I was alone wasting away, true son do not die.
I was the poison and you were the kiss.
Angel take a breath now.
This ghost inside you hurts,
And I never said goodbye...

Don't wake up [don't wake up]
There is a sickness in the roses that you hold.
Hold me and drown.

Unfortunate kiss, too close to see.
True son do not cry.
Fly away, this is war.
Angel, take a breath now.
This ghost inside you hurts,
And I never said goodbye...

Don't wake up [don't wake up]
There is a sickness in the roses that you hold.
Hold me and drown.

Don't wake up. [don't wake up]
There is a sickness in the roses that you hold.
Can you stay for awhile?
Take my hand, lets set ourselves on fire.
They say that love is war.

Pictures, light the dead, we don't need them anyway. [x2]

I can feel the headlights burning.
We descend as the glass stops breaking.
Angel, sweet angel,
Don't wake up [x4]
Don't wake up, there a sickness in the roses that you hold.
Hold me and drown.
Don't wake up [don't wake up]
There is a sickness in the roses that you hold.
Can you stay for awhile?
Take my hand, let's set ourselves on fire.

They say that love is war.
Let go, let go of winter.

    General Commentso i'm totally afraid of this album. i fucking miss kerith and brian and ryan, but yeah!

    seems okay so far. :D


    the title of this song reminds me of 28 days later, when the dude's parents leave him a note - "With endless love, we left you sleeping. Now we're sleeping with you. Don't wake up. x"

    General CommentIt makes me never want to wake up... I just think it means that a girl dies or a guy is dying and tells the girl, don't wake up, let this reality be in your mind... We will be together there... Something like that.
    He's like "hold me and drown" Die with me... A soul mate's way of being together forever. bing... I got it lol. I think that's it...
