Comatose Lyrics

I hate feeling like this
I'm so tired of trying to fight this
I'm asleep and all I dream of
Is waking to you

Tell me that you will listen
Your touch is what I'm missing
And the more I hide I realize
I'm slowly losing you

Comatose
I'll never wake up without an overdose of you

I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
'Less I feel you next to me
You take the pain I feel
(Waking up to you never felt so real)

I don't wanna sleep, I don't wanna dream
'Cause my dreams don't comfort me
The way you make me feel
(Waking up to you never felt so real)

I hate living without you
Dead wrong to ever doubt you
But my demons lay in waiting
Tempting me away

Oh, how I adore you
Oh, how I thirst for you
Oh, how I need you

Comatose
I'll never wake up without an overdose of you

I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
'Less I feel you next to me
You take the pain I feel
(Waking up to you never felt so real)

I don't wanna sleep, I don't wanna dream
'Cause my dreams don't comfort me
The way you make me feel
(Waking up to you never felt so real)

Breathing life, waking up
My eyes open up

Comatose
I'll never wake up without an overdose of you

I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
'Less I feel you next to me
You take the pain I feel
(Waking up to you never felt so real)

I don't wanna sleep, I don't wanna dream
'Cause my dreams don't comfort me
The way you make me feel
(Waking up to you never felt so real)

Oh, how I adore you
(Waking up to you never felt so real)
Oh, how I thirst for you
(Waking up to you never felt so real)
Oh, how I adore you
The way you make me feel
(Waking up to you never felt so real)

Unfortunally this song is one of a few that carried mixed meanings for me. Love Skillet and every song i have heard by them actually fits my life or just me almost perfectly. This one reminds me of an ex, actually the person that introduced me to skillet with Better Than Drugs. Still love em though!

My meaning to this song is actually a praying to God who he is the one who we cant skip or live without and that explains me when i get away from God it makes me want to go back to God and that he will always be here and is everywhere and about the dreams those are what i fear because what i only dream about stuff that gets me away from God . No one can love without God we all need him thirst for him because without him we are lost

Okay, i belive that this meaning, the song, is about someone who is liveing without Christ, believs, but living without him. Jinda like a hypocrite.

i think that the song is about how hard it is to get over someone or something that meant a lot to you . that you forget about the real life and end up in a comatose..
