Waking Up Late

(also recorded as 'Always Wake Up Late')


I woke up slow this morning
like a plane ripping me from the ground
I never felt such a distraction
As breathing in and out

I woke up sick this morning
Like a seatbeltless car crash
I never knew what I had
what real comfort was

This weight never falls off
Why's my heart always in my back pocket
I can't see the sun rise over morning dew
I always wake up late

All my life is on the floor
I leave it there for humility
Step around, slide me under the door
I know this is all that's left of me

All my life is sinking fast
I don't know how much more I can last
I try to swim back to the shore
Like breathing in & out

I take another easy chance
just one more till the last
I can't see the sun rise over the gulf
I always wake up late

Fill me up with vanity
I'm stuck here in my white walled room
All I ask for is a motive
I really should stay in bed

Fill me up with novelties
I'm stuck here in my lazy head
all I ask is impress me
(no) I really should just stay in bed

reach for me through broken glass
I'll close these tired eyes at last
I never see the sun rise over me
I always wake up late
