Guitars N Bandanaz – Wide Awake lyrics

I never thought I'd feel this way
I'm wide awake I'm dreaming
Bittersweet this taste of sound
The glare of glory I fear
Oh beautiful you once were now
You hide behind my secrets oh
S. O. S. I'm going down
Drowning in a bath so cold
Someone take me 'way from here
Oh please let me go

I'm married to the game but lost the wedding ring
She stole my innocence it's not a thing badda bing
And even though the picture's in my eyes it's harder to verbalize
At times I wish that I can sing

I never thought I'd feel this way
I'm wide awake I'm dreaming
Deep inside I once knew pain
I seen you crying
Faded picture in my wallet, see no faces
Missing pieces to this game
I pray somebody stop it
I'm holdin' back from you today
Oh please let me go

I once had a notion that I would win awards
Slammin' doors on cars, black bandanaz on guitars
I was somethin' like a sniper but was shootin' for a star
The constituents of life keep you from moving very far

Running to your affliction I am running away from tears of mine (mind)
I'll sing myself asleep this time to what's playing on my radio
To your song I lay my head on my pillow
Brilliant color fades to grey, somehow my heart is not red
In silent words I hear you say... Please let me go

Heard the cries and the screams
It was more than a dream
Seems reality has left
Saw the faces as they wept

Wide awake, saw the faces as the wept (repeats)
