"Don't Want You to Wake Up" as written by and Jeff Cohen Teitur Lassen....
Dont want you to wake up.
Stay under the stars,
Where noone can make us,
Change what we are.

Dreamers in the dark,
following our hearts.

Try to be silent.
My eyes are too loud.
I sit back in my hiding,
While you're in the clouds.
One kiss away from what I have to say.

Don't want you to wake up.
Stay under the stars,
Where no one can make us,
Change what we are.
Don't want you to wake up.

Its almost the morning,
one foot out the door.
As I let the light in,
To love you even more,
May our minds lose the battle.
And may our hearts win the war.

Don't want you to wake up.
Stay under the stars.
Where noone can make us,
Change what we are.(2x)

Dont want you to Wake up

    General CommentHis new album is good. I preferred his first one..
    but, still, it's still absolutely amazing.
    He has a brilliant voice.

    What it's about...
    I came here hoping I could get a litle help with that.....

    General CommentI get the impression he's wanting to hold onto something that can't be...once the light of day starts (read: reality) presents itself, but while it's nighttime, he can fool himself...

    Ahh, I can relate very well. *sigh*

    Song MeaningI believe he's talking about his newfound love, as he's watching her sleep. Possibly a person he's having an affair with, since someone is trying to make them "change what we are". Also he has one foot out the door, as if he needs to go away soon.
    He admires his lovers' beauty as she's sleeping, wishing the moment could last forever.

    It's a truly beautiful song. The acoustic guitar- part between the verse and chorus is exquisite.
