"Bad Dream" as written by and Jamie Alexander Hartman....
Watching me, watching you
Watching me touch your face
Touching me, touching me
With your grace

I can't sleep
'cause without you
Life is a bad dream

Nobody knows how it feels
To hear the slightest answer
From your lips straight to me
Like the flight of a dancer
Born to move coz without you
Life is a bad dream

There's no way you can leave now in the night
And I don't want to believe now that you might
Go
No,
So open your eyes, open your eyes
I need you wide awake now
Come on get up, come on get up
'cause I'm having a breakdown
Show me your love, show me your love
Tell me that you'll never leave me

Cover my ears, cover my eyes
Don't tell me the bad news
I'll go for years, wondering why
Was there something I could do?
That's not right, that's not true
Tonight is a bad dream

There's no way you can leave now in the night
And I'm starting to believe now that you might
Go
No,
So open your eyes, open your eyes
I need you wide awake now
Come on get up, come on get up
Coz I'm having a breakdown
Show me your love, show me your love
Tell me that you'll never leave me

All I own now, all I own now
Take it
All I own now, all I own now
Take it

Open your eyes, open your eyes
I need you wide awake now
Come on get up, come on get up
'cause I'm having a breakdown
Show me your love, show me your love
Tell me that you'll never leave me

So open your eyes, open your eyes
I need you wide awake now
Come on get up, come on get up
'cause I'm having a breakdown
Show me your love, show me your love
Tell me that you'll never leave me

    General CommentI absolutely love this song
    Jamie wrote it for his mum when she was in a car accident and for about 4 hours he didn't even know if she was alive or not
    I saw them live last night and he sang it with such emotion and passion, it was amazing

    My OpinionI interpreted the song as a message to someone who was slipping into death, the singer begging the dying person to 'wake' from death. It's sung so beautifully. So controlled yet so desperate and frantic at the high notes.
