Alicia Keys – Wake Up lyrics
[Verse 1:]

You used to be my closest ally
In this cold cold world of deception and lies, uh huh
We would defend and protect one another (one another)
Now I can't tell if we're enemies or lovers

[Bridge:]

So who's gonna rescue us from ourselves

[Hook:]

When we gonna wake up baby
It's time for lovin'
When we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

[Verse 2:]

Oh, baby, where did we go wrong, baby, uh huh
Did this cold, cold world turn us into stone, well
Now all I battle is your ego and your pride
It's ticking like a time bomb, ready to ignite
Hurtin' me to fight

[Bridge:]

So who's gonna rescue us from ourselves

[Hook 2:]

When we gonna wake up baby?
It's time for lovin'
When we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

[Bridge:]
When the smoke clears
What will be left for us but tears and pain
Why must we argue over the same things
Just to make up and go back again
It's never too late
But it's been too long
Can't get it right when no one thinks they're wrong
When no on thinks they're wrong
Gotta get out of bed
And take a look at what's going on

[Hook and out]
