Wakin’ Up Tired

You know what the Gurus mean when they talk about Wakin’ up tired:

Oh, the nights are long
And I’m so tired of waking up tired,
Man, they just drag on and on
And I’m so tired of waking up tired.
The company I’m keeping
Won’t let me get my sleep in.

Oh, I hate the light
And I’m so tired of waking up tired.
The morning sun is getting way too bright
And I’m so tired of waking up tired.
If I was worth a fortune
I’d never leave my bedroom
I just wanna stay right here, safe and sound.

Oh, I have to go
But I’m so tired of waking up tired.
The lights are on but there is no-one home
‘Cos I’m so wired from waking up tired.
I need a month of Sundays
To help me cope with Mondays,
I just wanna stay right here, safe and sound.
Blankets pulled up to my ears, safe and sound

  2. Mate,many moons ago(late ’80’s-I think?)I supported these guys in a band I was playing in called Le’ Blitz(even that name’s ’80’s)and today that gig still sticks in my head as 1 of the best. All nice guys excepting the guitarist(Brad Shepherd)Dave was very cool. No ego,all human.
