"Wake up Older" as written by and Lisa Carver....
Slept in my makeup
Didn't get my teeth brushed
I crashed on the couch
And now my mouth tastes like yesterday's news

Well hello Jim Beam
Oh the places you've seen
If only you could talk
You'd tell me why he walked out on me and you

Oh the things lovers do when it's over
Oh the things lovers do when it's done
Find a cool bottle or a warm shoulder
Wake up older

And try to move on
I drove around last night
Thinkin' 'bout our last fight
I cruised by your house

And all the lights were out and you were gone
So I found me a stranger
With his comforting danger
But I thought about you

The whole time we were gettin' it on
Oh the things lovers do when it's over
Oh the things lovers do when it's done
Find a cool bottle or a warm shoulder

Wake up older
And try to move on
Find a cool bottle or a warm shoulder
Wake up older

Wake up older
Slept in my makeup
Didn't get my teeth brushed
I crashed on the couch and now my mouth tastes like

Yesterday's news

    General CommentI love this song.
    I think the way you can hear the pain in her voice is soo pretty.

    This song really is a great coming of age song I think. You love, you hurt and then next day you wake up older and move on.

    General CommentThis song is about using a one night stand to get over a recent break up. That would be the "stranger." But I love how she is hurt by this as well, and says that this causes you to "wake up older." I love this song so much.
