Relient K – Man lyrics

[Verse 1]
I spent the last six years
Like Hoffman in a swimming pool, and I've
Been lost at sea inside a house off Driftwood Avenue, and I
I made a mess out of the life that lay ahead of me, oh
The clock is ticking faster now
And I'm too old to be growing up

Goodbye the heartache
That's the only southern part of me
I pack some boxes in the basement
And move down the street, and I
I'll leave the pirate ships to kids who don't know anything, oh
I'll be every bit the person we both already know I'll be

[Chorus]
Wake up, wake up, it's time to be a man
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, it's time to be a man
Wake up, wake up
Wave goodbye as I outgrow the shadow of Peter Pan
It's time to be a man

[Refrain]
Don't close your eyes
Don't say goodnight
Don't take your life
Wake up, wake up

I had another nightmare, baby won't you comfort me?
Been lost at sea inside a house off Beachwood Avenue, and I
I made a mess out of the life that lay ahead of me, oh
The clock is ticking faster now
The clock is ticking faster now

[Chorus]
Wake up, wake up, it's time to be a man
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, wake up, it's time to be a man
Wake up, wake up
Wave goodbye as I outgrow the shadow of Peter Pan
It's time to be a man

[Refrain]
Don't close your eyes
Don't say goodnight
Don't dissapear
Don't not be here
Wake up, wake up

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up [x4]

[Chorus]
Wake up, wake up, it's time to be a man (Don't close your eyes)
Wake up, wake up (Don't say good night)
Wake up, wake up, it's time to be a man (Don't disappear)
Wake up, wake up
Wave goodbye as I outgrow the shadow of Peter Pan
I'll be every bit the person we both already know I can
It's time to be a man

[Verse 3]
I used to see all [?]
Been lost at sea inside a house off Driftwood Avenue
I made a mess out of the life that lay ahead of me
The clock is ticking faster now
The clock is ticking faster now
