  • We fight sleep 'cause we don't wanna miss a moment
    We hold tight 'cause we don't want the night to end
    This feeling, I wish I could freeze and own it
    So we could keep living it all again

    So you're looking at me in that way
    Body on lips, ain't it bliss?
    Anything to stay awake
    I'm counting my seconds with you
    It feels like I'm falling into
    A state of electrical new

    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?
    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?
    So we can be together forever, together forever
    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?

    Let's push through until today turns tomorrow
    'Cause the truth is I don't wanna see you go
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    You're looking at me in that way
    Body on lips, ain't it bliss?
    Anything to stay awake
    I'm counting my seconds with you
    It feels like I'm falling into
    A state of electrical new

    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?
    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?
    So we can be together forever, together forever
    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?
    Why don't we fight

    We could be together forever, ooh

    Don't you be closing your eyes
    Let yourself loose in the dark
    Just for tonight you are mine
    I'm counting my seconds with you
    It feels like I'm falling into
    A state of electrical new
    Why don't we fight

    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?
    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?
    So we can be together forever, together forever
    Why don't we fight sleep, fight sleep, fight sleep?
    Why don't we fight

    You're looking at me in that way
    Body on lips, ain't it bliss?
    Anything to stay awake (Why don't we fight)
    I'm counting my seconds with you
    It feels like I'm falling into
    A state of electrical new
    Why don't we fight sleep? Writer/s: Dagny Norvoll Sandvik, Justin Drew Tranter, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson
