[Originally by Oasis]

I don't know what it is
That makes me feel alive
I don't know how to wake
The things that sleep inside


I hope that I can say
The things I wish I'd said
To sing my soul to sleep
And take me back to bed
You want to be alone
When we could be alive instead

(CHORUS:)'cause we need each other
We believe in one another
I know we're going to uncover
What's sleepin' in our soul

(repeated chorus)
What's sleepin' in our soul
What's sleepin' in our soul

There are many things
That I would like to know
And there are many places
That I wish you would go
But everything's depending
On the way the wind may blow

I don't know what it is
That makes me feel alive
I don't know how to wake
The things that sleep inside
I only wanna see the light
That shines behind your eyes

'cause we need each other
We believe in one another
I know we're going to uncover
What's sleepin' in our soul

Because we need each other
We believe in one another
I know we're going to uncover
What's sleepin' in our soul
What's sleepin' in our soul
What's sleepin' in our soul
Because we need each other
We believe in one another
I know we're going to uncover
What's sleepin' in our soul


We need
We believe (3x)
What we need (4x)
What's sleeping in our soul?
