    General CommentThis is one of the only SP songs i dont like. I think it is a bad ending to a great album. They should have pulled another ballad out of the hat to end.

    General CommentI really like this song...my sister and I were listening to this song, and she asked me do u like this song and is aid yes shes like its mostly about sex haha but it could be interpeted in a different pointe of view instead of that just staying up and talking all night, they dont get much sleep, idk, i guess many interpetatins may work, but no ones done that to this song so i guessed i would hah thats just my veiw, but its not what its talknig about really and thats strange for me, i normally am wya into the lyrics, but this song his voice and the musioc flow sososososos wel and idk its justy so simple and perfect

    General CommentI think this is such a sexual song, but it's not just about sex. It seems to me that they're just kinda hanging out, probably naked, by the fire, and he's realizing how simple and beautiful the moment is. So he wants it to go on forever.

    Been there.

    General CommentI actually think this song is really gorgeous. I like when the guitars and piano kick in and the repeated line, "we won't get much sleep". Beautiful.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of the book the hero and the crown. there's a part towards the end of the book (i haven't read it in forever) when the main character is going home with her guide (?) and they are camping. and at night, they are sitting by the fire and they end up getting romantically involved. and i'm almost sure its says something like "they didn't get much sleep that night" or along those lines. but the first time i heard this song, i was immediately reminded of that book.
