lyrics

I've been wandering and wondering
What I oughtta do if I ever leave this bed
A little ignition on a little ambition
Oughtta knock these cobwebs from my head.
Oh, mama, I'm so tired
Oh, mama, I'm so tired
Please wake me up.

I've been thinking I oughtta be thanking
All you people who left me alone
But feeling no pain's still a helluva shame
When it means feeling nothing down to the bone.
Oh, mama, I'm so tired
Oh, mama, I'm so tired
Please wake me up.

I've been letting go
Since she let me know
I didn't figure in her plan
I live in a cold place
A half-empty space
They call home to the hollow man.

I've been feeling the weight of the world
Crashing down around my head
My EKG is laughing at me
I'm a couple of beats away from dead.
Oh, mama, I'm so tired
Oh, mama, I'm so tired
Please wake me up.
Wake me up
Wake me up
Wake me up.
