"Fall Asleep" as written by and Jack Antonoff....
I like to think about you late at night
When no one is awake
I wonder what it is you do
If you feel, can you break?
Will you wake up?
Do you fall down?
Is it hard living what we live in your sleep?

And when I fall asleep
I want to see you there in a dream
I want to take you to the heart of every place that I've been
I'm around you, I know you're around me
But sure as I'll wake up
You will always stay fast asleep

Oh, I don't know if you know
But I found someone
Worth taking life a bit slow as we're moving
Everything's turning
Everyone's running
But you will always stay fast asleep

And when I fall asleep
I want to see you there in a dream
I want to take you to the heart of every place that I've been
I'm around you, I know you're around me
But sure as I'll wake up
You will always stay fast asleep

I'm not as lost as I was
I see how I can go on
I feel the road far ahead
I hear the words in the songs I've been singing
Everything's turning
I won't stop running until the moment
That I fall back asleep

And when I fall asleep
I want to see you there in a dream
I want to take you to the heart of every place that I've been
I'm around you, I know you're around me
But sure as I'll wake up
You will always stay fast asleep

    General CommentThis song is about Jack's younger sister who died from cancer when she was young. In an interview (or at a show i dont remember which) Jack said this song is letter he wrote to her.

    The female on the last chorus is Jack's older sister Rachel Antonoff (rachelantonoff.com) she is a awesome fashion designer, and she sings this song on terrible thrills vol. 1
