If you rest for me tonight
I'll let you drive off in the morning
I don't want you in the shoulder
Where no one comes around

You go where I want
Over to the wall
Don't mind the sunrise
It weakens, it climbs
If it gets in your eyes
Just look into mine
Just look into dreams
and you'll be alright
I'll be alright

Sorry for the others
That was us for the last five years
Now it's over and it's getting better
That's how we lived
Now we're living different
Now it's over and it's getting better

If you rest for me tonight
I'll let you drive off in the morning
I don't want you in the shoulder
Where no one comes around

    Song Meaning"According to Chaz the song was written for his girlfriend asking her to not fall asleep whilst driving. We based the video on the idea of this sleep-deprived girl calling at a roadside diner for a coffee. Next thing you know she's semi-conscious and experiencing some really weird sh**"

    -From the Youtube description of the video.

    Lyric CorrectionIf you rest for me tonight,
    I'll let you drive off in the morning.
    I don't want you in the shoulder
    where no one comes around.

    You go where I was,
    I'll go to the wall.
    Don't mind the streetlights
    that leak through the blinds.
    If it gets in your eyes
    just look into mine.
    We'll slip into dreams
    and you'll be alright.
    Are you all right?

    I'm sorry for the others.
    That was us for the last five years
    now it's over and it's getting better.
    That's how we lived now we're living different,
    now it's over and it's getting better.

    [No, you know I've got to be up by six and start to be without you.]
    [No, you know I've got to be up by eight so I can get back to you.]

    General Commenti think it's about a relationship ending. it's sad but for the best. he'll let her drive off in the morning if she rests tonight so she doesn't end up in the shoulder of a road where no one will come around and find her. it's a bittersweet breakup.
