Don’t Sleep - Kelley Bligh

don’t sleep
Kelley Bligh
I don’t want to sleep
Just to buy more time
With you
Before our days
And our past
Becomes completely obsolete
Stay up all night
With me
Just you and me
Don’t sleep
And I won’t even blink
Don’t dare let these moments
Fade away in the dark
Unacknowledged in our unconscious
Kiss me with your eyes open
Don’t close them for one second
I’ll stay awake all night
I’ll stay awake every night
Just to steal more time with you
