Song Lyric: Falling Awake by Gary Jules


Falling Awake
-Gary Jules


Eagle in the dark
Feathers in the pages
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattleing their cages
Found a way to blue
Another ghost to follow
Said it's only up to you
It's the hardest pill to swallow

You never get to choose
You live on what they send you
And you know they're gonna use
Things you love against you
One foot in the grave
One foot in the shower
There's never time to save
You're paying by the hour

And that's just the way it goes
Falling awake
And that's just the way it goes

Slipping through the bars
Aware of the danger
Of riding in the cars
Taking candy from strangers
And you're never out of hand
Never out of pocket
I'm super sonic man
Do you wanna buy a rocket

Well that's just the way it goes
Falling awake
Falling awake
And that's just the way it goes
Falling awake
Falling awake

Eagle in the dark
Feathers in the pages
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattleing their cages
I could learn to play the game
Could learn to run the hustle
If I only had the brains
The money or the muscle
