lyrics

Learned what you know
From losing things you loved
Took care to show
Everyone the things you're dreaming of
So that, at least, someday you will remind them
Remind them you always wanted it this way

Took a chance
Asked you to dance
Turned me down but
Your eyes said you wanted to
When we meet someday you will remember
Remember I always wanted you that way

Please can someone tell me
For how long have I been sleeping now?
I was just a child who closed his eyes
Awoke to find he doesn't know how he got here
Reconciling choices I'm convinced are not my own
Please can someone tell me
For how long have I been sleeping now?

Broke yourself
To be easy
So your kids
Could be raised on designer smiles
When they've grown someday they won't remember
Remember you never wanted it this way

Please can someone tell me
For how long have I been sleeping now?
I was just a child who closed his eyes
Awoke to find he doesn't know how he got here
Reconciling choices I'm convinced are not my own
Please can someone tell me
For how long have I been sleeping now?

All along I knew it was wrong
But we moved on because we were young
