Written by Martyn Joseph MCPS/PRS

lyrics

I’ve seen a lot and a lot I’ve seen
Hope I never stop dreaming if you know what I mean
Sometimes it all ends in disarray
Sometimes I feel myself slipping away

Chorus
My soul’s asleep now, wake me up
My body’s fading, wake me up
My soul’s asleep, come on and wake me up

Baby it’s subtle and it does it well
I just walk on through underneath that spell
Flashing lights and jamboree
Baby the world drains the life out of me

Repeat Chorus

On these streets I’m blind
Though the road is signed
I gotta look behind to find my way

This could be the matinee
The remains of the day
I try to stay awake but I’m slipping away

Repeat Chorus

I’ve seen a lot and a lot I’ve seen
Sometimes I fall through the gaps in between
And then world it begins to sway
Pretty soon I can feel myself slipping away
Wake me up
