WORDS

WIDE AWAKE 

Blue bottles filled with silver jewels. 

Black teeth and blood from human fools. 

I’ve never heard a voice so cruel. 

 

I’ve tiptoed on these wooden floors. 

This silence, loud as lion’s roars. 

And I won’t fight you anymore. 

 

Though you’ve pierced me to the soul, 

I would die to make you whole. 

 

Our lives move much too fast, Ramona. 

This precious moment’s passed, Ramona. 

I’m wide awake tonight... 

 

I’ve threatened fist and fire and chain. 

I’ve called you every childish name. 

You never seemed to feel the pain. 

 

Love is blessed, Love is blind. 

Lovers dream of gold and time. 

Every tear like holy wine. 

 

I’m the color of my chagrin. 

As I babble once again. 

 

Our lives move much too fast, Ramona. 

This precious moment’s passed, Ramona. 

 

Deaf as the sea. Heart in knots. Memories are all I’ve 

got. 

I’ve never known what’s good for me. But, I could’ve 

sworn that it was you... 

 

Our lives move much too fast, Ramona. 

This precious moment’s passed, Ramona. 

I’m wide awake tonight... 

I’m wide awake tonight... 

I’m wide awake tonight...
