"Harlow's Song (Can't Dream Without You)" as written by and Luke Walker Joel Madden....
I can't dream without you

When you close you're eyes and go to sleep tonight
I'll be right outside you're door
Dreams will come and take you away
Let them bring you back to me

And tomorrow when you wake
I'll be next you
From protection from the day
When the tears fall down you're face like morning dew
I'll be there to put a smile on you're face
And I'll say

I don't wanna live this life without you
I don't wanna spend a night without you
I don't wanna know what it's like
I can't dream without you
I can't dream without you

Let you're fire burn bright the world to see
You are the better part of me
When you hold my hand and I'll swear that I believe
I'm living in my wildest dreams
And I see

I don't wanna live this life without you
I don't wanna spend a night without you
I don't wanna know what it's like
I can't dream without you

Flowers for you're hair
Rainbows for you're eyes to see
You're dreams are everywhere
They'll carry you away from me
Away from me someday
Away from me someday

I don't wanna live this life without you
I don't wanna spend a night without you
I don't wanna know what it's like
I can't dream without you
I don't wanna live this life without you
I don't wanna spend a night without you
I don't wanna know what it's like
I can't dream without you

    General CommentFirst I thought the song was for his wife or something, but now I understand that it is for Joel's daughter. And I agree, it's a little creepy that he says "when you close your eyes and go to sleep tonight I'll be right outside your door". But the rest of the song is adorable, and I think that Harlow will be so touched when she's old enough to understand that her dad wrote her such a beautiful song :')

    Lyric CorrectionLove this song. I don't have children, but I can just feel the incredible amount of love a parent has for their child expressed in this song. And Joel watching Harlow fall asleep isn't creepy, it's his daughter. A lot of parents watch their children fall asleep to make sure they are okay.

    Correction: *YOUR protection from the day

    General CommentI know this song is about Joel's daughter, but I think it was written in such way, so people that are in love would find themselves in it too, so I think is a love song. Joel meant it for his daughter, but it could be as well about a lover.
