lyrics

wake up
jonny burke (dedpan music, bmi)

when you feel the darkness and you're tumbling towards the sea, wake up
have you fooled the monsters into falling from the trees? wake up
in your evening gown, in all your sins and sensibility
when you leave this town i hope you know i want you next to me

in the blackened nightfall and the hardships and the schemes, wake up
if the fall goes any faster you're a bastard by the spring, wake up
when i spun you out there on the dancefloor, monsieur and my cherie
you took me down, looking up you're all i can see

chorus
my love my love i'd give all of my love to you
my love my love i'd give all of my love to you
my love my love i'd give all of my love to you
my love my love i'd give all of my love to you
i give it all to you

with our hearts all made of alloy put the steel back in the beams, wake up
flip the switch on this machine until we all hear freedom ring, wake up
turn the sound up loud, ten thousand years and we still can't hear
it's the same sad crowd, i try to listen i got cotten all up in my ears

chorus

i hope you leave the light on to the ones you've never seen and wake up
how can we see the beauty if we're livin in a dream? wake up
you let me down, i always knew the possibility
when you leave this town, i hope you know just what you did to me

chorus
