"Don't Wait Up" as written by and Derek Karl Adam Bruce Daniel Dyck....
Don’t wait up
Don’t wait up
I tried to hurt you as hard as I could using words not fists using words not fists
I am so scared, too insecure, inside my little cage I reassure myself
That I am all alone and let my head believe what my heart already has received.

Don’t wait up
Don’t wait up
I tried to hurt you as hard I as I could, using force not strength using force not strength
I am so scared, too weak inside my little brain I reassure myself
That I will never be alone, I must let my head believe what my heart already has received.

My love I’ll bash my head in,
My life I’ll wrap you up in.
My heart I’ve set you up against
My fear ready to tuck you in.
My chest where all the light is hid
For you to lay your tired head to sleep
And dream in the quiet colours of our hearts too much I know I know
It’s you it’s you it’s you. (x 4)

I cut my heart open after santa let the guilt crawl into your mouth????
I’m your truth you be dare. (x8)

My seasons are awake like copper and silver like August illusions both of flashes of light
I’ll build a temple out of my body where you can lay yourself down
And take all your glory and gold and fashion it into your crown
So my lips will cover you in kisses
My life will be your truth your dare

I’m your truth you be dare. (x8)

Don’t wait up (don’t wait up, don’t wait up) (x8)

    General CommentShe's fallen in love but she's scared to admit it, even to herself. She tries to hurt this other person because she is angry with them for making her falling in love with them. She is going a bit crazy with her emotions, but all she really wants is this other person with her. She tells this other person all about herself, the truth, and she wants him to dare, I guess be with her.

    I basically relate to this song completely if it's taken like this. There's a couple of lines I just couldn't make out at all, help?
