"Sleeping In" as written by John Hutchinson Dean, Christopher Gentry, Simon Ian White, Matthew Everitt and Stuart Black....
I've been sleeping in for days,
'Cause when I am awake,
I will have to face my life.
And I'm hoping it's a phase.
The walls that I create
Can only make it seem alright.
And I get carried away like I'm the only one
Who's ever felt the way that I do,
But I can hear you say, "You're not the only one.
Everybody hopes to get through."

And it's got me sleeping in.
Every day God, it's the same thing.
Yeah, you caught me sleeping in.
I'm still hiding; I'm still waiting.
I need you here with me to face the world outside
Cause I'm tired of sleeping in.

I've been waking up with fear,
Cause all that I can hear
Is the ringing of alarms downtown.
It's been going on for years,
But you have made it clear
That I am not alone in this crowd.
And I get carried away like I'm the only one
Who's ever felt the way that I do,
But I can hear you say, "You're not the only one.
Everybody hopes to get through."

And it's got me sleeping in.
Every day God, it's the same thing.
Yeah, you caught me sleeping in.
I'm still hiding; I'm still waiting.
I need you here with me to face the world outside
Cause I'm tired of sleeping in.

Open up my eyes.
I'm tired of sleeping in
In a world that's dying to wake up.

I'm done with sleeping in.

    General CommentThis song is amazing, i love the piano with his voice<3

    But i really think this song is about how he's tired of just going from day to day with his circumstances staying the same, never getting better. He just wants to hide from the world and give up, but then God gives him the hope he needs and helps his face the world.
