You came to me
In seemless sleep and slipped right in
Behind my eyes on the back of my mind
We swam a sea of pretty sights and chandelier skies
I swore I could feel you breathe
It was all so real to me

The light had slipped through the window
The morning ripped you away (oooh)
Don't wake me up
I am still dreaming the story's undone
Unravel at the seams
Don't wake me up
Death is misleading and when I fall asleep
Sleep with a ghost

I moved in the dark
The room cold and calm
The quiet hollow
I am such a haunted soul
Your ghost is gone the bed is so cold

The light had slipped through the window
The morning ripped you away (oooh)
Don't wake me up
I am still dreaming the story's undone
Unravel at the seams
Don't wake me up
Death is misleading and when I fall asleep
Sleep with a ghost

Oh you were a fire caught in a storm
Memories like embers keep us warm
You will leave me in the morning
Leave Me

The light it slipped through the window
The morning ripped you away (oooh)

The light it slipped through the window
The morning ripped you away (oooh)

The light it slipped through the window
The morning ripped you away (oooh)

    I think this song is about the girl's boyfriend dying and he comes to visit her in her sleep but he can only come at night and when morning arrives he has to leave, but she doesn't want to be haunted and she doesn't want him to wake her up. It's so sad and beautiful but at the same time it's catchy, Greta has such a pure voice

    Every night for a week now I've had a continuing dream of a girl. I believe this girl is real, and song connects me to her. I know nothing more of her than her first name and her face. I will find her one day.
