"Eyelids" as written by and Lyndsey Gunnulfsen Blake Harnage....
I'll face my fear of the evening once I get used to this feeling.
I can't sleep,
That's when you're torn away from me.
While I'm dreaming I feel you leaving.

I'll face my fear of the sunrise when I wake up with your hand inside mine.
It's hard to say "good morning" when it's followed with "goodbye".
Just wanted to say "good night"

Our eyes fighting the light,
But I'm not ready to say "good night".
I try and hold on tight but it's just not time to say "good night".
Say good night.

I'll face my fear of the cold nights when you leave me behind.
I felt your hands in my hair,
I felt your breath on my neck,
Yeah, I need to feel you again.

Just wanted to say "good night."

Our eyes fighting the light,
But I'm not ready to say "good night".
I try and hold on tight but it's just not time to say "good night".
Say good night.

These eyes are closed again for yet another night.
I wake up and I can feel you by my side,
but I can't find you in the dark when you're so far.
Yeah that's the hardest part.
Here comes the hardest part.

Our eyes fighting the light,
But I'm not ready to say "good night".
I try and hold on tight but it's just not time to say "good night".
Say good night.

    General CommentNot sure if this is going to be added, but the end is Lynn's girlfriend-at-the-time, Alexa, talking. "I mean. In what world do I go to sleep after you and wake up before you?! I don’t even know how it happens. Well, I hope you’re having sweet dreams, and you call me when you wake up."

    This entire song was written about their relationship and how it's controlled by distance. Lynn's always touring with PVRIS, and Alexa is a photographer for hire who travels a lot as well. As with many things, they have to leave in the morning to go their separate ways of traveling. Sleep takes away time from their being together, so they pull all nighters just to be with each other.

    It's sad, honestly, and many people don't understand how hard it is to live with someone you love traveling. As of October 2015, they have (probably) broken up (both of their instagrams were wiped of romantic association with one another, and they haven't interacted much since), probably due to the strain of Lynn's growing popularity and the ever-growing distance they had to endure.

    General CommentI relate so much to this song. I'm almost 2 years into a long distance relationship, and during the first year this song was... so comforting for me. It described perfectly how I felt, never wanting to go to sleep, hating the morning, not being able to find them in the dark when you're finally without them again. We made it through the darker, harder parts of the distance and in August we're finally gonna move in together. Wouldn't have made it through without this song.
