"Wake Up Call" as written by Matthew Arnold Thiessen, Stephen Cushman, Matthew Ryan Hoopes and Brian Lee Pittman....
"It's 3p.m." she said, I said
"You're crazy"
She said "get out of bed, why are you so lazy? Why waste the day away?"
I said, "Because I'm tired"
"Wendy's called by th eway, they told me that you're fired."

Woah oh oh, Woah oh oh
So wreckless for all these years
Woah oh oh, woah oh oh
I crash into a wall
Woah oh oh , Woah oh oh
there's a ringing in my ears
Woah oh oh, Woah oh oh
and it's my wake up call
Jesus gave me a wake up call
take this world with a grain of salt
Jesus gave me a wake up call

"It's 3 a.m." she said, "Who are you, Matchbox 20?"
She said, "Are you getting rest?"
Sarcastic, I said "Plenty"
"Don't be a hypocrit."
I asked "What are you saying?"
When you praise God, do you meant it?
Are you sleeping when you're praying?

Woah oh oh, Woah oh oh
so wreckless for all these years
Woah oh oh, Woah oh oh
I crash into a wall
Woah oh oh, Woah oh oh
There's a ringing in my ears
Woah oh oh, Woah oh oh
and it's my wake up call
God gave me a wake up call
Take this world with a grain of salt
Jesus gave me a wake up call

    General CommentHey, don't troll. This is a Christian artist, so most of us kinda think Jesus is cool.

    Anyways, what's the Matchbox 20 thing? I don't get that.

    P.S. - if you want a good christian music site, jesusfreakhideout.com
