I can't sleep, I'm feeling wide awake
Tonight is taking it's time
How much more before the morning breaks
And I can leave it all behind
'Cause every time I try to close my eyes
I only end up seeing memories of you
And it's never enough, I'm waiting

Even though you're gone I can hear your heart
It's calling out my name like a flash in the dark
If this is just a dream
I won't give it back
I'll find a way to make it last
One more minute, wait, wait, wait, don't go
Just one more minute, wait, wait, wait, don't go

I am keeping every word you say
But how much longer can I hold on
Cause whispers echoing until they fade
Remind me that you're already gone
'Cause every time I try to chase your voice
I end up getting lost and running in circles
And it's never enough, I'm waiting

Even though you're gone I can hear your heart
It's calling out my name like a flash in the dark
If this is just a dream
I won't give it back
I'll find a way to make it last
One more minute wait, wait, wait, don't go
Just one more minute, wait, wait, wait, don't go
Wait, wait, wait, don't go
Just one more minute, wait, wait, wait, don't go
Oooh yeah, don't go

Even though you're gone I can hear your heart
It's calling out my name like a flash in the dark
If this is just a dream
I won't give it back
I'll find a way to make it last
One more minute, wait, wait, wait, don't go
Just one more minute, wait, wait, wait, don't go

    This is a very beautiful yet heartbreaking song, and it proves david's undeniably great talent.
    The singer is someone who used to be in love, but his love interest died or moved away permanently, so the singer misses her and can't get over it. He has dreams about seeing her again and he keeps getting flashbacks about their beautiful times together. He wants to make it last, and he is begging inside for these memories (or dreams) to stay forever, or at least just one more minute.
    I don't think it's about a break up, because david doesn't say "come back to me", "i want you back", etc. Or make a reference to the fact that she's moved on, like he did in a little too not over you. He doesn't even show any signs of wanting to move on, so i'm guessing what happened wasn't either his or the girl's, decision. Maybe it was a tragedy he can't change, so he asks every little piece he still remembers about her to never leave him.
