All my friends tell me I should move on
I'm lying in the ocean, singing your song
Ahhh, that's how you sing it
Loving you forever, can't be wrong
Even though you're not here, won't move on
Ahhh, that's how we play it

And there's no remedy for memory,
Your face is like a melody,
It won't leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side

All my friends ask me why I stay strong
Tell 'em when you find true love it lives on
Ahhh, that's why I stay here

And there's no remedy for memory,
Your face is like a melody,
It won't leave my head
Your soul is haunting me and telling me
That everything is fine
But I wish I was dead

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
But that there's no you
Except in my dreams tonight

Oh oh oh, ah ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight
Oh oh oh, ah ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight

There's no relief, I see you in my sleep
And everybody's rushing me, but I can feel you touching me
There's no release, I feel you in my dreams
Telling me I'm fine

Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side
Everytime I close my eyes
It's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
But that there's no you
Except in my dreams tonight

Oh oh oh, ah ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight
Oh oh oh, ah ha ha ha
I don't wanna wake up from this tonight

    She lost her love and she dreams about him and misses him. Her friends tell her to stop be sad and move on with her life. But, she doesn't want to. She wants to die in order of seeing him agains. She fears one day when she grows old and dies her love will forget about her and won't be waiting for her on the other side.

    She's not sure about the existence of "the other side", but still wishes to be dead so she will find out about life after dead, only to see her friend again. Now she only has her memories and dreams about him and she embraces 'm.
    Who is truely aware about afterlife will love this song anyway !!
    'Cause the one who knows, is no believer.
    The one who believes, is not a knower.
    Those who speak, don't know.
    Those who know, don't speak.......

    The love of her life has died and she wants to join him. Partly out of fear that she will move on and he won't be there when she dies too. She has dreams of him and won't give up on him.
