wake up screaming lyrics – queens of the stone age

paul stanley
live to win (2006)

wake up screaming – (paul stanley / desmond child / andreas carlsson) [verse]
in a bed in my room
all wrapped up in my own coc**n
in my head i see you
like i’m stuck in a déja-vu
and it’s always the same mind games
it’s a dangerous situation, insane
it’s a warp on my soul and i’ve lost all control

[chorus]
when i’m all alone and i dream of you
i wake up, i wake up screaming
9-1-1, no one hears my cries
i break up, i wake up screaming

[verse]
why must i grieve
for a lie that i still believe
it’s a waste, what a sin
it’s a fight i can never win
anywhere that i go, you go
baby, even in my own reflection, you show
like a ghost by my side with a hold on my mind

[chorus]

ooh-ooooh…

[guitar solo]

on and on
i’m running in slow motion
’till the dawn
when the morning saves me…

[chorus]

all alone and i dream of you
i wake up, i wake up screaming
9-1-1, no one hears my cries
i break up, i wake up screaming
