Nevertheless - Sleeping In Lyrics

'Cause when I am awake
I will have to face my life
And I'm hoping it's a phase
The walls that I create
Can only make it seem alright
And I get carried away like I'm the only one
Who's ever felt the way that I do
But I can hear you say, "You're not the only one
Everybody hopes to get through."
And it's got me sleeping in
Every day God, it's the same thing
Yeah, you caught me sleeping in
I'm still hiding; I'm still waiting
I need you here with me to face the world outside
'Cause I'm tired of sleeping in
I've been waking up with fear
'Cause all that I can hear
Is the ringing of alarms downtown
It's been going on for years
But you have made it clear
That I am not alone in this crowd
And I get carried away like I'm the only one
Who's ever felt the way that I do
But I can hear you say, "You're not the only one
Everybody hopes to get through."
And it's got me sleeping in
Every day God, it's the same thing
Yeah, you caught me sleeping in
I'm still hiding; I'm still waiting
I need you here with me to face the world outside
'Cause I'm tired of sleeping in
Open up my eyes
I'm tired of sleeping in
In a world that's dying to wake up
I'm done with sleeping in
