03. Don't Wake Me

Awake (Deluxe Edition)
by Skillet



 

V1
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

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

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

Chorus:
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 don't wake me

V2
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

Bridge
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


(John L. Cooper/ Brian Howes)

Behind the Song:
"Itís about someone you lost- either someone who broke up with you or died- and the fact that dreaming about them is the only time youíre both together, which is why you never want to wake up. This is the Ď80s prom song for the record thatís a slow dance all the way!" - John Cooper (Skillet)
