The Echoing Green – Stay Awake lyrics

"Doesn't look like they'll be closing down tonight..."

On your street of dreams what you see
Isn't always what you get
Life is not as dark as it may seem
You see your dream, it isn't over yet

I know the road you travel on
Has been so hard without a friend
You won't have to be alone for long
You turn to Him and the nightmare ends

Dreamer boy don't fall asleep tonight
Just say your prayers and hold on tight
There's no time to sleep
There's so much at stake
And I kneel and pray
That you would stay awake
Stay awake
Stay awake

Walking through your thoughts you see the fields
Of emotion set aflame
And you feel the hurt and you feel the heat
But get to your feet, 'cause here comes the rain

I know the pain you feel inside
Could make you fall and break your stride
Lift up your head and take a look above
And you'll see His hand reaching out with love

Dreamer boy don't fall asleep tonight
Say your prayers and hold on tight
There's no time to sleep
There's so much at stake
And I kneel and pray
That you would stay awake
Stay awake
Stay awake

Your young men will see visions
Your old men will dream dreams

When you walk, they will guide you
When you sleep, they will watch over you
And when you're awake, they will speak to you

(Come on!)

You always thought that a dream would be all you'd feel
Now it's time to wake up and make it real
To find eternal love was your only goal
Now there's someone reaching for your soul
You always thought that a dream was all you could give
There's a Man who died so your dreams could live
Sitting in the prison of your fear
Find yourself released as the Lord draws near

Dreamer boy don't fall asleep tonight
Say your prayers and hold on tight
There's no time to sleep
There's so much at stake
And I kneel and pray
That you would stay awake
Stay awake
Stay awake
Stay awake
Stay awake
