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

about

Jonathan Burks Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro"

here's some pro tips:

1) Keep a scream journal. Scream into a camera or microphone at least once a day. Any word or sound will work. "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" seems to work for me.

2) Dance for 5 minutes daily. Dance on the way to the bathroom or kitchen. Dance as ugly as you can.

3) Make funny faces. Sit in front of a mirror and get strange.
