Wake Me Up Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I should ink my skin
With your name
And take my passport out again
And just replace it
Verse 2
See I could do without a tan
On my left hand, where my fourth finger meets my knuckle
And I should run you a hot bath
And fill it up with bubbles
Verse 3
'Cause maybe you're lovable
And maybe you're my snowflake
And your eyes turn from green to gray and in the winter I'll
Hold you in a cold place
And you should never cut your hair
'Cause I love the way you flick it off your shoulder
Verse 4
And you will never know just how beautiful you are to me
But maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
Verse 5
And would you ever feel guilty
If you did the same to me
Would you make me a cup of tea
To open my eyes in the right way
And I know you love Shrek
'Cause we've watched it twelve times
But maybe you're hoping for a fairy tale too
And if your DVD breaks, today
You shoulda got a VCR
'Cause I never owned a Blu-Ray
True say
Verse 6
And now I've always been s*** at computer games and your brother always beats me
And if I lost, I go all cross
And chuck all the controllers at the TV
And then you'd laugh at me
And be asking me
If I'm gonna be home next week
And then you'd lie with me till I fall asleep
And flutter eyelash on my cheek between the sheets
Verse 7
And you will never know just how beautiful you are to me
But maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
Verse 8
I think you hate the smell of smoke
You always tryna get me to stop
But you drink as much as me
And I get drunk a lot
Verse 9
So I'll take you to the beach
And walk along the sand And I'll
Make you a heart pendant
With a pebble held in my hand
Verse 10
And I'll carve it like a necklace
So the heart falls where your chest is
And now a piece of me is a piece of the beach and it falls just where it needs to be
And rests peacefully
So you just need to breathe
To feel my heart against yours now
Against yours now
Verse 11
'Cause maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
Verse 12
Or maybe I'm just in love when you wake me up
Maybe I fell in love when you woke me up
