Lyrics

Can somebody make me a Get Out Of Jail card
That'll work on a broke heart
'Cause I left my strength in the gutter

Somethin's been pulling the trigger in my soul
And now there's a big hole
And I can't fill it up
With liquor

How much have I got to take
Before there's a start to change
I'm not asking for more than what I deserve

Is this just the price I pay
'Cause I wouldn't go away
Leave you alone to carry it on
Without me

[Chorus]
Don't wake me up
'Til life starts makin' sense
'Cause I've been killing myself again
Don't wake me up
'Til there's meaning in the suffering
And God stops making enemies out of friends
'Cause if I don't wake up then
Maybe I could begin again

I got a demon that's been chasing me down
And recently I've found
He's probably been here forever

It's taken a lot to get me to where I am
But now that I look back
I could'a done this so much better

What was I s'posed to do
What was I s'posed to say
Its not like I'm meant to fall apart

And how could you go and take
What you had no right to take
And tear out my heart
And take me apart
Piece by piece

[Chorus]
Don't wake me up
'Til life starts makin' sense
'Cause I've been killing myself again
Don't wake me up
'Til there's meaning in the suffering
And God stops making enemies out of friends
'Cause if I don't wake up then
Maybe I could begin again

I'd trade my last breath
For a second chance
If it unchains my hands
'Cause I can't take anymore

If I don't wake up
I hope you remember me
And know that I did the best I could

And when you speak of me
Show pictures when I was young
Before the world took the light out of me

And at the end of your days
When it's your turn to fall asleep
I hope you did this better than me

So when I see you next
We'll both be kids
And by then I'll be a better man

So when you don't wake up
That's when you'll see me again
