Song Lyric Sunday – Stay Awake by All Time Low

This one lyric has been running through my head all night – “Dreams only last for a night”. I knew the band was All Time Low, but I couldn’t remember exactly which song it was. I’m happy it was an easy Google search to find the perfect song for me today.

There are plenty of songs to choose from for this theme, but I just had to post this one. It speaks to me about life and not giving up, no matter how hard things can be. I’m stuck in a place like that right now, but I am determined not give up.

Besides, All Time Low is just a great Sunday band. They’re upbeat, they have great lyrics, and I’m just in love with them.

I do hope you enjoy!

Caught in a cold sweat stuck splitting hairs
I’m drinking too much
I’m on my way to striking out
Go to sleep with the pressure of everyone
Watching, waiting, they’re yours for the taking
But I still have my doubts
Before you ask which way to go
Remember where you’ve been
Stay awake, get a grip and get out
You’re safe from the weight of the world
Just take a second to set things straight
I’ll be fine even though I’m not always right
I can count on the sun to shine
Dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night
Figure it out boy, you’re tripping
So pull yourself together
Or you’ll wash up like the rest
This ship is sinking, I’m thinking I’m done for
I watch as the sails disappear underwater
‘Cause I’m no captain yet
I said, “Before you ask which way to go
Remember where you’ve been”
Stay awake, get a grip and get out
You’re safe from the weight of the world
Just take a second to set things straight
I’ll be fine, even though I’m not always right
I can count on the sun to shine
Dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night
Believe you me, I’ll give them everything
I’d tell them anything to show them everything
Believe you me, I’ll give them everything
I’d tell them anything to show them everything
‘Cause you ain’t the only ones who wanna live it up
You ain’t the only ones
You ain’t the only ones who wanna live it up
You ain’t the only ones
You ain’t the only ones who wanna live it up
You ain’t the only ones
You ain’t the only ones who wanna live it up
You ain’t the only ones
Stay awake, get a grip and get out
You’re safe from the weight of the world
Just take a second to set things straight
I’ll be fine, even though I’m not always right
I can count on the sun to shine
Dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night

  2. Alex Gaskarth said that this song is supposed to be a conversation between Wendy and Peter in Peter Pan. But when he was writing it, it actually kind of also turned into a conversation that he had with himself before. Like more adult sensible arguing with his childish side that wants to do other things and do things differently.
