V1
I went to bed I was thinking about you
Aint the same since I'm living without you
All the memories are getting colder
All the things that I wanna do over

Went to bed I was thinking about you
I wanna talk and laugh like we used to
When I see you in my dreams at night
It's so real but it's in my mind

Pre
And now
I guess
This is as good as it gets

Chorus:
Don't wake me
Cause I don't wanna leave this dream
Don't wake me
Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough
When it's you I'm dreaming of
I don't wanna wake up

Don't wake me
Were together just you and me
Don't wake me
Cause were happy like we used to be
I know I've gotta let you go
But don't wake me

V2
I went to bed I was thinking about you
And how it felt when I finally found you
It's like a movie playing over in my head
Don't wanna look cause I know how it ends
All the words that I said that I wouldn't say
All the promises I made that I wouldn't break
It's last call, last song, last dance
Cause I can't get you back, can't get a second chance

And now, I guess
This is as good as it gets

    I think that the guy just couldn't get over the person he loves. He was thinking her her much that he keep dreaming about her so he don't wish anyone to wake him cause he just wanna see her.

    Love this song!!!

    He loved her so much but he messed up big time. And now he wants her back but he used his second chance. He can't get over her. He dreams how he was feeling while he was with her. So advice from me:
    If you are fighting and the fight is getting out of control just stop and think of this song. Hug him really hard to understand that you love him so much and you don"t want to fight any more.
    Just enjoy the love you both share. Peace
