With so little sleep
At least you'd think I'd find some peace in my dreams
In my dreams
But my mind still winds up on the same thing
The same scene
The same themes

Cause it's all stuck in my subconscious
Built up from every day
So I'm stuck with these nightmares
Where you're gone and so far away

And when I wake up
I realize that everything's still wrong
I'm still here and you're still gone
It's not fair
Cause either way I spin it
Separation seems so wrong
These breaks are far too long for me

Hours and hours
I'm stuck inside this place and this town
And you're gone
Far away, you're fighting for your life all alone
I want to wake up and go home

Cause it's all stuck in my subconscious
Built up from every day
So I'm stuck with these nightmares
Where you're gone and far away

Oh, this tortures me so much that
I get sick and I throw up
In my dream and here on my bed
It's messed up how it's all in my head
Yet it's affecting me oh so bad
I guess this distance just makes me sick

Cause when I wake up
It's 4 AM and I'm still all alone
Your message on my phone
Don't tell me that sleeping through the night
Is never this hard when you're home
Cause I already know

Wake me

    It's about a guy who was separated from his one true love and he's sickened by the fact that he can't get to her. He regrets letting her go off on her own and he can't get the memory of the moment she walked away out of his mind.

    "I guess this distance just makes me sick."
    this song, fucking huuurts. it's so like my situation it's incredible.
    "it's all stuck in my subconscious, built up from everyday."
    "& when I wake up I realize that everything's still wrong; I'm still here & you're still gone. it's not fair. cause either way I spin it, separation seems so wrong."

    this song desribes my situation perfectly, pretty much.
    "at least you'd think I'd find some peace in my dreams, but my mind still winds up on the same thing."
    bleh.
