Wake Up

'Wake Up' is actually a song that I wrote for my english classwork, & so I decided to post it up here.
Its about a break up - with reality being the hardest and most soulbreaking part to face.

You didn’t see me
Watching you across the street
As you took her hand
And held her in your arms

You held her tight
Like you used to hold me
I had to look away cos
I should be the one in your embrace


(Chorus)
When I dream
You hold my hand
Like you’re never gonna let go
When I dream
It’s you and me
Like how we used to be
But dreams don’t always
Have a happy ending
When I wake up
I wake up to a nightmare

The roses you sent me
Stand withered in my room
The chocolates you gave me
Leave a bitter taste in my mouth


(Chorus)
When I dream
You hold my hand
Like you’re never gonna let go
When I dream
It’s you and me
Like how we used to be
But dreams don’t always
Have a happy ending
When I wake up
I wake up to a nightmare


(Bridge)
Can’t I turn back the hands of time
Can’t I fix what once was ours
Can’t you say just once again
That you love me?


(Chorus)
When I dream
You hold my hand
Like you’re never gonna let go
When I dream
It’s you and me
Like how we used to be
But dreams don’t always
Have a happy ending
When I wake up
I wake up to a nightmare 

When I wake up
I wake up to a nightmare

The End
