Song Meaning
Verse 1
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up,
No, don't wake me up
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up,
No, don't wake me up
Verse 2
It's the early morn
Lights flick on
Sleepy eyes peek through the blinds at something wrong
Motionless remains the mess
Shame, such a beautiful, beautiful young life
Verse 3
By the time I'm dreaming
And you've crept out on me sleeping
I'm busy in the blissful unaware
By the time I'm dreaming
And you've crept out on me sleeping
Tell me how am I supposed to care
Verse 4
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up,
No, don't wake me up
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up,
No, don't wake me up
Verse 5
A trail of clothes two years old
Why did you have to go and leave all this stuff behind
Wasn't I allowed three strikes and out
No, but you said I could, said I could just one night
Verse 6
By the time I'm dreaming
And you've crept out on me sleeping
I'm busy in the blissful unaware
Verse 7
By the time I'm dreaming
And you've crept out on me sleeping
Tell me how am I supposed to care
Verse 8
If I had let you go, let you go (sounds like Would)
Would this be different, different
Now I'll never know never know
I didn't get the chance damn you
Verse 9
If I let had you go, let you go
Would this be different, different
Now I'll never know never know
I didn't get the chance damn you
Verse 10
And by the time I'm dreaming
And you've crept out on me sleeping
I'm busy in the blissful unaware
Verse 11
And by the time I'm dreaming
And you've crept out on me sleeping
Tell me how am I supposed to care
Verse 12
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up,
No, don't wake me up
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up,
No, don't wake me up
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up,
No, don't wake me up
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up,
No, don't wake me up
Don't wake up, won't wake up, can't wake up
