If I could I'd blow the sun out
And bury you deep within my bed
I'd give you my lungs to breathe as I do
As if you're in love
As if it's the end

And we're never waking up
(We're never waking up)
And we're never waking up
(We're never waking up)

I let my eyes move as they wish
They fall into place so jealously

And we're never waking up
(We're never waking up)
And we're never waking up
(We're never waking up)

I'm falling slowly into
All the dreams we left behind
Forever asleep

And we're never waking up
(We're never waking up)
And we're never waking up
(We're never waking up)
And we're never waking up
(We're never waking up)
And we're never waking up

    General CommentThis song has a very Bright Eyes feel to it, I'm talking the "Fevers and Mirrors" days, very cool.

    General Commenti think it's about the day after first making love to someone you really, really love, and how you just want to stay in bed forever, and that represents a dream.

    and then afterwards, he gets jealous of any guy the girl talks to "They fall into place so jealously"

    and he just wants to go back to how they were.


    i gave it a shot...

    General Commentoh, and it's
    "Forever a sleepWALKER"
    not, "forever asleep"

    That's the line they named the album after.

    General CommentMy best guess is that this is about the end of a relationship. The guy is wishing he could make a night last forever and whining about the "dreams we left behind".

    General CommentAnother under appreciated song by JamisonParker.
    I get a "I'd spend the rest of my life dreaming, as long as it can be with you, but since we don't fall asleep together anymore, I'll keep the dreams we used to have and I'll dream alone".. something along those lines

    JamisonParker creates such amazing songs and lyrics. =]

    General Commenti agree with ellie117. a guy and girl just had sex together for the first time and now they can't think of what else to do. so now they just want to fall asleep and stay like that because they don't want any akwardness to happen once they open their eyes in the morning.
