"Until Morning" as written by Christopher Andrew Carrabba and Bradley Glenn Walker....
It was the year
I crashed my motor bike
I think it was the summer
I think you whispered

When you gonna wake up?
When you gonna wake up?

Dear
Slip these on your tongue
Let us see it's a reinvention
In angels hands, the medicine, a modern man

Wait now
Tell me that this isn't over
Hang on
Just long enough

If this is heaven
Or if it's just a warning
Say you will stay with me
Even if it's just til' morning

If this is over
Then why is it so hard?
Just say you will stay with me
One more night

Stay here
And we can start again
And we can be made over
You'll hear us shouting

When you gonna wake up?
When you gonna wake up?

Scared
Well everyone gets scared
Just signal when your ready
And angels hands seem so steady
Seem so steady

Wait now
Tell me that this isn't over
Hang on
Just long enough

If this is heaven
Or if it's just a warning
Say you will stay with me
Even if it's just til' morning

If this is over
Then why is it so hard?
Just say you will stay with me
One more night

If your running
From your secrets
I will make you take them with you
I am ready
I can take it
You don't have to carry them alone
There's a way out
If you want it
To an end or a new beginning

You just have to find it on your own

If this is heaven
Or if it's just a warning
Say you will stay with me

If this is over
Then why is it so hard?
Just say you will stay with me
One more night

One more night
One more night
One more night
(even if its just til' morning)

One more night
One more night
One more night
(even if its just til' morning)

    Song Meaningthis song is really good. it can be related to any slowly fading situation really - in particular, this is about not wanting someone to die for whatever reason, i would assume that the two were friends and tried drugs:

    Dear, slip these on your tongue
    Little seeds of reinvention
    And Angels hands
    The medicine of modern man

    ...and while the singer is alright, they're waiting by the other who may have gone too far with the drugs, i assume, and just wants them to hear that they wish they weren't going, and wish that they would stay alive as long as possible, so they can be together.

    i fear that this may happen to a friend of mine...

    General CommentTo me, the drugs thing seems like it's more an act of desperation to keep the person alive. Not the cause of the death but a way to keep them alive for a little bit longer. That's just me though.

    Yeah, so other than that I don't know whether to take this song literally or not.

    But literally I guess it's desperate for the person to say alive for just a little bit longer.
    And metaphorically it's desperate for the person to not leave the singer for just a little bit longer.
