The Diving Bell – Wake Up lyrics

Lay your head like a weary soldier
Leave it there resting on my shoulder
Listen to the sound of the music playing
Listen to the music if your heart is breaking

Wake up, wake up and rise, my dreamer
I’ll stay close beside you till the last day
If you fade, If you fade I will bring you back
If you fade, If you fade I will bring you back

Requiem’s dark bells just clatter
The resonance of death is shattered
Truth like fire will never falter
Transcends the tongue of the ancient liar

Put a penny over your eyes, love
With a prayer-tipped tongue I will sing you home
