Only When I Sleep

Disclaimer: Ha! I wish!

Disclaimer Take Two: I don't own Two Headed Boy Part Two, it belongs to the incomparable Jeff Magnum and Neutral Milk Hotel.

A/N: I was listening to Two Headed Boy Part Two and I heard the section below and behold, this fic was born! Basically, Jess and Rory's love lives consist of a string of respective look-a-likes but there is no real satisfaction for them until they fall asleep and they can dream about the relationship they lost.

A/N Take Two: Hope you enjoy. Remember people, reviews are love!

Rings of flowers around your eyes, and I love you

For the rest of your life
