now you were standing there right in front of me,
i hold on scared and harder to breathe,
all of a sudden these lights are blinding me,
i never noticed how bright they would be,


i saw in the corner there is a photograph,
no doubt in my mind it's a picture of you,
it lies there alone in it's bed of broken glass,
this bed was never made for two,


i'll keep my eyes wide open,
i'll keep my arms wide open,


don't let me,
don't let me,
don't let me go,
cause i'm tired of feeling alone,
don't let me,
don't let me go,
cause i'm tired of feeling alone,


i promised one day that i'd bring you back a star,
i caught one and it burned a hole in my hand ooooh,
seems like these days i watch you from afar,
just trying to make you understand,
i'll keep my eyes wide open yeah,


don't let me,
don't let me,
don't let me go,
cause i'm tired of feeling alone,
don't let me,
don't let me go,


don't let me,
don't let me,
don't let me go,
cause i'm tired of feeling alone,


don't let me,
don't let me,
don't let me go,
cause i'm tired of feeling alone,


don't let me,
don't let me go,
cause i'm tired of sleeping alone,

    General CommentI think that this is about his family. He is scared that they may forget him. He is scared because the blinding lights of fame made him lose sight of them momentarily and he feels so guilty he cants breathe. He tried to bring them back something good but he couldn't. He just wants to make them proud and he wants them to understand this. But he will never ignore them again.
    The sleeping alone thing is coz he probably has to sleep in a hotel room alone a lot of the time. is not the same as sleeping under the same room as your family. it is definitely not about a dead person.
