Wake Me Gently (5:03)

(Alice Cooper, Dick Wagner, Bob Ezrin)

I was scared to death, afraid to close my eyes
And find that I was gone
Like every other one who left before the dawn
I vanished in the air
Am I still there

Wake me gently if you can
Wake me gently, just touch my hand
Wake me gently, pull my sleeve
'Cause where I'm at is where I want to leave

And in my sleep I look so lifeless on this bed
Laid out on satin sheets
This dream's a novel that I don't dare complete
No happy endings read
I think the hero's dead

Wake me gently if you can
Wake me gently, just touch my hand
Wake me gently, pull my sleeve
'Cause where I'm at is where I want to..

Leave me to my slumber
And I'll never come home
Please help me, I'm frightened
Of what's going on (What's going on)

And if I can't wake up will I be all alone
A stranded orphan here
Or will I bump into some other wandering soul
And will they talk to me
Somebody, somebody please rescue me

Wake me gently if you can
Wake me gently, just touch my hand
Wake me gently, pull my sleeve
'Cause where I'm at is where I want to leave
I wanna leave
I wanna leave
I wanna wake up
I wanna leave
I don't wanna stay
I wanna leave
I wanna go
I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Just wake me up
I wanna go home
Wake me up please
'Cause I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Wake me
Wake me
