Yeah, yeah

Don't wake me up (wake me up),
If I'm sleeping this life away.
Tell me that I'll never be good enough (enough).
Sometimes it hurts to think, it could really be that way, it won't be that way

I'm tired and I'm lost,
I don't wanna be found.
I put my heart and my soul
And strength in this now, so

Forgive me 'cause I won't forget that.
Yeah, this world has changed me,
So you know when you ask me:

Who are you now?
Did you say what you want?
Don't go back to the start
I'm asking, who are you now?
Did they break you apart?
Won't you fight back for what you want?

Sometimes you gotta fall before you fly
We're gonna work it out
Yeah, yeah

Don't, don't, don't wake me up (wake me up),
'Cause I hate who I am today!
So come on, come on
And just take, take, take what you want! (what you want)
Is it now what we're living for?
We're always wanting more! (take, take, take)

You made me hate my own reflection,
Question every choice I make.
So I could try to be perfect,
But I will try to be fake.

So forgive me 'cause I really could care less that
This world has changed me.
So you know when you ask me:

Who are you now?
Did you say what you want?
Don't go back to the start
I'm asking, who are you now?
Did they break you apart?
Won't you fight back for what you want?

Sometimes you gotta fall before you fly,
And sometimes you really live, you've gotta try.
We can change it all together, in the end you're gonna find
That what we felt in our hearts was real the whole time.
When you open up your eyes, I hope that you find
Who you are, who you are!

Who are you now?
Who are you now?

Who are you now?
Did you say what you want?
Don't go back to the start
I'm asking, who are you now?
(Who are you, who are you, who are you)
Did they break you apart?
Won't you fight back for what you want?

Sometimes you gotta fall before you fly,
Sometimes you gotta fall before you fly,
We're gonna work it out.

    I think its aboiut someone who lost their identity and knowledge of 'who they are' due to them trying to be the other person's idea of 'perfect'.

    I think its about someone whos changed for someone else but not changed in the right way specific for that person. Now, they're lost and tired of pretending to be something they're not and dont know who they are anymore because faking someone else has started to become them

    To me, it's about changing and having people not like you for that change. The change is for your benefit not anyone else, but they're making you feel imperfect. And trying to be perfect for them is only making you fake.

    Dont tell me i changed, youre the one who changed the way we use to be when all i do is try to make you back to the way you were. Its ok to be inlove, thats why you must fall in love before you take off from this life.

    How people make others change because their not happy with how they look, they change others to make themselves feel better.
