You wake me up
You wake me up
When you need me
All alone

You wake me up
You wake me up
When you need me
Oh

Ulysses looks at me so casually
But actually there's a time
Steadily creeping ‘round all through my home
Always alone at my door

What if I never spoke another word?
Would you have heard?

I don't know what you know
When I'm gone, do you turn the lights on?
Do you see passionately?
Or just differently?

Do you wear black because of laziness?
'Cause happiness is a chore?

What if I up and left and not come home?
How long would it take to move on?

I don't know what you know
When I'm gone, do you turn the lights on?
Do you see passionately?
Or just differently?

You wake me up
You wake me up
When you need me
All alone

You wake me up
You wake me up
When you need me
Oh

Ulysses looks around possessively
Aggressively dilates

The window's open but it's too far off
To come on down
Escalating wait, I feel myself exaggerate

How long do you wait?
Do you wait?
When I'm gone, do you turn the lights on?
Do you see passionately?
Or just differently?

    General CommentUlysses is the name of Steve Bays' black cat..

    I know this from a youtube video Steve posted a long time ago that was hilarious.
    I think the song is cute- sounds like Steve is wondering what's going on in his cat's head :D
