Wake Me Up

Wake me up when it’s over,

Wake me up when it’s done,

When he’s gone away and taken everything,

Wake me up.

Wake me up when the skies are clearing,

When the water is still,

’cause I will not watch the ships sail away so,

Please say you will.

If it were any other day,

This wouldn’t get the best of me.

But today I’m not so strong,

So lay me down with a sad song,

And when it stops then you know I’ve been,

Gone too long.

But don’t shake me awake,

Don’t bend me or I will break,

Come find me somewhere between my dreams,

With the sun on my face.

I will still feel it later on,

But for now I’d rather be asleep.

[norah jones]

it’s a sad song but it makes me happy. perhaps because i’m glad i can’t relate to it except for the part about being an escapist. doms, jo, thanks for the addition to my mp3 collection. benj, thank you for continuing to make me smile. ^_^
