"Waking Life" as written by and Dave Bassett Schuyler Fisk....
There's an anchor that's pulling on my heart,
And it's deep in the water but it can't take me down.
Tracin' faces with fingers and we're just the same as we were,
Just our eyes never found what I see now,
That my feet are on the ground.

[Chorus]
'Cause I'm not lost, just looking for the prince.
I'm taking it, one step at a time and I'm getting by.
By the way,
It's you on my mind,
It's you on my mind.

And here comes the night pulling puppet strings on my heart again,
Shows me all of this time I've been blind to this waking life.
Now I see it everywhere.

[Chorus]

I can't see you but I know you're here,
I, know you're here.
I, know you're here.

I'm not lost, just looking for the prince.
I'm taking it, one step at a time and I'm getting by.
By the way.

I'm not lost, just looking for the prince.
And I'm takin it, one step at a time and I'm gettin' by.

And you're still on my,
Oh you're still on my mind,
You're still on my mind,
Oh you're still on my mind,
Oh you're still on my mind.

    General CommentI see this song a little differently.
    I really relate it to the situation that I'm in now. My boyfriend and I broke up a few weeks ago, and its been so hard. But I know I'll be okay.
    I see the chorus as saying that he isn't lost, but looking for where they came from, and she's just getting through it one day at a time, but he's still on her mind.
    He still has a pull, but it isn't overhelming
