“Today, I’m not so strong” ~ Norah Jones, “Wake Me Up”
Sometimes, the words we most want have already been taken by someone else. More often than not, the person who preceded us, has brought the words together so well that there is no point in trying to improve upon them. Such is the case with Norah Jones’s song, “Wake Me Up.”
Wake Me Up lyrics
Wake me up when it’s over,
Wake me up when it’s done,
When he’s gone away and taken everything,
Wake me up.
Wake me up when the skies are clearing,
When the water is still,
’cause I will not watch the ships sail away so,
Please say you will.
If it were any other day,
This wouldn’t get the best of me.
But today I’m not so strong,
So lay me down with a sad song,
And when it stops then you know I’ve been,
Gone too long.
But don’t shake me awake,
Don’t bend me or I will break,
Come find me somewhere between my dreams,
With the sun on my face.
I will still feel it later on,
But for now I’d rather be asleep.
More later. Peace.
