Wake Tomorrow Lyrics
Hang on tight it's happening / Your head in my lap and the tears run dry / We both know why / The strain of the moment is growing / You're well beyond break point but no one knows / Hold on baby, hold on

You try to fight you try to drive us apart
but I won't break down
If we barely hold together one more night,
the dark will fade to light

We could wake tomorrow / or We could die tonight
We could separate in sorrow / or suffer through the night Suddenly all the small things disappear from sight
We could wake tomorrow if we stay alive tonight

The woman who always knew best / The one who took care of you all your life / You lost her way too soon, indeed I can tell that you've lost all will, I can tell that there's no way to comfort you / You're pushing me away

You call the play to throw the game when it's hard
But I won't break down
So let me hold you together one more night
The dark will fade to light
