i don’t want to miss a thing lyrics – mark chesnutt

(originally by aerosmith)

i could stay awake just to hear you breathing
watch you smile while you are sleeping
while you’re far away and dreaming
i could spend my life in this sweet surrender
i could stay lost in this moment forever
where every moment spent with you
is a moment i treasure

i don’t wanna close my eyes
i don’t wanna fall asleep
’cause i’d miss you
and i don’t wanna miss a thing
’cause even when i dream of you
the sweetest dream will never do
i’d still miss you
and i don’t wanna miss a thing

lying close to you, feeling your heart beating
and i’m wondering what your dreaming
wondering if it’s me your seeing
and then i kiss your eyes, and thank god we’re together
i just wanna stay with you
in this moment forever

i don’t wanna close my eyes
i don’t wanna fall asleep
’cause i’d miss you
and i don’t wanna miss a thing
’cause even when i dream of you
the sweetest dream will never do
i’d still miss you
and i don’t wanna miss a thing

i don’t wanna miss one smile
i don’t wanna miss one kiss
well, i just wanna be with you, right here with you
just like this
i just wanna hold you close
feel your heart so close to mine
and just stay here in this moment
for all the rest of time

i don’t wanna close my eyes
i don’t wanna fall asleep
’cause i’d miss you
and i don’t wanna miss a thing
’cause even when i dream of you
the sweetest dream will never do
i’d still miss you
and i don’t wanna miss a thing
