"Awake And Dreaming" as written by Scott Anderson, James Ryan Black and Arnold David Lanni....
I can't lose anything
So what's left is mine
And I win this time

Consolation day
I'll make up a way
I'll know now just what to say

I'll get away from you
Wait and I'll be begging
I'll pull you down

I saw it all again
Fading memory became clear to me
I try but I can't say
That I'm yours for good
Support me you said you would

I'll get away from you
Wait and I'll be begging
I'll pull you down

Awake and dreaming
I'm only sleeping

    General CommentIt's about the confusing emotions you feel after a break-up. You hate them because they betrayed you, but you're still in love with them.

    General CommentScott Anderson's voice makes me pant. =)

    All joking aside, I think Finger Eleven is just incredible. I almost cried when Tip got stolen from me, because where I live it's not that easy to find copies of their first album, only The Greyest of Blue Skies (which is also one of the few albums that I genuinely am in awe of every song; Tip too).

    They're just... you can tell that they're actually FEELING what they're writing about.

    General CommentThe songs about, I think, him getting his dream come true because he's with this person, but he knows that he'll only slow her down and get in her way and that she's too good for him. Hence the lyrics "I'll get away from you
    Wait and I'll be begging
    I'll get away from you
    I'll pull you down
    I'll pull you down"

    My InterpretationThis is My Favorite Finger Eleven song and my 2nd favorite song of all time.
    I relate 100% to this song and i feel its about looking back on the past and on all your dreams of living happily but knowing your destined for hurt, pain, and sorrow. You're scared to let others in cause you don't want to drag them down with you but in the end your too scared to be alone and you'll always beg them back. Only to wish your dreams were reality where everything is simple but you know you always wake up.

    General CommentI don't know who he's talking about escaping from, but it brings back memories I can't remember, and that I can only remember the impressions of. Somebody once trapped me like that. Maybe they still are. Fuck em all to hell.
