Wake Up

EDEN

Wake Up Lyrics

[Verse 1]
'Cause we've been driving so long
I can't remember how we got here
Or how we survived so long

Out trying to run from our pride
'Till you set fire to my atmosphere
And I remember how I spent the twenty-third
Feeling six feet under
When I'm thirty-thousand feet in the air

Chasing that sundown
So far east I'm westbound

Feeling like the edge of this world is near

[Pre-Chorus]
But you'll feel better when you wake up
Swear to god I'll make up
Everything and more when I get back someday

This is more than just a phase, love
Shooting stars all break up
And even though it seems like half the world away
Things will be better in America
Heard the streets are gold there
Maybe I could fly you out this place someday

Chasing dreams like I'm on Novocaine
Screaming through your airwaves
Looking back I almost thought I heard you say

[Chorus]
Stay, you're not gonna leave me
This place is right where you need to be

And why your words gotta mean so much to them
And they mean nothing to me?
So stay, you're not what you're hearing
'Cause I've been watching you changing

And who said you're one in a million, anyway?

[Verse 2]
'Cause you see only what you want to
Your tunnel vision owns you
And you can't see what's wrong

When you keep sleeping through the PM
Eyes wide open when you're dreaming
You’re sleepwalking, just keep talking

Maybe you can talk your way out of this deep end
No B-plan in your system
Just tell me what you're thinking
I'm scared that you might fall
But you're not
But you're not


[Pre-Chorus]
And you'll feel better when you wake up
Taking off your makeup
Sun always seems to wash our fears away
And it's always shining somewhere
I just gotta get there

And even though it seems like half the world away
Things are better in America
Heard the streets are gold there
Maybe I could fly you out this place someday

Chasing dreams like I'm on Novocaine
Screaming through your airwaves
Looking back I almost thought I heard you say

[Chorus]
Stay, you're not gonna leave me
This place is right where you need to be

And why your words gotta mean so much to them
And they mean nothing to me?
So stay, you're not what you're hearing
'Cause I've been watching you changing

And who said you're one in a million?

[Bridge]
You’re so much better than that
You’re so much better than that
You’re so much better than that
You’re so much better than that

Stay, you're not what you're hearing
'Cause I've been watching you changing
And who said you're one in a million anyway?


[Outro]
And you'll feel better when you wake up
Swear to God, I'll make up
Everything and more when I get back someday

Chasing dreams like I'm on Novocaine
Screaming through your airwaves
Looking back I almost thought I heard you say:
"You're so much better than that"

About “Wake Up”

Wake Up is about the moments before EDEN leaves his girl while she’s asleep (assumed to be passed out from probably alcohol). He turns back one last time before he goes and through an imaginary or hallucinated girlfriend, hears his doubts through her and he constantly has to remind himself of why he’s leaving her to go to America, where life is better.

During the second chorus, EDEN also plays little cuts from Nocturne and Interlude, with both being played on left and right channels
