When You Wake Up (lyrics)

A musical version coming soon.


~~~~


There'll be a choir of birds in the trees
There'll be an aching joy in your knees
When you wake up, when you wake up
There'll be a heart of gold on your sleeve
And not a single reason to grieve
When you wake up, when you wake up

Oh, the wind will blow
Your hair will grow
And the water knows
That you'll never say "no"
To me

Oh, your bed is soft but it's cold
And the promises that you've been told
Will not appear, will not appear.
No, your eyes will see what your heart wants to see
And your body won't know, no, your body won't know
That it's free, you've been set free.

And the street lights' glow
Is the only halo
That we will ever know
That we will ever know

And the clouds will rain on the hill
Where your body no longer feels
When you wake up, when you wake up
Oh, we look out over the skyline
And we leave our stones
Yeah we leave our stones behind
For when you wake up.

Wake up!
