Aerosmith - I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Lyrics Meaning

Aerosmith is a legendary rock band from the 1970s; the band is from Boston, MA and is probably rock 'n roll's greatest band of all time. Steven Tyler is the band's lead vocals and he's been a judge on the popular talent show American Idol.

'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' was a hot single during its time and was a gold piece for Aerosmith. The movie Armageddon had an attribute to the song and it was based on a love story. The music video is a highlight of its love scenes. Without a doubt, the song is about love.

The song describes a love that should never be missed. And as the song title suggests, the person that longs for another, doesn't want to miss anything. The lyrics state that the person who doesn't want to miss a thing, is in a dream state or doesn't want to fall asleep, because if he/she did, that person would miss him/her and wouldn't be really around them. "Don't want to close my eyes. I don't want to fall asleep. Cause I'd miss you babe. And I don't want to miss a thing." This song was the greatest love song of the '90s, and it is one of Aerosmith's best songs to date.
