"Don't Sleep" as written by Delmar Drew Arnaud, Tupac Amaru Shakur, Yafeu Fula, Malcolm Greenidge, Chicago Craig,, Darryl R. Richardson, Sean Cole and Mutah W. Beale....
And the phone, it rings without a pulse
But I can't wait, I can't wait for the truth
Cause I know it won't come from your lips
And the sound it, makes its way down through the hall
And into my, and into my room,
And I don't know what to do
Cause I can't wait, I can't wait for the truth

Don't sleep, don't sleep so sound tonight
(Don't sleep, don't sleep so sound)
Cause the town still sleeps
The same with you away

Don't wake, don't drown the thoughts you like
(Don't wake, don't drown your thoughts)
Because everything is fine without you

And I finally found the nerve to hear your falsies,
A game of pulses racing over and over again
(Over and over again) Over and over again.
She said, "I won't begin to ask you why you're leaving,
Why you did those things you did.
Why you said those things you said."

Don't sleep, don't sleep so sound tonight
(Don't sleep, don't sleep so sound)
Cause the town still sleeps
The same with you away

Don't wake, don't drown the thoughts you like
(Don't wake, don't drown your thoughts)
Because everything is fine without you

And your lights go out,
Yeah, the air's so much easier to breathe
And my last farewell to you
Might as well be said right here, right now

Don't sleep, don't sleep so sound tonight
(Don't sleep, don't sleep so sound)
Cause the town still sleeps
The same with you away

Don't sleep, don't sleep so sound tonight
(Don't sleep, don't sleep so sound)
Because everything is fine without you.

    General Commentso as for actually explaining the song MEANiNG as this site is meant for....

    we've got a liar on our hands. a girl who lied and he heard from someone the truth. not from her.
    "Dont sleep, dont sleep so sound tonight" means dont be so okay with lying to me, you should be hurting too. And "cause the sound still sleeps the same with you away" means there are still no words coming from the girl. Silence remains. She leaves. He's trying to find closure in her absense.

    General CommentA compulsive liar in a relationship is a terrible thing. Someone too proud or ignorant to fess up to their faults and instead continue to cling to the idea of "oil and water" working together when time and time again it spurs up more conflict baaah
