"Awake" as written by Jayney Klimek, Hans Hafner and Gareth Jones....
I guess it's been a while
And a long time too
Everything's still the same
And so are you

It's only in this light
That I could see what you'd be like
If it took a million years well
This is what I am

You're awake and I'm asleep and
We are so complete that way
You're asleep and I'm awake
Everything is so great

Everything is so great
Oh yeah
Heavy

I wash my hands of you
I wash my dirty feet too
And when I wash my hair
The dust clouds disappear

You're leaning out the window
Beating down a path real slow
With your heavy plastic bags and
Heavy head

You're awake and I'm asleep and
We are so complete that way
You're asleep and I'm awake and

Everything is so great
Everything is so great
Yeah
Oh yeah

I wish we had a laugh
But you're just not funny
Baby I'm leaving out the irony

You're awake and I'm asleep and
We are so complete that way
You're asleep and I'm awake and
Everything is so great
Everything is so great
Yeah

    General CommentThis song is interesting. She's fed up with the relationship and they are never on the same page (one is always awake and one is always asleep). They are never awake together or asleep together. But it makes them comlplete. Opposites attract, and that is what she is metaphorically depicting in this song.

    General CommentWhy one solid paragraph? Stanzas, people, stanzas.

    General Commentactually, Kay Hanley herself has said that the song is about former lovers meeting face to face after a breakup, and wondering what they ever saw in each other and realizing breaking up was truly was the bestdecision.
