When I was younger she'd come to me in dreams
Her face was hidden in the mountain streams
Her voice disguised as the sound of the wind
The rustling of leaves, she would call from within
Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead
So many memories of those years have passed
Beyond the confusion, that thought would last forever
The countless veils that I wore like clothes
Have been stripped away, now stand here exposed
Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead
In the night when the moon casts no shadows at all
We sat by the fire as she started to call
Out to all who would hear that the death of what's dead
Is the birth of what's living and her words filled my head
Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead
It's the life that lies sleeping when you think you're awake
Forever is real and the rest is just fake
And though volumes are written on this subject alone
She used three simple words and she brought it all home
Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead
