Back to the lyrics overview

Wake me up before I sleep and I’ll promise that I’ll concentrate
On only the last frame
Cover only one sound
Some kinda sweet, weird kinda strange around me
Wake me up before I sleep can’t you see too many colours here,
colours there
colours everywhere
cover only one ground
the blackest of blacks I don’t want to surround me

There’s nothing I can say, that isn’t gonna be
there’s nothing I can do, that isn’t gonna be a mistake

Wake me up before I sleep, I haven’t had an inch of what
I thought I got
from this awful high
cover me in one dye
just lie here with me we’ll let the train go by

There’s nothing I can say, that isn’t gonna be
There’s nothing in my way, I know it’s gonna be a mistake
