Why do false awakenings happen?

I had a pretty short lucid dream last night where one of the dream characters wanted to fight me. As soon as I knocked him out I instantly woke into a new dream but never noticed I was dreaming. It ended my lucidity.

I wonder if a false awakening after a lucid dream is the subconscious mind trying to push me out of the lucid dream and into a non-lucid dream. Any thoughts on this?

I don't know "why" it happens, but you just lost awareness. It's easy for that to happen.
