Athenaeum (1990)


Please wake me
I don’t know if I’m still dreaming
Please wake me
I’m one side calm and one side screaming

Out into the hall
I never really thought that I was anything at all
Until I saw the person in the mirror on the wall
Staring back at me

Suddenly everything changes
Suddenly everything’s fine
Suddenly the words jump off the pages
Suddenly I’m alright

Please wake me
I don’t know if I’m still breathing
Please wake me
With one eye closed and one eye beaming

Out into the hall
I never really thought that I was anyone at all
’cause everyone around me always made me feel so small
But now that I can see

I’ve been waiting patiently
For you to come and rescue me from things
I know are sure to come
And I’ve been waiting here all day
But nothing seems to come my way
I know I’ll never have it all

Please wake me
I don’t know if I’m existing
Please wake me
Let me know if someone’s listening

Suddenly I’m alright
