"Wide Awake" as written by and Waymon/cruz Boone....
Does anybody hear?
I'm sorry that I'm late
I hate to keep you waiting

I try to get it right
But all I get is wrong
My memories are fading long

(Chorus)
I'm waking up
I'm waking up
I wanna live myself to the bitter top
I'm waking up
I'm waking up
I wanna spin my wheels till I make it stop
I'm waking up
I'm waking up
I wanna build my ship till I've had enough
I'm waking up
I'm waking up
I wanna dive myself into this water

I'm sorry that I'm late
It happens all the time
And if you walked away
You know you'd do better

I try to get it right
But all I get is wrong
My memories are fading long

Chorus

As long as I am wide awake
As long as I am wide awake
As long as I am wide awake
As long as I am wide awake

And I left my pieces everywhere
And I sat my arse down on this chair
Come and stare
I?ll be here
As long as I'm alive

Chorus

As long as I am wide awake (I?m waking up)
As long as I am wide awake (I?m waking up)
As long as I am wide awake (I?m waking up)
As long as I am wide awake

Is anybody here?
I'm sorry that I'm late
I have to go

    General CommentThis song is so good! This song is the second to last one on To Whom It May Concern. This song is SO atmospheric and emotional when he sings the "As long as I am wide awake" part - it just takes you away. I think this song is about being thankful that you are able to wake up everyday and be alive. Sounds like someone who is in good health and has a good job and who is thankful for what they have.
