                        Have you ever been in love? In this kind of love, I mean?
When it's all so scary, so dreamy, so... oh whatever!
When the person you love doesn't seem to give a damn...
When you are so depressed, so -- angry -- you want to "wake up and forget",
and yet... and yet deep in your heart you know that will be the end of this bitter happiness...
the only happiness there is for those so madly in love!

                I heard what you said, and I can tell you it's true
I heard you've said that I am crazy about you
Turn in my sleep, the bad dream is over
Think of you and shall I ever recover?

     Now, I want to wake up
     How I want to wake up

I stood at the kitchen-sink, my radio played
Songs like "Tainted Love" and "Love Is Strange"
As I listened and the words hit my ears
I cried sudden tears

     Now, I want to wake up
     How I want to wake up
     Wake up
     (Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
     wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up)

(It's mad, it's mad, it's mad)
It's mad, to be in love with someone else
When you're in love with him, she's in love with me
But you know as well as I do
I can never think of anyone but you

     (All my life,
     all my life
     I want to wake up)

Play with fire, play with guns
It's easy to impress someone
Turning in my sleep, you call me a fool
To fall in love, is it so uncool?
     Now, I want to wake up
     How I want to wake up
     Now, I want to wake up
     Wake up...
