"Wake Up" as written by Dirk Steyer and Chris Brown....
I'm not sober all the time
You bring me down at least you try
Until we see this eye to eye
I don't want you

I must be running out of luck
Cause you're just not drunk enough to fuck
And now I've had it up to here
I don't want you

It took so long to see
You walked away from me
When I need you

Wake up I'm pounding on the door
I'm not the man I was before
Where the hell are you
When I need you
Wake up I'm pounding on the door
I won't hurt you anymore
Where the hell are you
When I need you

I'm not angry all the time
You push me down, at least you try
Until we see this eye to eye
I don't want you

Wake up I'm pounding on the door
I'm not the man I was before
Where the hell are you
When I need you
Wake up I'm pounding on the door
I won't hurt you anymore
Where the hell are you
When I need you

    General CommentI totally love this song, this whole album pretty much rocks to me, and to me, is way better than One X was. This was the song that made me fall in love with 3DG, especially the first two lines in the second stanza.

    To me, this song is about a guy who used and used a girl for his own means (in other words, she's a warm body with a hole to be blunt), and didn't give a f*** about her. He'll take her when he wants her, and then cast her off when he doesn't, without a second thought. Then one day, he woke up, and she wasn't there when he wanted her, and he realizes he needs her in some twisted way. But, she had had enough of his BS, and had left him. He tries to beg and plead her to come back, telling her she's changed but she's had enough of it, and won't take him back. It's tragic really, if you think about it.

    My InterpretationOne of 3DG best songs.

    About a broken/abusive relationship.."I won't hurt you anymore"

    And how if she lets him in he'll change... Hes a changed man

    "wake up I'm pounding on the door I'm not the man I was before"

    Doesn't Have to be abusive could just be physiological "Hurt"

    General CommentThe song is about a depressed relasionship in which the guy is only in it for sex however the girl he is with is not appreciating how he treats her he begins to tell her that he does not need her because of her constant fighting and depressed state Then when she leaves him he needs her because he understands that he can't find anyone else and that she was the only girl he wants therfore in the morning and night he pounds on her door telling her he's changed and that he will now love her but she won't beleve him and the relasionship goes in circles.

    General CommentThis is about an abusive relationship and then the abuser regretting it.

    General CommentIt's obviously between two people who had a relationship that wasn't going to well so the other person left, and the dude is regretting all the mean and hurtful things he did to to that other person, thus he goes to apologize claiming he isn't "the man i was before" once he realizes that he still cares about the other person....or that's my thoughts on it.

    General CommentThe guy get's drunk. he does things to his girlfriend that he regreats when the aclcohol wears off. The girl makes him realize what he does to her, when she leaves him. he wants her back, and not just for the sex.

    General CommentThis is a good song form them. This song is about a guy who has a bad relationship and regrets what he has done to his g/f and when the aclcohol wears off the girl makes him realize what he does to her, when she leaves him, Just like what "Just some asian" said.
