Riff: Chris Brown – “Don’t Wake Me Up”

Oct 10, 2012

Dear beloved/ If this love will exist in my dreams/ Don’t wake me up

from Don't Wake Me Up lyrics by Chris Brown

A rare occasion when Brown isn’t bleating on about how misunderstood and victimized he is, “Don’t Wake Me Up” sees the poster boy for inexplicably misjudged neck tattoos reveal his romantic side amidst so many hideous layers of AutoTune that even Lil Wayne and T-Pain might describe it as a bit much.
