  • Don't stay awake for too long
    Don't go to bed
    I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
    I'll get you up and going out of bed

    Yeah
    I don't wanna fall asleep, I don't wanna pass away
    I been thinking of our future 'cause I'll never see those days
    I don't know why this has happened, but I probably deserve it
    I tried to do my best, but you know that I'm not perfect
    I been praying for forgiveness, you've been praying for my health
    When I leave this Earth, hopin' you'll find someone else
    'Cause yeah, we still young, there's so much we haven't done
    Getting married, start a family, watch your husband with his son
    I wish it could be me, but I won't make it out this bed
    I hope I go to heaven so I see you once again
    My life was kinda short, but I got so many blessings
    Happy you were mine, it sucks that it's all ending

    Don't stay awake for too long
    Don't go to bed
    I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
    I'll get you up and going out of bed (yeah, ayy)
    Don't stay awake for too long
    Don't go to bed
    I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
    I'll get you up and going out of bed (ayy, yeah)

    It won't be like this for too long
    It won't break me down
    Nothing feels the same when you're so far away
    The world might be strange but it's a beautiful place
    If we can make it through tomorrow
    There'll be brighter times
    Photographs of you will get me through today
    The time we spend apart will be a memory someday

    Don't stay awake for too long
    Don't go to bed
    I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
    I'll get you up and going out of bed

    Don't stay awake for too long
    Don't go to bed
    I'll make a cup of coffee for your head
    I'll get you up and going out of bed Writer/s: Beatrice Ilejay Laus, Christian Klosterman, Isaiah Faber, Oscar Freddie Lang

  • Kellen Trimble from Cambria CaI used to kind of like elements of this song... right up until I learned that the guy who wrote and performed this song isn’t dead yet. I’m like “Hey, cmon guy... let’s see a little follow through here, alright?” Jeez! Posers! I’m now too mad again to type properly. Going to go pop a few zanex, put on something soothing like Screaming for Vengeance.. and be the bigger man for a change. I bid you GOOD DAY mister Powfu! Harumph!! D:<
