Lyrics: Wake Me Up

DISCLAIMER: I have changed a couple of the lyrics from the generally-accepted versions posted on the web because (1.) I am 100% confident these are the words our Benjamin is actually singing, (2.) the Cap’n Swing version (called Indigo) makes the lyrics even more obvious, and (3.) Ric’s book, Lyrics and Prose, clearly supports the words I changed (thanks, Jen!). I marked the lines that I edited with an asterisk. Take a listen and see if you agree.

Wake Me Up by The Cars

Wake me up in the middle of the flight

Show me which way to go where the wind won’t blow

Swing me up, sweet purple June

Hold me like I’m a child that’s about to go wild

I’d like to know just where you’ve been; if you would like to try again

I’d like to slow this spin I’m in…

Would you like to begin?

 

Silver Sunday tease my eyes*

I am too dissatisfied with your other side*

Roll me up and drop me down

Lay me back in New York town; that’s where I’d like to be found

I’d like to know just where you’ve been; if you would like to try again

I’d like to slow this spin I’m in…

Would you like to begin?

 

Roll me up and drop me down

Lay me back in New York town; that’s where I’d like to be found
