"Awake" as written by and Dermot/barrett Barrett....
With every appearance by you blinding my eyes,
I can hardly remember the last time I felt like I do.
You're an angel disguised.
And you're lying real still
but your heart beat is fast just like mine.
And the movie's long over,
that's three that have passed, one more's fine.

Will you stay awake for me?
I don't wanna miss anything,
I don't wanna miss anything.
I will share the air I breathe,
I'll give you my heart on a string.
I just don't wanna miss anything.

I'm trying real hard not to shake,
I'm biting my tongue.
But I'm feeling alive and with every breathe that I take,
I feel like I've won.
You're my key to survival.
And if it's a hero you want,
I can save you.
Just stay here.
Your whispers are priceless.
Your breathe, it is dear,
so please stay near.

Will you stay awake for me?
I don't wanna miss anything,
I don't wanna miss anything.
I will share the air I breathe,
I'll give you my heart on a string,
I just don't wanna miss anything.

Say my name, I just want to hear you.
Say my name, so I know it's true.
You're changing me, you're changing me,
you showed me how to live.
So just say, so just say
that you'll stay awake for me.
I don't wanna miss anything,
I don't wanna miss anything.
I will share the air I breathe,
I'll give you my heart on a string,
I just don't wanna miss anything.

    General CommentThis is the cutest song ever!! He's saying that he's so in love with her and he never takes one minute of their time together for granted.
    "Will you stay awake for me?
    I don't wanna miss anything"
    He doesn't care what he has to do... he just wants to spend more time with her.

    General CommentI can really feel for that first paragraph line. My boyfriend and I did that.

    "And you're lying real still
    But your heartbeat is fast just like mine.
    And the movie long over
    That's three that have passed so far."

    I heard that line and just melted, remembering that special moment for me. :')

    General CommentI love this song I wish I would have heard it sooner to me it is about someone who's in your life that you love wether it be a family member or a gf or bf that you want to stay with you and stay alive it hits close to home with me cause I'll soon be graduating and although this song holds true more to someone dying, leaving everything you know can be just as bad!!
