Caught in a cold sweat
Stuck splitting hairs
I'm drinking too much I'm on my way to striking out
Go to sleep with the pressure of everyone
Watching and waiting they're yours for the taking
But I still have my doubts

Before you ask which way to go
Remember where you've been

Stay awake
Get a grip and get out, you're safe
From the weight of the world just take
A second to set things straight
I'll be fine
Even though I'm not always right
I can count on the sun to shine
The dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night

Figure it out
Boy you're tripping, so pull yourself together
Or you'll wash up like the rest
'Cause this ship is sinking
I'm thinking "I'm done for"
I'm watching the sails disappear underwater
Cause I'm no captain yet (I'm no captain yet)

I said before you ask which way to go
Remember where you've been

Stay awake
Get a grip and get out you're safe
From the weight of the world just take
A second to set things straight
I'll be fine
Even though I'm not always right
I can count on the sun to shine
The dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night

Believe you me
I'll give them anything
I'd tell them anything
I'll show them everything
Believe you me
I'll tell them everything
I'd tell them anything
I'll show them everything

Cause you ain't the only one's who wanna live it up!
You ain't the only one's!
[X6]

Stay awake (wake)
Get a grip and get out your safe (safe)
From the weight of the world just take (take)
A second to set things straight
I'll be fine (fine)
Even though I'm not always right (right)
I can count on the sun to shine (shine)
The dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night
