Story Behind the Song

Sometimes, lyrics fall together like a good game of tetris, with the perfect shape and number of pieces. That's what writing this song felt like.

Lyrics

Sleeping beauty
© 2006
words and music by John Girard
* * *
one look in her eyes, and you?d agree
although she?s not blind, she can not see
all around her head, voices
telling her she?s no one, she feels dead

she wakes up each day, does what she?s told
for someone her age, she feels so old
all the years around people
negative and putting her down

another sleeping beauty to kiss
somehow they never seem to notice it
her grace and kindness always being missed
when are you ever gonna wake up?
don?t you know you?re beautiful?
don?t you know you?re beautiful?

she takes out a loan, she goes to school
comes out of the fog, she?s no one?s fool
all around her head, people
telling her she?s someone, she?s not dead

another sleeping beauty is kissed
she wakes up, wonders about all the things she?s missed
she tells her family but they?re not impressed
when are you ever gonna wake up? she says,
?when are you ever gonna wake up?
(wake up) don?t you know I?m beautiful?
(wake up) don?t you know I?m beautiful??
she says, ?don?t you know I?m beautiful??

(guitar solo)

another sleeping beauty to kiss
somehow they never seem to notice it
her grace and kindness always being missed
when are you ever gonna wake up?
I said, when are you ever gonna wake up?
(wake up) don?t you know you?re beautiful?
(wake up) don?t you know you?re beautiful?
I said, don?t you know you?re beautiful?
