Dearly beloved
If this love only exists in my dreams
Don't wake me up

Too much light in this window,
Don't wake me up,
Only coffee no sugar inside my cup,
If I wake and you're here still, gimme a kiss,
I wasn't finished dreamin' about your lips

Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me up, yeah
Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me

So much life in the city you won't believe,
Been awake for some days now, no time to sleep,
If your heart is a pillow, this love's the bed,
Tell me what is the music inside my head

Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me up, yeah
Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me

I don't wanna fall, fall, fall, fall asleep no,
I don't wanna fall unless I'm falling for you
I don't wanna fall, fall, fall, fall asleep no,
I don't wanna fall unless I'm falling for you

Don't wake me up
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me up, yeah
Don't wake me up, up, up, up, up, up
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me
