Wake Up

(John Cog)
September 6, 2010

      A couple lay together at the end of an evening and a long-term relationship.Warm pillow talk turns cool. Realizing there's no feeling left, someone says, "It's my fault." Gentleness can hurt.
        Mm-hm, la da da da da,
        It ain't no love lullaby.

        Darlin', wake up. I can hear you cry,
        And when I whisper, "Why?" You don't know.

        Hey now, wake up. Unlock your sleepy eyes,
        We'll watch the moon rise, side by side.

        Well, it's just another night of questions and lies,
        And wicked words unsaid,
        So hard, they're doing time,
        Inside your head. Why don't you...

        Wake up. When will we make this right?
        Don't you hide your lines in spite of yourself. My darlin' come on now

        Get dressed. Let's end it. We gave it our best.
        Now give our love a little rest, tonight...

        Well it's just you and me, on our way out,
        Ain't no doubt about it.
        Don't you know it? Can't you see?
        You've got to get yourself free...

        Mm-hm, la da da da da,
        It ain't no love lullaby.

        Now it's just you and me, on our way out,
        Oh, there's no doubt about it.
        Don't you know it? Why can't you see?
        You've got to get yourself free...

        ...from me. Can't you see? Unlock your sleepy eyes,
        We'll watch the moon rise, no goodbyes.

        Hey now, wake up. I can hear you cry,
        And when I whisper, "Why?" you don't know.

        Darlin', wake up. When will we make this right?
