“What I’m Thinking While the World Is Asleep”

So now here I lie, fighting sleep tonight
I’ll kiss your forehead one more time
Everything is great, and everything feels right
I just don’t want to say goodbye
And leave you here, leave the warmth of your bed
Just to be alone with the thoughts in my head
I’d rather just lie here and watch you sleep
With every breath you take, you take my breath away

And I don’t wanna go home tonight
I just wanna lie here
With you in my arms (Holding you all night long)
And I just wanna wait til sunlight
It pours through your window
And lights up your beautiful face (But when morning comes, I will be gone)

Face it.  It’s not that my room
Is that much colder than yours is
It just feels that way
Without the warmth of your body pressed against mine
So I’ll lie here, all alone
Missing you more than ever
Hugging my pillow and trying to sleep
So I can dream of you forever

I don’t wanna go home tonight
I just wanna lie here
With you in my arms (Holding you all night long)
And I just wanna wait til sunlight
It pours through your window
And lights up your beautiful face (But when morning comes, I will be gone)

One day
It won’t have to be
This way
And one day
We can say
We can stay
One day (All through the night)
It won’t have to be (I’ll hold you tight)
This way (We’ll be alright)
And one day (And at the end of the night)
We can say (We won’t say goodbye)
We can stay (We’ll just say goodnight)

So come walk me out to my car
I’ll open the door and let you in
Leaning across the center console
Embracing you one more time
I’ll kiss your hands, and you’ll kiss my fingertips
I’ll kiss your lips
Looking into your beautiful eyes
I’ll tell you I love you and say goodbye
Pull up to your room, let you out of the car
Watching you as you walk away
Desperately hoping that you’ll turn your head
So I can see your face one more time
