I want to sleep on the air mattress with you
And let the air leak out, what won't I do?
And as we sleep our bodies slowly meet
I can feel it when your heart beats
I do

The air mattress with you
(Can I sleep on)
The air mattress with you

It's under covers where it all begins
And we pretend that we are just friends
But when the others fall asleep, it ends
We become lovers once again
We do

The air mattress with you
(Can I sleep on)
The air mattress with you
(Can I sleep on)
The air mattress with you
(Can I sleep on)
The air mattress with you

My dreams, they have a holiday
My lungs, they twist the night away
And even if I stay away
I still get rest for hours
I still get rest for hours
I still get rest for hours

And even if there was a king-size bed
Where I can stretch my legs and lie my head
All by myself, in the darkest room
Just know, that no matter what the options are
I choose . . .

The air mattress with you
(Can I sleep on)
The air mattress with you
(Can I sleep on)
The air mattress with you
(Can I sleep on)
The air mattress with you

    General CommentYup. by taylor. he said that he based the song about an air mattress because when you sleep on an air mattress with a girl and there's a leak or something and over night the middle of the air mattress looses it's air making the two lovers forced by gravity together by morning time.

    it's really...
    "And let the air leak out, THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH."

    and

    "My lungs, they twist the night away
    And even if I stay away"

    it's really...
    "My LIMBS, they twist the night away
    And even if I stay AWAKE"

    General CommentThis song makes my heart melt! There was about a year where my boyfriend couldn't afford a bed, so he slept on an air mattress... Self-explanatory <3

    My OpinionThis is probably the worst thing I have ever heard with Conor's name on it. I know it's Hollingsworth singing but good lord, it sounds like a Beach Boys throwaway with whiny vocals. Total disappointment.
