Two days and I've not slept a wink
These thoughts that I've been thinking
This is the mark I aim to miss (again)

You toss and turn
I lie awake
Who knows what I've been drinking
Another cheap meaningless kiss (to give)

From the beginning
Dove down and lost with all his charm
Just wanna wake up
Wake up in someone's

I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up

Six days and I can see the same
Brown eyes in this reflection
Is this the man you say I’ll be (become)

You toss and turn
I lie awake
Into the sand were sinking
Holding us back from breathing free (undone)

From the beginning
Dove down and lost all his charm
Just wanna wake up
Wake up in someone's

I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up

I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up

More than words
Keep to yourself
Like a curse
Fares thee well

One-man game
One truth to tell
All this blame
Hammers your way to hell

I've got a feeling
It's not the safest place to start
This heavy breathing
It seems we’re better off breaking hearts

And from the beginning
Dove down and lost all his charm
Just wanna wake up
Wake up in someone's

I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up

I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up
I just wanna wake up

I just wanna wake up
In someone else's arms

    General CommentThere are three lines in which ADimeADexter wrote:

    "Dove down and lost all his charm"

    The correct line all three times is:

    "Dove down and lost WITH all his charm"

    This really changes up the meaning of the line when you read it as he didn't lose his charm, but lost with his charm still intact; it just wasn't good enough.

    Also on line 16 ADimeADexter wrote:

    "Is the man you say I’ll be?"

    The Correct line is:

    "Is THIS the man you say I'll be?"

    ...everytime I hear this song and the line comes to:

    "All this blame, hammers your way to hell"

    I swear it sounds like "hamburgers way to hell" ...mmm hamburgers, in someone elses arms, I could go for that.

    General Commentwow alot of this is wrong!

    here is the complete song:

    two days and i've not slept a wink
    with these thoughts that i've been thinking.
    this is the mark i aim to mis (again).
    you toss and turn, i lie awake.
    who knows what i've been drinking.
    another cheap, meaningless kiss (to give).

    from the beginning, dulled down and lots with all it's charm.
    i just want to wake up, wake up in someone's...

    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up.

    six days and i can see the same brown eyes in this reflection.
    is this the man you say i'll be (become)?
    you toss and turn, i lie awake.
    into the sand we're sinking.
    holding us back from breathing free (i'm done).

    from the beginning, dulled down and lost with all it's charm.
    i just want to wake up, wake up in someone's...

    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up.

    more than words, you keep to yourself.
    like a curse that fares thee well.
    one man came.
    one truth to tell.
    all this blame.
    hammers your way to hell.

    i've got a feeling it's not the safest place to start.
    this heavy breathing, it seems we're better off breaking hearts.
    from the beginning, dulled down and lost with all it's charm.
    i just want to wake up, wake up in someone's...

    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up. (i just want to wake up.)
    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up. (i just want to wake up.)
    i just want to wake up.
    i just want to wake up. (i just want to wake up.)
    i just want to wake up.

    i just want to wake up in someone else's arms.

    :)

    General CommentI think this song sums up the feelings of so many late teens to late twenties today. They're tired of being alone and long for someone else's companionship. Its a very wrestless feeling

    General CommentTo me it sounds like he's having troubles with his current relationship. Both of them aren't happy and things just aren't working out ("another cheap meaningless kiss"). Things have been so bad that it's gotten to the point where he wants to "wake up in someone ELSE'S arms".

    General CommentI think it's about someone who wants to fall in love, basically. He's gone after a crush, or several, only to find that it was meaningless. He longs for real love, not a cheap imitation.
