John Wesley Harding – Sleeper, Awake lyrics

Rise up from your deep sleep baby
Wake up from your slumber
I've got your anesthetic ready
And I have got your number

I'll do anything to help you make a smooth transition
The coffee's in the grinder and the key's in the ignition

Sleeper arise
Wipe the sleep from your eyes
Get out of your bed
Quit playing dead
Sleeper awake
How much time's it take?
Lie there still and I'll kiss you
Oh how I've missed you
Sleeper awake

You've slept for a thousand years but
But not like sleeping beauty
Maybe you're the princess who refused to do her duty

No poison spinning wheel
No blood upon the singer
You just buried your alarm
And turned off the phone ringer

Sleeper arise
Wipe the sleep from your eyes
Get out of your bed
Quit playing dead
Sleeper awake
How much time does it take?
Lie there still and I'll kiss you
Oh how I've missed you

Oh but I'm scared
One touch of your cold lips I will join you there
But I don't care
This is a risk
This is a risk
This is a kiss
This is a kiss

Sleeper arise
Wipe the sleep from your eyes
Get out of your bed
Quit playing dead
Sleeper awake
How much time does it take?
Lie there still and I'll kiss
I can't resist you
Sleeper awake

Sleeper awake
