When I wake up, I see the sky
I kiss the girl, open my eyes

First time I felt it, I was on my way to Aspen,
Sitting shotgun, ninja phase
Driver Macklemore in the back
When it happened. "What's going on?"
My vision funny, left side of my body scuzzy
And my motor skills were slowly being taken from me
I'm staring at my own hand like it was somebody else's
Panic beginning to ensue because I was feeling helpless
Maybe this iced coffee has joined the vodka and the diet soda
That I been consuming every night in the auto

Wisteria up ahead, "Jay, could you stop here, please?"
Maybe I just need some fresh air, deep breaths and to try and breathe
But when I got up to walk I just collapsed
My head is spinning, I'm thinkin a stroke or a mild heart attack
Stagger back into the wind, off to the nearest ER
Nurse thought I was on drugs, guess she was right from afar
But at the time my diagnosis was vertigo,
Starvaion and, basically, cocaine without even doing coke
Now on the gurney with that I.V. in my arm
Alls I could think about that from my mom's pops
Then I got me and everybody I cared about me and my welfare
Dug myself a hole to get out of with no healthcare
I come to find out, in Albuquerque, my disagnosis wrong
Severe panic attacks was what was happening all along
I come to find out it runs in my family
So what they did for me wrong, I kept my own
I reckon I'll use it to even become more strong

When I wake up, I see the sky
I kiss the girl, open my eyes
I will be here
And I will be here
And I will be here
And I will be, and I will be, and I will be...
When I wake up, I see the sky
I kiss the girl, open my eyes
I will be here
And I will be here
And I will be here
And I will be, and I will be, and I will be...
