Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

Amerikaanse hardrockgroep opgericht in 1970 in Boston, Massachusetts: Steven Tyler (geb. als Steven Tallarico op 26-03-1948; zang), Joe Perry (geb. 10-09-1950; gitaar), Brad Whitford (geb. 23-02-1952; gitaar), Tom Hamilton (geb. 31-12-1951; basgitaar) en Joey Kramer (geb. 21-06-1950; drums).

Perry verlaat de groep in 1979 om met de Joe Perry Project voor zichzelf te beginnen. Jimmy Crespo vervangt hem. Whitford houdt het voor gezien in 1981 en richt met ex Ted Nugent-vocalist Derek St. Holmes Whitford/St. Holmes op. Perry en Whitford keren terug bij hun oude makkers in 1985.

De rapcrew Run-D.M.C. steekt Aerosmiths Walk This Way in 1986 in een nieuw jasje. Tyler en Perry leveren de vocale en gitaristische bijdragen.

Tylers dochter is actrice Liv Tyler, bekend van rollen in films als Stealing Beauty (1996), Armageddon (1998), Jersey Girl (2004) en de Lord of the Rings-trilogie.


Songtekst

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,
When every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure,

(Chorus)
I don't wanna close my eyes,
I don't wanna fall asleep,
Cause I'd miss you babe,
And I don't wanna miss a thing,
Cause even when I dream of you,
The sweetest dream would never do,
I'd still miss you babe,
And I don't wanna miss a thing.

Lying close to you,
feeling your heart beating,
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming,
Wondering if it's me you're seeing,
And then I kiss your eyes,
And thank God we're together,
I just wanna stay with you in this moment forever,
Forever and ever.

(Chorus)

And I don't wanna miss one smile,
I don't wanna miss one kiss,
I just wanna be with you,
Right here with you, just like this,
Well I just wanna hold you close,
And feel your heart so close to mine,
And just stay here in this moment,
For all the rest of time
Yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah

(Chorus repeated 2 times)

Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna fall asleep, yeah
I don't wanna miss a thing
