Jonas Blue & Why Don’t We – “Don’t Wake Me Up”
“Sunkissed, my face wishing for the real thing. Lonely and outta place when I don’t have you with me. Does your heart say the same on all these nights alone? Or is it just me hoping you’ll come home? ‘Cause, I don’t know if I can make you happy. No matter what the odds, I’m gonna try. A million miles away, I feel you with me. For now, our love will live inside my mind. So don’t wake me up in the middle of the night ‘cause I finally found you.” – lyrics
‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young guy who doesn’t know if he can make his significant other happy. Apparently, he wants to make their relationship work and desires to embrace his partner once again in the near future. Furthermore, he feels his partner’s warm love every time he closes his eyes to sleep. Therefore, he tells his partner, “A million miles away, I feel you with me. For now, our love will live inside my mind.”
“Don’t wake me up in the middle of the night ‘cause I finally found you.”
“I’ve been wanting to get a collab going with Why Don’t We since they first hit me up on Twitter back in 2019. These guys have amazing vocals which grabbed me instantly, so I knew we could create something really special together. ‘Don’t Wake Me Up’ has a real depth to the lyrics. If you break it down, it’s about finding your true love in your dream. I can’t wait to share it with the world.” – Jonas Blue explained

Why Don’t We
“This song started with a late-night call from a good friend of mine, Lukas Costas, asking if I’d be down to come over and record scratch vocals on a piano ballad he just wrote. After we finished vocals, I showed my bandmates the demo and they loved it. That’s when we got in touch with Jonas. He loved the potential the song had and before we knew it, we had received the first draft of what would become a pop dance banger. Enjoy ‘Don’t Wake Me Up!’” – (Why Don’t We’s) Corbyn Besson stated
