lyrics

Build me up while we're down.
Fill me up; it's no surprise.
We're dead and gone, but you ain't one of them.
Wash your hands and wash her eyes.

And I'll say wake up.
Wake up.
Wake up with your eyes.
With your eyes.

Find a girl. Dress up nice.
Find a world and call it your own.
But I'm not done because I ain't good enough,
to not think twice and not go home.

And I'll say wake up.
Wake up.
Wake up with your eyes.
With your eyes.

Build me up. Now don't say goodbye.
And don't stop loving her in this life.
We're dead and gone, but you ain't one of them.
Now wash your hands, and I'll wash her eyes.

And I'll say wake up.
Wake up.
Wake up with your eyes.
With your eyes.
