With my eyes wide open
And with words unspoken
I still understand

And I'm reading your mind
Using every outline
You're drawing in my hand

Feel your fingers
I'm in way too deep

(Chorus)
To wake up
Step out
'Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
You know what I mean I
Can't find
Any reason I would ever want to turn back now
Once you spelled it out

Oh, when I first met you
There were things I'd been through
That I would never tell

But it was almost as if
You already knew my language
'Cause you'd been there yourself

I'm still falling
Don't make me return

(Chorus)
And wake up
Step out
'Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
You know what I mean I
Can't find
Any reason I would ever want to turn back now
Once you spelled it out

I know it's not an accident
I can feel it crashing in
And I'm not pushing back

Come on, we can leave the world behind
Close the curtains, shut out the light
Just state the good
Don't let me go
Don't tell me I should

(Chorus)
Wake up
Step out
'Cause I'm really getting used to being in this dream
You know what I mean I
Can't find
Any reason I would ever want to turn back now
Once you spelled it out

Once you spelled it out
Once you spelled it out

    The song is about him falling for someone who understands him and saying that he doesn't want to step out, wake up, or turn away from the love that the person has "spelled out. " i think he has found a love that makes him understand more about himself.

    Gavin has found someone who he can relate to, someone who loves him for him and will not judge him. He is deeply in love and brody should ask me out already. Did i do something wrong? He's just so shy... Im afraid i did something to make him no longer like me even though we hugged on friday...
