Song: No One Sleeps When I'm Awake

No one sleeps when we're awake either. We don't think it's for the same reasons though. Usually with us it's due to our music, or laughter, or a late night bottle of Rose, or pit stop to Village Pizza on the trek back from Montauk. But don't even think about pulling the sleep card in our presence. Because we don't care what hour it is - no one sleeps when we're awake. But not intentionally... we promise.

LYRICS:

I've seen people losing all of their faith before they knew what they were looking for I swore I'd never ever do it again till this day

Words are all I have to give to you you never seem to see it my way Standing in the shadows I hear people say

(Bridge) I've got confessions to make listen up no one sleeps when I'm awake

(Chorus) The dreams I dream the song I sing for you they're coming from my heart is my message getting through? You know it hurts so bad just like i knew that it would but I'd do it again do it again if I could do it again if I could.

I don't think you know what it's like you should be careful what you're wishing for and try to set your ego aside you will find a false piece of mind you fall behind and everybody's getting tired of you standing in the shadows i hear people say

(Bridge) I've got confessions to make listen up no one sleeps when i'm awake

(Chorus) The dreams I dream the song I sing for you and they're coming from my heart is my message getting through? You know it hurts so bad just like i knew that it would but I'd do it again do it again if I could

Hey heeey heeey i want you to know (know know know...) hey hey heeeeeeeeeeeeey heeeeeeey

Cause the dreams that i dream and the songs that i sing when I lost myself and a different meaning Shot down and post, imagine although it's hundreds of dreams Taking place around you

(Chorus) It hurts so bad just like I knew that it would but I'd do it again, I'd do it again if i could. but I'd do it again, I'd do it again if I could.

I'd do it again I'd do it again I'd do it again I'd do it again if I could!
