"Light Sleeper" as written by Eron Bucciarelli-tieger, Micah Carli, James Ii Woodruff, Matthew Ridenour and Casey Calvert....
Sleep sleep, little darling
I swear I'm not trying to wear you out
I'm not trying to drag you down

When you fall asleep tonight
They'll be waiting for you
When you try and close your eyes
They'll try not to hate you
Sleep sleep, the night away
Act like nothing's wrong
You know we're going down

You are such a light sleeper
Count to ten and you're already up
We fall, we're in deeper
The night's gone as we open up our eyes

Nine ten, we'll never sleep again
We try, we know we'll never win
At least we know we'll make it out alive
At least we know we'll make it out this time

You are such a light sleeper
Count to ten and you're already up
We fall, we're in deeper
The night's gone as we open up our eyes

We fall (we fall)
We know that we can make it now
We fall (we fall)
We know that we can break this down
(we can break this down)

We hear what you're saying
Not enough so we keep playing
This game is what you make it
One chance so why not take it

You are such a light sleeper
Count to ten and you're already up
We fall, we're in deeper
The night's gone as we open up our eyes

Such a light sleeper
Light sleeper
Such a light sleeper

Sleep sleep, little darling
I swear I'm not trying to wear you out
I'm not trying to drag you down

    General CommentI love the way this chorus comes in, after the verses, and the repition of the intro. It's one of my favorites by far on the album, which, might I add, is excellent.
    I read in a review about the album that the reviewer said that JT is the only man in the universe who couldn't use any sexual energy at all in the intro, but I think it's better like that. It seems a lot more intimate. What the fuck, not everything has to be sex-oriented. Way to go JT!

    General Commentehh im not sure if this song just hasnt grown on me yet or if i truly dont like this as much as their old stuff. i think its about him and someone else having problem and he wanting the other person to ignore it and try to make it through--but ya im not really sure at all on this one

    General Commenti agree, i like the old ones better but this is still ok. its a little upsetting that so many people are liking these old unknown bands. i feel kind of protective haha. but this song is still ok

    General CommentHawthorne Heights never fail to amaze me ... their old stuff was great but i think that their new stuff is even better! This song is definately one of their greatest up to date.

    General Commenti dont know if anyone has notcied this but. .

    "Nine ten, we'll never sleep again"

    i think that comes from the poem about freddy..

    1 2 freddys coming for you
    3 4 better lock your door
    5 6 grab a crucifix
    7 8 stay up late
    9 10 never sleep again

    General CommentI think this song is actually about people that bash the band online all the time, and how they can keep doing it, it's not going to stop Hawthorne Heights from making music.

    We hear what you're saying
    Not enough so we keep playing
    This game is what you make it
    One chance so why not take it

    You are such a light sleeper
    Count to ten and you're already up
    We fall, we're in deeper
    The night's gone as we open up our eyes

    To me, that's them saying, yeah we get it you guys hate us, but it's our lives and it doesnt matter we're going to do what we're going to do and so are you, and also because the scene kids change their minds more than their eyeliner.
