Album: Awake (2007)

  • With every appearance by you blinding my eyes,
    I can hardly remember the last time I felt like I do.
    You're an angel disguised.
    And you're lying real still
    But your heart beat is fast just like mine.
    And the movie's long over,
    That's three that have passed, one mores fine.

    Will you stay awake for me?
    I don't wanna miss anything,
    I don't wanna miss anything.
    I will share the air I breathe,
    I'll give you my heart on a string.
    I just don't wanna miss anything.

    I'm trying real hard not to shake,
    I'm biting my tongue.
    But I'm feeling alive and with every breathe that I take,
    I feel like I've won.
    You're my key to survival.
    And if it's a hero you want,
    I can save you.
    Just stay here.
    Your whispers are priceless.
    Your breathe, it is dear,
    So please stay near.

    Will you stay awake for me?
    I don't wanna miss anything,
    I don't wanna miss anything.
    I will share the air I breathe,
    I'll give you my heart on a string.
    I just don't wanna miss anything.

    Say my name, I just want to hear you.
    Say my name, so I know it's true.
    You're changing me, you're changing me,
    You showed me how to live.
    So just say, so just say
    That you'll stay awake for me.
    I don't wanna miss anything,
    I don't wanna miss anything.
    I will share the air I breathe,
    I'll give you my heart on a string,
    I just don't wanna miss anything. Writer/s: John Vesely
