"If It Was Up To Me" as written by and Vlad Luca/diliberto Gheorghiu....
Whoa oh, whoa oh
I'd be sleeping now if it was up to me

Sly fox, you really tricked me
Now you've got me on a leash
Throw me a bone, just drive me home
Or give me something good to read

I am a nail stuck in a wall without a string
Around my neck tied to a frame
Vacant with no war to wage
Can't teach a boy what he don't wanna learn

Whoa oh, whoa oh
I'd be sleeping now if it was up to me
Whoa oh, whoa oh
Wouldn't hear a sound if it was up to me
If it was up to me

As empty as this summer town street in January
Without a shoe pressing the pavement
Walking by me patiently
And there's a song charming my ears infinitely

Motherly it gently sings
In my headphones whispering
Making sure that I am not alone

Whoa oh, whoa oh
I'd be sleeping now if it was up to me
Whoa oh, whoa oh
Wouldn't hear a sound if it was up to me

Fill me, I'm drying out and thin
Save me, I know you'd kill it

Fill me, I'm drying out and thin
Save me, I know you'd kill it

Fill me, I'm drying out and thin
Save me, I know you'd kill it

Whoa oh, whoa oh
I'd be sleeping now if it was up to me
Whoa oh, whoa oh
Wouldn't hear a sound if it was up to me

Whoa oh, whoa oh
Wouldn't hear a sound if it was up to me

    General Commentthis song ROCKS!!!!!! Though hes sings about going to sleep, i think that this song isnt about going to sleep as much as it is about going through some form of strife, i have no idea what it is. I think that what hes really saying about sleeping is that he could be feeling a need for peace, possibly just enough to 'be sleeping now if it was up to me'. Any other thoughts?
