Rascal Flatts - Come Wake Me Up Lyrics

I can usually drink you right off of my mind
But I miss you tonight
I can normally push you right out of my heart
But I'm too tired to fight

Yeah the whole thing begins
And I let you sink into my veins
And I feel the pain like it's new
Everything that we were,
Everything that you said,
Everything that I did and that I couldn't do
Plays through tonight

Tonight your memory burns like a fire
With every one it grows higher and higher
And I can't get over it, I just can't put out this love
I just sit in these flames and pray that you'll come back
Close my eyes tightly, hold on and hope that I'm dreaming
Come wake me up

Turn the TV up loud just to drown out your voice, but I can't forget
Now I'm all out of ideas and baby I'm down to my last cigarette
Yeah, you're probably asleep deep inside of your dreams while I’m sitting here crying and trying to see
Yeah, wherever you are baby now I am sure you moved on and aren't thinking twice about me
And you tonight

Tonight your memory burns like a fire
With every one it grows higher and higher
I can't get over it, I just can't put out this love
I just sit in these flames and pray that you'll come back
Close my eyes tightly, hold on and hope that I'm dreaming

I know that you're movin' on
I know I should give you up
But I keep hopin' that you'll trip and fall back in love
Time's not healin' anything
Baby, this pain is worse than it ever was
I know that you can't hear me, but baby I need you to save me tonight

Tonight your memory burns like a fire
With every one it grows higher and higher
I can't get over it, I just can't put out this love
I just sit in these flames and pray that you'll come back
Close my eyes tightly, hold on and hope that I'm dreaming
Come wake me up
Oh, I'm dreaming
Come wake me up
Oh, I'm dreaming

    Wow, it sucks coming to songs like this because all the emotions come out. 😭 Never loved my parents, always felt worthless. I have made it my mission for my kids to never feel this way. Still all the pain and hurt is still after so many years.

    18 years later and I still love and miss you Karen McGill Pigg and I still think of you every single day. This song reminds me of you everytime I hear it. I kept my promise to you, I did and still do love you as much as I did when I had to let you go in 2001 and if I have to wait until I'm 70 to be with you I will. I will find you again one day soon when we will never have to say goodbye. I Love you forever Mi Amore.

  51. Donald Marshall

    The excitement and fast paced action gives me more suspence than I seek. However, the reviews show there is an audience who do well desire such stress. Much of the Rascal Flatts songs have been very interesting and all have been well produced (engineered). I have enough suspence and tragety in real life, I mostly find music to be a releif from reality. Some movies and other films bleed for songs of fatal suspence.. In movies and novels, I would like to see a happy ending that does not scroll "THE END" without showing some 15 minutes of the happy ending. Many novels and movies climax a movie while having the peiople who are in love destroying each other, 'till the end of the story, then they live with scars and in wheel chairs (Happily ever after?). Not much of a happy ending as far as I am concerned.

  52. Nancy Dee Beam

    NO!!!!! Tell that to Gillette girl too!!! No! No! No!

  53. Scorpio

    How tf did a country band get a Bugatti in their music video?

    Before one walks away from a pedestal..remember...all in...as irreplaceable

  57. Brandon Kepley

    the love of my life for almost 2 years left me and we were somewhat engaged. She left me stating that we should break up and see other people and her reason is that all we did was fighting which was mostly disagreements. I have been talking to her and she doesn't want to date me or be with me anymore and only being friends. I poured my heart out to her. It turns out it started when I was volunteering for an event where she just wanted me to spend time with her. I had no idea that was what she was wanting. we have talked about but she just still want to be friends. I want to have the love of my life back. The that was I lucky and how I was happy and loved having her by my side. having her in my life and how much i truly loved her and love being with you. the way you made me feel better when I was feeling stressed and how she made me happy and made me smile when I was sad. the times she was by my side when I needed it. Making sure I made it safe somewhere no matter where I was going. We were by each other's side through doctor visits, medical issues, hospital stays and times we had to go to the ER for each other. I want that all back. I miss her even though her and I still talk and just friends I want to get back to where the disagreements that we had was fixed by compromises and just talking it out without being an argument.

  58. Randy Wilson

    65 yrs old and broken from a divorce 4 years ago, just months short of our 40th wedding anniversary.
    Though they say time heals, for me it has only become worse.
    I lost the love of my life (*Mary) and each day life becomes more of a struggle without purpose...
    This song says it all...I can only hope that God doesn't prolong my calling as there is nothing worthwhile in my life without her...
    Pray for your relationships and cherish your soulmate...
    Randy Wilson

  95. Paul Bjorck

    There was a movie Julia Roberts was in it was about a very wealthy man that was an abusive partner to her so she went sailing one day and faked her death so she wouldn't be beaten to death trying to leave him. The movie was in the mid ninety's .

  96. Paul Bjorck

    It's amazing how people look for someone with a lot of money they don't realize how much you actually have to work to keep that wealth. While the breadwinner is out making the money the wife or husband or partner is at home at night crying because they don't see their special someone, so. Next time you look for someone make sure you try to research how much quality time you will be able to spend together otherwise it won't last. Money usually is one of the Maine causes of seperation
