"Wake Up" as written by Alicia Augello-cook and Kerry Brothers Jr.....
You used to be my closest ally
In this cold, cold world of deception and lies, ooh
We would defend and protect one and another (one another)
Now I can't tell if we're enemies or lovers

So who's gonna rescue us from ourselves?
Tell me, are we gonna wake up?
Baby, it's time for lovin'
Are we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

Oh baby!
Where did we go wrong, baby?
Uh huh
Did this cold, cold world turn us into stone?
Well
Now all our battle is your ego and you pride
It's ticking like a time bomb ready to ignite
Hurts me to fight

So who's gonna rescue us from ourselves?
When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for loving
Are we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for loving
Are we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

When the smoke clears
What will we look for amongst the tears and pain?
Why must we argue over the same thing
Just to wake up and go back again?
It's never too late
It's been too long
Can't get it right where no one thinks they're wrong
Got to get out of bed and take a look at what's going on

Oh, when we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for loving
When we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for loving
When we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for lovin'
When we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

Oh baby (wake up)
Oh darlin' (wake up)
When we gonna wake up? (wake up)
When we gonna take a look and see (wake up)
What's going on (wake up)
Oh what's going on (wake up)
We've spent so much time (wake up)
And we're about to lose it all (wake up)
Oh, baby baby baby (wake up)
Said I need you baby
Oh I need my baby home
Bring my baby back to me (wake up)

Wake up
Wake up, oh, baby baby baby
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

    General CommentAll about the rollercoaster cycle of relationships. It think it's come to a point where these two have reached a point of total discernment, understanding where they go wrong. But it's one thing to understand what the problem is and knowing how to fix it.
    my favorite line:

    now all i battle is your ego and your pride
    ticking like a time bomb, ready to ignite
    hurting me to fight
