"40 Days..." as written by Michael Elvis Baskette, Beau Bokan, Eric Lambert, Jared Warth, Matt Traynor and Elliot Gruenberg....
Let's start at one, and count the days.
Let's hope to God that time flies like they say.
'Cause this instance,
Can distance my heart from yours tonight.
But I'm wide awake now,
And I'm holding your picture.
It's so cold here.
Without you, without you.

And I need you now, 'cause its killing me.
And I wish somehow, you were here with me.
When I fall asleep, I feel you with me.
Till I fall asleep, and you are with me.

Could this be more,
I've been up all night, riding subway lines.
Now we're sleeping on your floor.
Can we make this a lifetime, you're all I want right now
Life keeps telling me I need to go,
But what if I wanna stay.
'Cause I'm lost here without you, without you.

And I need you now, 'cause it's killing me.
And I wish somehow, you were here with me.
When I fall asleep, I feel you with me.
Till I fall asleep, and you are with me

I've found a love I never had before you changed me,
And I will wait however long it takes.
You changed me.

You say the words, that I've been thinking
I'll never let you go.

And I need you now, cause it's killing me
And I wish somehow, you were here with me
When I fall asleep, I feel you with me
Till I fall asleep, and you are with me

You changed me.
You changed me.

    General CommentBeau Bokan has recently been engaged to his gf, Lights. They are both musicians and often away for "40 days" with touring, etc.. Its a love song from him to her, using lyrics from one of her songs "And Counting".
    "When I fall Asleep I feel you with me, until I fall asleep and you are with me"

    "I’ve never written an actual love song before, but after meeting the woman I’m going to spend the rest of my life with, it came very naturally. In fact, I took a line from a song she wrote for me and used it in this song. It was a first for both of us! It gets pretty detailed and pretty specific. I think anyone that spends time apart from the one they love can relate." - Beau in an interview

    General CommentI find the title of the song self explanatory. It's about someone who's been away from their girlfriend/loved one for 40days..
