lyrics

Wake up sleep head. You can do your sleeping when we’re good and dead. I’ve tried so many times to let you know what’s going on in my mind.

So, put your fears on a shelf, I can’t swim by myself and the water’s fine… I’ll turn it into wine for you.

You’re such a hopeless case just like this marble making rings out in space. Let’s get on the 3:15. I wanna take you somewhere that the water is clean and the streets aren’t so warm but here comes the storm. See the whole Northeast wake up to see that we’re in for a whole lot of rain…

You know I’m gonna stand by your side. I want you to miss me when I die.

It’s high time o be long gone. You’re standing in the shower with your high heels still on. Turn off the broadcast news… is it any wonder that your so confused, singing the blues, I catch you sleeping in your shoes and its such a waste but it sells ad space. We wake up to find a falling sky… well, we’re in for a whole lot of rain!

You know I’m gonna stand by your side… I want you to miss me when I die.
