BLUES TRAVELER lyrics : "Once You Wake Up"

And what about the times
Now I'm grabbing out at breaking glass
An attempt to find a memory

That makes it seem glorious or at least okay

But all I have is me

In a razor caught off guard as you brush by
The alarm wakes me out of bed
And the dream I was just having simply fades away


And blindly do I see
At the sunlight I am freezing

And as I start to come around
I want to fall back to the ground
Roll over and make sense again


But its too late I am awake
And its sensation I can't fake

As I try my best to pretend

But once you wake up

You just can't fall back asleep anymore
I know it isn't fair
But once you're aware

You can back track all you want
You can mourn for whats gone
But you're up either way

You better deal with your day

I remember I was tired

In fact I still have some sleep in my eyes
So I got all warm and safe and numb
Figured I would lie down and rest a while

Next thing came the morning
And you're shaking me and telling me to rise
And I would tell you anything

To stall and make you think or smile or cry
You see all I need is you
And then I start to understand what love does

Now there's so much that I can give
And I finally want to live
You know before I just didn't really ever care

And I'll do more than hold on
I want to celebrate the dawn
I don't ever want to go back to sleep I swear


But once you wake up
You can't just fall back to sleep anymore

I know it isn't fair
But once you're aware
You can backtrack all you want

You can mourn for whats gone
But you're up either way
You better deal with your day
