AWAKE

INTRO

VERSE
sitting on a sofa named Sven
simulated leather
artificial conversation
maybe we’ve met, but we’re not sure when.

I really didn’t want to come
It was more of an obligation
I really didn’t know her that well…she was more of a
friend of a friend of a friend
Of a friend, of a friend….

BRIDGE
Oh no…
She always spoke highly of you
(she said) I can tell him anything, anything
you should meet him, you should
she said you were cool
she said “He’s my best girlfriend”
“my best girlfriend”

REINTRO

VERSE
wow…she said that ‘bout me?
I’m touched
I really should’ve brought a dish of something
But I can see there’s already too much
I never know what to bring these days
Vegetarians should be shot!
No…I didn’t know she was vee-gan
Guess it’s better that I forgot…
…to bring something

BRIDGE
She always spoke highly of you
I can tell him anything, absolutely anything
you should meet him, you should
she said you were cool
she said “He’s my best girlfriend”
“girlfriend”

CHORUS
I guess that’s who I am
So send me all your damaged, dinged up girls
And I’ll gloo ‘em back together again
Whatever’s left over, I’ll keep for myself
Until I get enough, to be to be something other
than a wrong-righter, a wrong-righter

VERSE
Watch where you park your glass
Everything’s so expensive
Maybe we should mingle?
That clam stuff looks…edible

How late are you gonna stay?
Wanna get a drink or coffee later?
Give a sign if you wanna slip away
You know that thing with your hand
No, the other thing…

LAST BRIDGE:
You know…She always spoke highly of you, too
(she said) I can tell her anything, absolutely anything
you should meet her, you should
she said you were cool
she said “she’s my best boyfriend”
“my best boyfriend”

CHORUS
I guess that’s who I am
So send me all your bitter, banged-up boys
And I’ll gloo ‘em back together again
Whatever’s left over, I’ll keep for myself
Until I get/know enough, to be to be something other
than a wrong-righter, a wrong-righter

CODA
She called as I was going to bed
I couldn’t hang up
It would’ve been rude
I’ve got this really big problem, she said
And I knew you’d be awake
‘cause you don’t work,
Tell me all about it, I’m ready to listen
Tell me all about it, I’m ready to listen
I can fix anything, absolutely anything

You think so??
Ok…so how do you know if you’re dead?
How do you know if you’re dead?
I think I might be dead…
How do you know if you’re dead?
