Verse:
I miss your soft lips. I miss your white sheets.
I miss the scratch of your unshaved face on my cheek.
And this is so hard cause I didn't see
That you were the love of my life and it kills me.
I see your face in strangers on the street.
I still say your name when I'm talking in my sleep.
And in the limelight, I play it all fine.
But I can't handle it when I turn off my night light.
[Ah]
But I can't handle it when I turn off my night light.
[Ah]

Chorus:
They say that true love hurts, well this could almost kill me.
Young love murdered, that is what this must be.
I would give it all to not be sleeping alone, alone.

The life is fading from me while you watch my heart bleed.
Young love murdered, that is what this must be.
I would give it all to not be sleeping alone, alone.

Verse:
Remember the time we jumped the fence when
The Stones were playing and we were too broke to get in.
You held my hand and they made me cry while
I swore to God it was the best night of my life.
Or when you took me across the world, we
Promised that this will last forever but now I see.

It was my past life, a beautiful time
Drunk off of nothing but each other till the sun rised.
[Ah]
Drunk off of nothing but each other till the sun rised.

Chorus:
They say that true love hurts, well this could almost kill me.
Young love murdered, that is what this must be.
I would give it all to not be sleeping alone, alone.

The life is fading from me while you watch my heart bleed.
Young love murdered, that is what this must be.
I would give it all to not be sleeping alone, alone.

Bridge:
It was a past (it was a past life) life, a beautiful time.
Drunk off of nothing but each other till the sun rised. [Till the sun rised.]

Chorus:
They say that true love hurts, well this could almost kill me.
Young love murdered, that is what this must be.
I would give it all to not be sleeping alone, alone.

The life is fading from me while you watch my heart bleed.
Young love murdered, that is what this must be.
I would give it all to not be sleeping alone, alone.

    I love this song. Made me cry wild. I hope this WOULD BE the next single after her 2nd single Blow. I really really like this, Ke$ha. You should read this.

    In this song kesha was so blinded by her love for this guy that she didn't see the breakup coming. And when her heart broke she loved him even more than before. In the song she's reliving her memories with the guy and missing him with each passing second. She's saying that she's not the same as she was before and it's his fault.

    I think this means that she's sad that her boyfriend left,and she hopes that he comes home. She really loves him.
    "young love murdered,that is what this must be. "
    "i would give it all not to be sleeping alone. "

    And she reflects on their past,and knows it's not coming back.
    "remember when we jumped the fence"
    "that was my past life,a beautiful time. "

    A girl is sitting in her bed and she is thinking about how much she misses her boyfriend... it breaks her heart and every time she falls asleep she sees him. When people ask she says shes fine but once she is in the comfort of darkness she cries herself to sleep. She feels like her heart is being stabbed ripped from her chest and torn in two. She starts dreaming about all the things they used to do and how happy she was with him. She remembers his promise but it doesn't hold true anymore. She sees his face as she cries herself to sleep and is worried if he feels the same way or if he is enjoying watching her fall apart.
