Gary Jules Falling Awake Lyrics

Last updated: 11/13/2011 10:00:00 AM

Eagle in the dark
Feathers in the pages
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattleing their cages
Found a way to blue
Another ghost to follow
Said it's only up to you
It's the hardest pill to swallow

Mmmmmhmmmmmhhhmmm

You never get to choose
You live on what they send you
And you know they're gonna use
Things you love against you
One foot in the grave
One foot in the shower
There's never time to save
You're paying by the hour

And that's just the way it goes
Falling awake
And that's just the way it goes

Slipping through the bars
Aware of the danger
Of riding in the cars
Taking candy from strangers
And you're never out of hand
Never out of pocket
I'm super sonic man
Do you wanna buy a rocket

Well that's just the way it goes
Falling awake
Falling awake
And that's just the way it goes
Falling awake
Falling awake

Eagle in the dark
Feathers in the pages
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattleing their cages
I could learn to play the game
Could learn to run the hustle
If I only had the brains
The money or the muscle

Loved it | Reviewer: Rebecca | 11/12/11

I can't remember where i heard this song for the first time,but i remember that the first time i heard it,i thought it was just a simple song,but in the second time,i played it and just closed my eyes and remembered some flashbacks of my life,and the tears just came streaming across mu face like a waterfall and i couldn't stop them!it's just too amazing,it's hard to find a song like that these days.



Amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/26/11

Its a great song, and I don't watch Gray's anatomy, so I came across this song just searching Gary Jules on Youtube.

I love his music, he's an artist who's worth much more than one or two famous songs.



To MELISSA | Reviewer: CJB | 11/10/10

Firstly, you're all petty who cares how anybody heard the song just answer the damn girls question.

The best I have and I'm no poet is:

You have no control, those who love you, will screw you. You're an "eagle in the dark"
Eagles are not nocturnal, so you're out of place, but being forced out of place. Which coincides with:
"You never get to choose
You live on what they send you
And you know they're gonna use
Things you love against you"

I think falling awake is about the realization of what the world or one loved one expects from you; however you might not be the type of person to perform such deeds, that you may deem wrong or just difficult.

"I could learn to play the game
Could learn to run the hustle
If I only had the brains
The money or the muscle"

PS Stop bitching about why the song got heard, who cares. It got heard, that's all that matters.



Titles are overrated. | Reviewer: Aimee~ | 3/23/09

It frustrates me in a strange way knowing that the vast majority of people posting here heard this song on Grey's Anatomy. Not sure why though.
It is pleasing to know Gary Jules is getting out there though and that people are aware he has other recordings aside from his cover of Mad World.
Whoooooopa~



Who cares? | Reviewer: Melissa. | 3/19/08

Who cares if it takes a tv show or game or whatever to get the singer/song noticed? The point is it's a really good song :) and personally, i heard it on Grey's Anatomy. Doesn't change the fact that it's an amazing song though, or that Gary Jules is great. Yeah, that's all.
