  • To those of you I loved
    This pains me to lose
    I hate to feel used

    I'm frightened in sleep, thinking my world will be gone
    Promise me I won't die
    I panic in dreams from when I was still young
    Please don't turn on that light
    I can't see it

    To those of you I've lost
    That pained me to love
    Please know that I tried
    Please know that I tried

    I'm frightened in sleep, thinking my world will be gone
    Promise me I won't die
    I panic in dreams from when I was still young
    Please don't turn on that light
    I can't see it

    Do you really think
    That I would leave you?
    But I couldn't stand myself
    So I had to choose
    Still you turn me on
    The wild in your eyes
    But now I can't trust myself
    To keep on the light
    For us to see with

    I'm frightened in sleep, thinking our world will be gone
    Promise me I won't die
    I panic in dreams from when I was still young
    Please don't turn on that light

    I'm frightened in sleep, thinking our world will be gone
    Promise me I won't die
    I panic in dreams from when I was still young
    Please don't turn on the Writer/s: Benjamin Weinman, Gregory Puciato
