wake up to the real world lyrics – pretty maids

you take a trip down memory lane
back in the childhood days
when everyday was an innocent game
and life a fairy tale

you’re a 21st century girl
and hope is all you’ve got

place your bets on happy endings
you know you’re dreaming
just pretending you’re not

you hide away in colourful dreams
from the dark of night
sick of man, sick of extremes
and the world outside

you face the day with false illusions
made up dreams and blind confusion

step into it
open up your eyes
wake up to the real world
sleeping beauty
you still fantasize
wake up to the real world

what’s it like in the world where you are
in your secret place
do you feel love healing your scars
do you feel embraced

there your mind is free to wander
where no one’s gonna steal your thunder

step into it
open up your eyes
wake up to the real world
sleeping beauty
you still fantasize
wake up to the real world
face the music, don’t you realize
you’re living in the real world
sleeping beauty
out of your disguise
wake up to the real world

living in a strange reality
you only see what you wish to see

step into it
open up your eyes
wake up to the real world
sleeping beauty
you still fantasize
wake up to the real world
face the music, don’t you realize
you’re living in the real world
sleeping beauty
out of your disguise
wake up to the real world
wake up to the real world
wake up to the real world
wake up to the real world
