I wake up and I am tired
So I lie in bed and stretch
Cause I don't want to rush this day along

I breathe deeply as I lie there
Sleep still holds me on the mattress
I struggle as I try to stop my date

I sit up, but I sit crooked
I sit crooked on the edge of the bed
That holds the warmth from where I slept

I stumble out of focus to the bathroom
Where I lean before the toilet
That I'll clean when I'm awake

Oh, I'm underneath the water
As I sputter, and I wonder
How I got up out of bed and in the shower

Back in bed I end up lying
Let my blankets do the drying
I lie naked, I lie sleeping, once again

I just wanna sleep forever
Yes, I just wanna sleep forever
Wake me when it's time to die

Do you love me? Yes, I love you
Can you show me? Yes, I can
But will you show me in a way that I'll believe?

I've been hurt, and I've been left
And I don't need that anymore
All I need is what I've got and nothing else

I'm too dumb for you to fool me
I'm too old to play your games
If you wanna lie beside me that's your choice

But I warn you not to touch me,
There's a chance that you might wake me
And I'd rather be alone inside my head

Oh, I just wanna sleep forever
Yes, I just wanna sleep forever
Wake me when it's time to die

I'm awake now and I'm listening
To the voice inside my head
That says I've gotta make the most of every day

So I stand before the mirror,
And I note my imperfections
I get dressed, I comb my hair, I'm out the door

A couple cappucinos
and an hour in the sunshine
And I finally grow accustomed to the day

But it's too late to go to sleep
I'll have to wait til I can dream
'Cause the reaper makes me live another day

Oh, I just wanna sleep forever
Yes, I just wanna live forever
Wake me when it's time to die

Back in bed I end up lying
Let my blankets do the drying
I lie naked, I lie sleeping, once again

Yes, I just wanna sleep forever
Yes, I just wanna sleep (x4)
Yes, I just wanna sleep forever
