NO ONE SLEEPS WHEN I'M AWAKE


Our good friends, The Sounds, also performed this on Letterman. Metric is scheduled to appear on Letterman this Friday as well, as I think they taped their performance yesterday. Lookin' forward to it, true believers.

LYRICS

I've seen people losing all of their faith
before they knew what they were looking for
I swore I'd never ever do it again
till this day

Words are all I have to give to you
you never seem to see it my way
Standing in the shadows I hear
people say

I've got confessions to make
listen up
no one sleeps when I'm awake

The dreams I dream
the song I sing for you
they're coming from my heart
is my message getting through?
You know it hurts so bad
just like i knew that it would
but I'd do it again
do it again if I could
do it again if I could.

I don't think you know what it's like
you should be careful what you're wishing for
and try to set your ego aside
you will find
a false piece of mind
you fall behind
and everybody's getting tired of you
standing in the shadows i hear
people say

I've got confessions to make
listen up
no one sleeps when i'm awake

The dreams I dream
the song I sing for you
and they're coming from my heart
is my message getting through?
You know it hurts so bad
just like i knew that it would
but I'd do it again
do it again if I could

Hey heeey heeey
i want you to know (know know know...)
hey hey heeeeeeeeeeeeey heeeeeeey

Cause the dreams that i dream
and the songs that i sing
when I lost myself and a different meaning
Shot down and post, imagine although it's
hundreds of dreams
Taking place around you

It hurts so bad
just like I knew that it would
but I'd do it again, I'd do it again if i could.
but I'd do it again, I'd do it again if I could.

I'd do it again
I'd do it again
I'd do it again
I'd do it again if I could!
