I was scared to death
Afraid to close my eyes
and find that I was gone
Like every other one who left before the dawn
I vanished in the air
Am I still there?

[chorus]
Wake me gently, if you can
Wake me gently, just touch my hand
Wake me gently, pull my sleeve
'cause where I'm at is where I want to leave.

And in my sleep, I look so lifeless on this bed
Laid out on satin sheets
This dream's a novel that I don't dare complete
No happy endings read
I think the hero's dead

[Chorus]

Me to my slumber
And I'll never come home
Please help me I'm frightened
Of what's going on (what's going on?)

And if I can't wake up
Will I be all alone?
A stranded orphan here?
Or will I bump into some other wandering souls?
And will they talk to me?
Somebody, somebody please rescue me

[Chorus]

I want to leave
I want to leave
I just want to wake up
I want to leave I don't want to stay
