Of Mice & Men – When You Can’t Sleep At Night lyrics
Here in this world I'm awaked with mistakes
But it's love that keeps fueling me, fueling me
Pretty little lady
With swollen eyes, would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect, but just stay a while
Baby, then you will see

Miles away
I can still feel you lay your head down on my embrace, my embrace
Far away

Pretty little lady
With swollen eyes would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect, but just stay a while
Baby, then you will see

Don't give up, baby
I know that it's shaky, just let love consume us, 'sume us.

Here in this world I'm awaked with mistakes
But it's love that keeps fueling me
Fueling me to love you

Miles away
I can still feel you lay your head down on my embrace
Be not afraid to love me

Pretty little lady
With swollen eyes, would you show them to me?
I know I'm not that perfect, but just stay a while
Baby, then you will see

    I believe it's part of a distance thing, he's away and they both find it hard but it's the love that keeps him going. You can feel the love in his words and in his voice. It's so beautiful. So perfect.
    This song is my favourite song and I want to scream it to the world but I want to keep it my secret so that no-one else can ruin it for me.

    That this world is full of mistakes made by us but through those mistakes we keep loving and we've made the ones we love cry but we still have feelings for them and think about them before we go to bed and although we've commited mistakes in the relationship we shouldn't give up on what we have and just feel the love and go along with it and keep on loving one another and we shouldn't be afraid to love.

    The song I believe is about his girlfriend (Shay's.) Along with his addiction, etc. He's girlfriend was hurt, and scared but she stayed with him. He went through drug addiction and depression, hell I'd be scared for the guy I love myself. If he went through all off this and I can't help. Hey, love is infinite and can overcome anything.

    What I think that the song means is wharever you are feeling when you are listening to it. It's somerhiing that anybody can relate to. What I felt that it meant like to me was that he is in love with a girl and he is her best friend and he telling her that everything will be okay. Like it says in the song, pretty little lady with your swollen eyes won't you show them to me? Ican relate to this song bacause I have had a crush on a friend who did not like me that way. But like I said b 4, it only means what you think it means.

    It's like. The girl was crying, but the boy wants her to see that everything will be ok. When he says 'miles away I can still feel you lay your head down on my embrace' I always feel like crying. Cus I rly want to hug someone that's like 2 thousand miles away from me. I like how of mice songs can fit exactly in ur situation, theres a song for evrything.

    I love this song so much. My favorite by them. For some reason this song makes me think that it is talking about two people in a long distant relationship, and they've had to few problems, and maybe he caused the most of them but he is telling her to hold on and he can show her that he can be the perfect guy for her and put what's in the past, in the past. I can relate to this song in so many ways because of the long distant relationship I am in now for about 5 months. Horrible things have happened but no matter what we find a way to fix things and be there for each other. I love you so much chris.

    I think the meaning to this song and the meaning he meant behind it was that he was telling me he loved me all alone and I was too stubborn to notice. He'd see me through all of my problems. Everything that made me want to just let go. To leave everything. Him, being too perfect to be true. How could I have known I would mean anything more to him than a friend? He was there at my worst moments when I was crying and wanting to let go, but with this song he made everything better. I had something perfect sitting beside me everyday and never realized I could and did matter anything to him until it was too late. Now he's gone, and I'm left in that empty seat wondering what it could have been like.
