Don't Wake Me

  • I went to bed I was thinking about you
    Ain't the same since I'm living without you
    All the memories are getting colder
    All the things that I wanna do over

    I went to bed I was thinking about you
    I wanna talk and laugh like we used to
    When I see you in my dreams at night
    It's so real but it's in my mind

    And now
    I guess
    This is as good as it gets

    Don't wake me
    'Cause I don't wanna leave this dream
    Don't wake me
    'Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough
    When it's you I'm dreaming of
    I don't wanna wake up

    I went to bed I was thinking about you
    And how it felt when I finally found you
    It's like a movie playing over in my head
    Don't wanna look 'cause I know how it ends
    All the words that I said that I wouldn't say
    All the promises I made that I wouldn't break
    It's last call, last song, last dance
    'Cause I can't get you back, can't get a second chance

    And now, I guess
    This is as good as it gets

    Don't wake me
    'Cause I don't wanna leave this dream
    Don't wake me
    'Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough
    When it's you I'm dreaming of
    I don't wanna wake up

    Don't wake me
    We're together just you and me
    Don't wake me
    'Cause we're happy like we used to be
    I know I've gotta let you go
    But I don't wanna be alone

    These dreams of you keep on growing stronger
    It ain't a lot but it's all I have
    Nothing to do but keep sleeping longer
    Don't wanna stop cause I want you back

    Don't wake me
    'Cause I don't wanna leave this dream
    Don't wake me
    'Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough
    When it's you I'm dreaming of
    I don't wanna wake up

    Don't wake me
    We're together just you and me
    Don't wake me
    'Cause we're happy like we used to be
    I know I've gotta let you go
    But I don't wanna be alone

    I went to bed I was thinking about you
    Cause I don't wanna leave this dream
    It ain't the same since I been here without you
    Cause I never seem to stay asleep
    I know I gotta let you go, I don't wanna wake up Writer/s: JOHN COOPER, BRIAN HOWES
