I need to wake up soon
So very soon
Into the light zone
Into the light
I`m falling forwards
And into sight
And running backwards
And falling down

They cheer they cheer

Under a piercing and
Blinding light
The crowd all gather
Right on right on
But there`s no dark corner
Centre stage
The crowd gets restless
I begin to say

I don`t know if you know
I care I`m here
I`m only barely holding on
To something that is real
I`ll stand up to the noise and light
Until everything requires
I might be heard
Or else wake up
And dream

He`s so good looking
The traffic stops
He`s a politician
A heavenly cop
Words of healing
Fall from his lips
Lifting up the weak
Is in his gift

People say yeah
To the hall of office
And the foreign stage
Maybe at last
The world`s a
Better place
He`s brought down swiftly
By the
Hand of fate
The people weep
And the thought remains

When you fight for every breath
Do you stop to think about your friends or do you
That in that moment separating life and death
You want to take what you can get
And maybe
Only wake up
But not

    General CommentThis, and many others, should be under "Ricky Ross" - not Deacon Blue

    Anyway, the first part of the song is about the time immediately following the death of his father, the rest (from the politician reference onwards) is about the late Sir John Smith (Labour)
