As I wait for sleep to drag me under
In the evening gloom I sit and wonder
The words I should have said to you
The thing I always meant to do
The bad dreams that all came true
Chorus:
You woke up my neighbourhood
night after night we would row
You woke up my neighbourhood
Things are pretty quiet round here now
When I think of how we were together
I know we couldn't be like that forever
Beneath the Seven Sister stars
The night we let it go too far
I slept out in the car
Chorus
I remember skipping on the porch till it grew cold
I remember feeling like I was eight years old
Somersaults across the lawn
Singing dancing up till dawn
Every now and then we'd have a row
You woke up my neighbourhood
Things are pretty quiet round here now
Chorus
