Wake me up when it's over
Wake me up when it's done
When he's gone away and taken everything
Wake me up

Wake me up when the skies are clearing
When the water is still
'Cause I will not watch the ships sail away, so
Please say you will

If it were any other day
This wouldn't get the best of me

But today I'm not so strong
So lay me down with a sad song
And when it stops, then you know I've been
Gone too long

But don't shake me awake
Don't bend me or I will break
Come find me somewhere between my dreams
With the sun on my face

I will still feel it later on
But for now I'd rather be asleep
