There once was a ragged man 
Who was not just a tyrant 
He would take, but sometimes he'd give something back 
Then there were the ones that loved him so 
They would get emotional 
When they thought of all the things that they should have had 
Oh isn't it sad? 
But you can pull it back, if you just...
 

Wake up
You could do much better if you 
Wake up 
Your life could be much brighter 
With your eyes wide 
And a spirit that's alive 
Oh don't you think it's time 
To leave the past behind?

There once was a lovely soul 
Into the wilderness she'd go 
'Cos there was nothing here that could hold her back 
In the darkness she would find 
It's not as bad as what lay behind 
She'll pull it back, she'll pull it back…
If she...

Wakes up 
She could do much better if she 
Wakes up 
Oh, her life could be much brighter 
With her eyes wide 
And a spirit that's alive

But oh the sadness
Of all those times 
And all the touches 
She left, but in her mind

Oh, lovely one 
Oh, you're beautiful 
Oh, there's more than this 
Are you alive?

Wake up 
Time can be a healer if you 
Wake up 
You could see much clearer 
With your eyes wide 
And a spirit that's alive
If you

Wake up
You could do much better if you 
Wake up 
Oh your life could be much brighter 
With your eyes wide 
And a spirit that's alive 
Don't you think it's time 
You came alive?
