Something's been eating me up
It's 4 in the morning my eyes should be shut
Is it cold where you're sleeping,
Do you keep on wishing that someday I might just show up.

Remember the plans that we made?
About getting married and where we would stay
Do you still hope we end up that way?
Cause I know I've been praying each day

Let me whisk you away from your doubts and denial
Oh I know that you've heard this before
From the gentleman who's struggling because of the miles
Who's begging to make him your own.

Something's been causing this pain,
I know it's not real, it just feels that way
How did things dramatically change?
Wish things would've just stayed the same

Don't you dare wake me up
I don't want to wake up without you next to me
Don't you dare wake me up

Let me whisk you away from your doubts and denial
Oh I know that you've heard this before
From the gentleman who's struggling because of the miles
Who's begging to make him your own.

Let me whisk you away from your doubts and denial
Oh I know that you've heard this before
From the gentleman who's struggling because of the miles
Who's begging to make him your own.

    General Commentim pretty sure this is about taylor. but it can easily be about any relationship or friendship. i think it is so beautiful and amazing. i think its about stuggles of long distance relationships. he is totally in love with her and all he wants is to be with her.

    my only confusion is the fourth stanza at the end when he ways "how did things dramatically change? wish things would've just stayed the same."

    is he not wanting all his glory of being who he is and wants to stay with her and only be with her?

    maybe there was an event that he doesnt want his audience to really know about, only her. either way. it is an amazing song. i wonder why no one else has commented it. its so lovely!

    General CommentI think this song is about how he went through a breakup with a girl (i guess someone named Taylor?) because one of them moved away and now it's really bothering him and he wishes that he could just go back to how things used to be.
