Stephanie Mabey - Wake Up Dreaming Lyrics



He sells office supplies in his name tag and tie
Oh, they complete his secret identity
Unknowing citizens shop for ballpoint pens
To them he's just the guy who rings them up

And he can't shake the feeling that this whole world's asleep
He's full of vision no one else can see
But soon he'll make it real 'cause he knows how to keep believing
Wake up dreaming

On fifteen minute breaks, he fills his sketchbook page with
Characters sworn to protect the earth
And they save human kind from evil masterminds
They're his only hope in a sea of envelopes

And he can't shake the feeling that this whole world's asleep
He's full of vision no one else can see
But soon he'll make it real 'cause he knows how to keep believing
Wake up dreaming

And he keeps sketching fire escapes and back doors
Knows there's got to be more to his life

'Cause he can't shake the feeling that this whole world's asleep
He's full of vision no one else can see
But soon he'll make it real 'cause he knows how to keep believing
Wake up dreaming

    Lyrics

    He sells office supplies, in his nametag and tie
    Oh, they complete his secret identity
    Unknowing citizens shop for ballpoint pens
    To them he's just the guy who rings them up

    And he can't shake the feeling
    That this whole world's asleep
    He's full of vision no one else can see
    But soon he'll make it real
    'Cause he knows how to keep believing
    Wake up dreaming

    On fifteen-minute breaks he fills his sketchbook page
    With characters sworn to protect the earth
    And they save humankind from evil masterminds
    They're his only hope in a sea of envelopes

    And he can't shake the feeling
    That this whole world's asleep
    He's full of vision no one else can see
    But soon he'll make it real
    'Cause he knows how to keep believing
    Wake up dreaming

    And he keeps sketching fire escapes and back doors
    Knows there's got to be more to his life

    'Cause he can't shake the feeling
    That this whole world's asleep
    He's full of vision no one else can see
    But soon he'll make it real
    'Cause he knows how to keep believing
    Wake up dreaming

    Is it bad that I imagined a kid who was dying not telling anyone and trying to fight his sickness alone and eventually dying and the reason he didn't tell anyone was because "I didn't want to upset my mum and dad." I cried so hard this entire song cause Of imagining it like that. :(
