[Chorus]
Wake up, Wake up
We can't keep sleeping on the job,
I'm watching my neck for knives
you plant beneath my jaw
And I can't open up my eyes,
you're far too much for me tonight.

Oh no my phone is ringing off the hook
you're on the other end
reason enough not to pick up
rather I'll tie the phone cord a
round my neck
If I'm not breathing for you I'd rather not breathe at all

[Chorus]

Oh no it's happening again tonight
I'm taking your phone calls
and listening to you cry
does it even matter, matter at all
that I'm restless in my sleep
this is the last thing I need
the last thing I need [x2]

[Chorus x2]

    Song Meaningi think he's talking about a girl he doesn't want to like but he does?
    im not sure. trying to find the meaning out.. not doing to good of a job haha

    Oh no my phone is ringing off the hook
    you're on the other end
    reason enough not to pick up
    rather I'll tie the phone cord a
    round my neck
    If I'm not breathing for you I'd rather not breathe at all

    i think that because this verse is kind of condescending....idkk
