5 Seconds Of Summer – Beside You lyrics

[Verse 1]
Within a minute I was all packed up,
I've got a ticket to another world.
I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go.
Silent words are hard to speak
When your thoughts are all I see.
Don't ever leave, she said to me
.

[Pre-Chorus]
When we both fall asleep
Underneath the same sky,
To the beat of our hearts
At the same time,
So close but so far away,
Can you hear me
?

[Chorus]
She sleeps alone.
My heart wants to come home.
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you
.
She lies awake,
I'm trying to find the words to say.
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you.

[Verse 2]
Another day, and I'm somewhere new,
I made a promise that I'd come home soon.
Bring me back, bring me back to you
.

[Pre-Chorus]
When we both wake up
Underneath the same sun, time stops,
I wish that I could rewind,
So close but so far away.

[Chorus]
She sleeps alone.
My heart wants to come home.
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you.
She lies awake,
I'm trying to find the words to say.
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you.

[Bridge]
There are pieces of us both
Under every city light,
And they're shining as we
Fade into the night.

[Hook]
She sleeps alone.
My heart wants to come home.
I wish I was, I wish I was

[Chorus]
She sleeps alone.
My heart wants to come home.
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you.
She lies awake,
I'm trying to find the words to say.
I wish I was, I wish I was
Beside you.

[Outro]
She sleeps alone.
My heart wants to come home.
I wish I was, I wish I was

    Beside you about how a guy feels when he leaves his girlfriend home. He living his dreams but really he wants to right beside her and they sleep alone. Either they are really close and happy because he says his heart wants to come home and he isn't home until he's beside her. As he's traveling the world he's like I don't wanna be here I wanna be home beside you and I made a promise to you that I'l be some soon. He's at the airport speechless trying to come up with words to express how he feels.

    Beside you is a song about a couple and when the boy leaves all he can think about is how much he misses her so all she wants to do is be near her he talks about is how much he misses her and he wants to be beside her so she don't have to sleep alone they have made a lot of memories where they live so he knows he will never forget about her and all the thing they said like just before he left he was talking about how he didn't want to go and when he hears her say don't ever leave me he talked about how they wake up underneath the same sun and the same moon but they are still so far away.
