"Wake Up" as written by Matt Bronleewe, Tiffany Lee and Paige Armstrong....
(Are you ready for this?)

Yeah

[Chorus:]
Wake up
You son of a bitch
I wanna know who your with and
Why do you roll in and out
At like six in the morning

I say
Wake up
My love of mine
Why do you spend your time
With these guys who don't love you
The way that I do

This time things gonna be changin'
Start a new
Rearranging
I got a new
Girl I'm seein'
Just like the last one, jus' like the first one

Live for today
Not tomorrow
Keep movin' away from sorrow
Ain't one to beg or borrow

So listen to me

[Chorus]

Phone call
No mistakin'
She starts
Her head shakin'
Eyes open
Now I'm awake and
I'm gonna take it day by day now

Gettin' high
Good times rollin'
On the side
Cities showin'
Off somewhere new
To be goin'

So keep movin'

[Chorus x2]

    General Commenthe is obviously not over the "son of a bitch" that he broke up with. saying wake up he means pay attention or clear your head no one love you more than me.
    he's with another girl...just like the "last one" and just like the "first one" means she's just the same as all the rest nothing special.
    he' trying to move on..."live for today" "away from sorrow" he's too full of pride to "beg or borrow"
    so he'll keep moving forward despite the fact that he still loves her.

    seeing the video made this song clearer to me. the singer had an attitude and seemed angry about this situation.

    General CommentNice, the second song off of Tim's free internet album (myspace/rancid). Not as good as Hold On, but damn good. Apparently the album will be very regaae. In the same fashion as Life Won't Wait, but more simplistic.

    General Commentthis is obviously a song sung towards a woman he's asking the man why are you rolling in and out at 6 in the morning but then he cuts out to

    "I say
    Wake up
    My love of mine
    Why do u spend your time
    With these guys who don't love you
    The way that I do"

    kinna like saying whydo youf all for these assholes that prolly cheat on you?

    iunno this is my view towards the lyrics when hear the song. very good album actually.

    General CommentMy take!

    It's a song about somebody living with their ex-lover before they move apart. That's why he refers to her both as a "son of a bitch" and "my love of mine."

    She comes and goes as she pleases, likely seeing new guys. This hurts him, because he still has feelings for her.

    He isn't ready to move on, but he tries by dating a new girl. The problem is that his new girlfriend is just like his last one. And just like his first one. And all the ones in between. In other words, he is attracted to the wrong type of woman. He's trying to move on, but doing so in the wrong manner. He's trying to "keep moving away from sorrow," yet by dating the same type of woman he won't. He'll end up in the same situation that he is in now.
