I Don't Want To Wake Up

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

I got a big ol' head filled with gears that crush and grind
perpetually pensive, so serious all the time
you ease my mind and sweeten the thoughts I think
I don't want to wake up from this dream

I get distanced and detached, keep to myself
tossing all my pennies into a wishing well
wishing and praying you might stay with me
I don't want to wake up from this dream

oh my baby, my darling
oh my baby, my darling girl
you rock my world apart at the seams
I don't want to wake up from this dream

you love me so tender, love me so mean
love me so dirty bring a poor boy to his knees
I keep it real with you and you keep it real with me
I don't want to wake up from this dream

life is too short for living in the past
only thing I know for sure is don't nothing last
I'm holding on to the moment like a thief
I don't want to wake up from this dream

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
