worth.
Changmin, Mr. Sandman, will you come for your Jaejoong tonight?
