The Dear Hunter – Shake Me (Awake) Lyrics

SHARE

When bliss can’t be found
I stumble around
In a daze without a destination
If you wanna go now, honey honey
Save me a seat
Cuz I know I’d find relief
Oh, if I could just suspend my disbelief

Oh! I got oh for a minute
To think about the places I don’t go when I’m stuck in the race
Oh! I gotta let go of tomorrow
Cuz I never would’ve missed today

Come and shake me awake (shake, shake me awake)
And pull me far away (so far away)
From the endless circles I’ve been running in
I’ve had about all I can take (so take, take, take me away)
So take me far away (so far, far away)
To a life that’s far less ordinary
Before I’m in the mortuary

If day becomes dusk
Don’t let that stop us
On our way to something more uncertain
Cuz when we arrive, oh honey honey
Wherever we’re goin’
We may never want to leave
So just stay a while with me

Come and shake me awake (shake, shake me awake)
Pull me far away (so far away)
From the endless circles I’ve been running in
I’ve had about all I can take (so take, take, take me away)
So take me far away (so far, far away)
To a life that’s far less ordinary

How did I get so obsessed with time?
When there’s no way I could know
How long I’ll be before my time
So you and I should carve a little out before I go
Maybe attend more matinees
Spend more time at the park
Be less concerned with what the haters say
Cuz they’re just haters (they’re just haters anyway)

Oh! I got oh for a minute
To think about the places I don’t go when I’m stuck in the race
Oh! I gotta let go of tomorrow
Or I never would’ve
Never would’ve
Never would’ve
Never would’ve
Never would’ve
Missed today

Come and shake me awake (shake, shake me awake)
Pull me far away (so far away)
From the endless circles I’ve been running in
I’ve had about all I can take (so take, take, take me away)
So take me far away (so far, far away)
To a life that’s far less ordinary
Before I’m in the mortuary
