Come to me, come to me
Don’t slip away too far
You can be, you can be
Too much the way you are

I would love to stay, but really
Call me someday when you wake up

Please believe, please believe
I’m not in the mood for a fight
Can’t you see, can’t you see
I’ve only turned out the light

I’d love to say sincerely
It’ll be ok, as it once was
I don’t want to stay and I know it’s early
Call me someday when you wake up

Wake up
