lyrics

when i awoke i saw you through my glassy orbs
you looked like a shadow of the day before
your face contained a hungry wind and chance of rain
overnight a change in travel plans you’re on your way

when i awoke
when i awoke
when i awoke
when i awoke

you step into my stream about a thousand times a day
an empty measurement of empty weight
you threw a friendly chair across a friendly room
then you made me breakfast in the afternoon

when i awoke
when i awoke
when i awoke
when i awoke

fall down and get up i like this joke
in comes the sunlight and the ceiling broke
up up and up up away we go
higher higher

i never thought I’d say this but i don’t need you
every time i wake up i’m just looking through
cuz all the wars are waged inside of both of us
and even through these changes you i’ll always love

when i awoke
when i awoke
when i awoke
open Up your eyes
open up your eyes
open up your eyes
open up your eyes
open up your eyes
(when i awoke)

a dream i didn’t know i had has come true
i don’t think it’s good or bad just something to do
it’s more or less hilarious it’s more or less blue
it’s probably good for both of us and good for you
when I....
