Shake Me Awake

So shake me awake before I fall into the slumber I know so well. The passive decisions, the color me quick the oh-so-struck feeling of feeling so sick. I'm never without indecision. I'm strengthened by ties which don't bind. I'm called to occasion by singing and sunlight and moments you speak to me kind. I'll cuddle up to the right crisis and feel my way straight through the dark to hold up your sky when you're crying your eyes out and ending dreams before they start. So hold up my head as I'm sleeping tonight and smooth back my hair with your palm. You spend me too quickly and I'll start to dissolve so hold onto me tightly, my dearest, my love.
