"Someone Wake Me Up" as written by Jessica Louise Origliasso, Lisa Marie Origliasso, Billy Steinberg and Josh Alexander....
We got the same friends
We're gonna have to see each other eventually
So won't you tell me how we're gonna deal with that
My cd's are at your place
And you know I'm gonna have to pick em up
So won't you tell me how we're gonna deal with that

Even though it was mutual, it still kills inside
Cause for so long, how I've been defined

[Chorus]
It feels just like I'm going crazy
I guess that this is breaking up
And now not even you can save me
Will someone wake me up
Never thought that we'd go under
I guess we won't be making up
And if this is a dream I wonder
Could someone wake me up

I still have your old shirt
You know the one I said I'd thrown away
I put it on when I went to bed last night
Baby, is this where our story ends
When I turn out the light
Fantasy and reality fight

[Chorus]

Someone wake me up
Someone wake me up

Even though it's over now
It still kills inside
Cause for so long you have been my life

[Chorus]

Oh, baby you were my first time
I will always keep you inside

    General CommentI think this is about breaking up with someone, but it kind of doesn't seem real yet. She's still got things of his, and he still has things of hers and i think its saying that they're always going to have things to bind them. Really good song.

    General CommentIt's the whole "dream" state after a breakup, where it's come as such a shock or so suddenly that it's like it's not real. Hence, "someone wake me up."

    Great song. The fact that this is the second comment on it makes me sad.

    MemoryThis was my song for my ex. We had all the same friends so it was weird when we broke up, and It was mutual but it still hurt like hell.

    "We got the same friends
    We're gonna have to see each other eventually
    So won't you tell me how we're gonna deal with that
    My cds are at your place
    And you know I'm gonna have to pick em up
    So won't you tell me how we're gonna deal with that

    Even though it was mutual, it still kills inside
    Coz for so long, how i've been defined" -----so us :(
