Crown the Empire Wake Me Up Lyrics

[Verse 1]
This world keeps pushing down upon me
And I keep hoping for a sweet dream
There's something left for me to see
There's something left for me to be
We can't ponder on this, world forever
You know we can save it, if together
Growing, day by day to make it
But my time's been wasted

[Chorus]
And while my eyes are open wide, I'm sound asleep on the inside
Wake me up, from this dream that never ends
Haunting me, Haunting me till my bitter end
Wake me up, from this nightmare that I live
Something inside of me keeps on giving in

[Verse 2]
Well I keep searching for an answer
But time will never tell, and you will never know
My choices are my own, but I can't choose where I call home
This life isn't carved in stone, this life has left me on my own

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Wake me up!
I'm wide awake
I'm not afraid anymore
I'm wide awake
It's you who helped me win this war

[Chorus 2]
Wake me up, from this dream that never ends
Haunting me, Haunting me till my bitter end
Wake me up, from this nightmare that I live
Something inside of me keeps on giving in
Wake me up, from this dream that never ends
Haunting me, Haunting me till my bitter end
Wake me up, from this nightmare that I live
Something inside of me keeps on giving in
