- Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Lyrics
Here's the complete lyrics to the song
I could stay awake
Just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment I spend with you
Is a moment I treasure
Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
Cause I'd miss ya babe
And I don't want to miss a thing
Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream would never do
I'd still miss ya baby
And I don't want to miss a thing
I lay close to you
Feeling your heart beating
And I wonder what you are dreaming
Wonder if it's me you are seeing
Then I kiss your eyes
And thank God we're together
I just want to stay with you
In this moment forever and ever and ever
I don't want to miss a smile
I don't want to miss a kiss
I just want to be with you, here with you
Just 1 kiss
I just want to hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And stay with this moment
For the rest of time
Yeah, yeah, yeaaaaaaaaaaah!
