  • They say that some things are too good to be true
    But I just hope they ain't talking about you
    I heard that everything must come to an end
    But I just can't imagine me without you

    Don't tell me I'm dreamin'
    Cause if I've been dreamin'
    I don't ever want to wake up
    So in love with this feelin'
    Tonight I'll be sleepin'
    Sleepin' with my eyes wide shut

    Out of sight they say out of mind
    But your image will remain til the end of time
    I'm strong but hearts are easy to break

    Don't want to fall if there ain't no one to catch me
    Me without you, me without you

    Oh, I don't ever want to wake up

    Don't tell me I'm dreamin'
    Cause if I've been dreamin'
    I don't ever want to wake up
    So in love with this feelin'
    Tonight I'll be sleepin'
    Sleepin' with my eyes wide shut Writer/s: DEEKAY, ASTON MERRYGOLD, JONATHAN GILL, MARVIN HUMES, ORITSE WILLIAMS
