"Fall Asleep" as written by and Daniel Haseltine Charles Lowell....
We wandered off like children in the woods
And let the searchers come but never find us
Tried to make a life among the trees
While your dreams collected planes and cars and cities

You slipped away from me while I was sleeping
To climb the tallest oak and see the lights
Your dissatisfaction gave you questions
Do you remember what the city sounded like?
Do you remember what the city sounded like?

[Chorus]
So stay up with me, don't fall asleep
Because we only have this moment once in our lives
And next time we'll meet under city lights
We're here tonight, so let's make it all it was meant to be

So I held you but the call was from inside
And I knew I couldn't keep you if I tried
But I watched as the distance spread, as the shadows grew
And the longings came like wolves to devour you

[Chorus]
So stay up with me, don't fall asleep
Because we only have this moment once in our lives
And next time we'll meet under city lights
We're here tonight, so let's make it all it was meant to be

So stay up with me, don't fall asleep
Because we only have this moment once in our lives
And next time we'll meet under city lights
We're here tonight

So stay up with me, don't fall asleep
Because we only have this moment once in our lives
And next time we'll meet under city lights
But we're here tonight, so let's make it all it was meant to be

Let's make it all it was meant to be
Let's make it all it was meant to be

    Song MeaningIn the music video, the "main character" is in a wedding dress in a bath. A wedding dress in a wedding means being "dressed in white" at the end, and becoming "without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless." (Ephesians 5:27). Notice that we are dressed in white by God to become without stain, but a bath is our man-made way of being without stain.
    I may be way off base, but it seems to be about idolatry. It says "We wandered off like children, in the woods" away from God. The woods seem to symbolize a life alone away from God that we have chosen. But even before the end of the verse our "dreams collected planes and cars and cities". This civilization seems to symbolize a life with God. Even as we are in the mist of the thrill of the lostness of the forest, we are still longing for the city lights. Finally, when we meet God under city lights, we try to make every moment last, because we know that we are just going to wander off into the forest again.
