Wake Up From Our Dream -By Alysse

Written By: Alysse Ernewein

Wake Up From Our Dream – A song about the watershed
By Alysse Ernewein

Clear-cut horizon
Won’t you open our eyes and
Please show us what we’re doing
To this beautiful earth we’re losing

Take us by the hand
Show us how to make a stand
We’re the ones in command
Yet we don’t really understand

CHORUS
Our wants and needs
And our thoughts to be pleased
Isn’t worth the world around us
In twenty years, we’ll say
Why didn’t we fix it that day?
But it’s not too late to change it
So get on your feet and repeat
Save some trees, you need to breathe
We all need air, it’s not fair
If we don’t take care
Of what we need
We better wake up from our dream

All those tracks we leave
In a way we all are thieves
Rearranging the water’s destination
Doesn’t steer you clear of any complications, no

The water will run dry
And those tears in your eyes
Will be our only supply
Your only question is, WHY?

CHORUS
Our wants and needs
And our thoughts to be pleased
Isn’t worth the world around us
In twenty years, we’ll say
Why didn’t we fix it that day?
But it’s not too late to change it
So get on your feet and repeat
Save some trees, you need to breathe
We all need air, it’s not fair
If we don’t take care
Of what we need
We better wake up from our dream

Step by step we ruin it
Thought by thought we pollute it
We can stop it all now
Gotta make that difference
Gotta clear that distance
We can scheme it all out
But first
We better wake up from our dream

INSTRUMENTAL

We better wake up from our dream….

Fast Forward
Dedicated to my friend, Riley

By Alysse Ernewein

The first time I strolled the street ?to meet you
?I had a fake lip ring with my feet tripping ?
Just to greet you?
But first impressions ?
Aren’t the best for me?
Little did you know I was your best friend?
To be?

(CHORUS)
?Fast forward a few more years
?We’re sharing pillows and we’re sharing tears
?All those secrets that we once have said?
Come rushing back into our heads?
We’ll take a trip somewhere far from here?
As long as we’re together there is no fear
?All those times we had a blast?
But seven years goes too fast...

??Up and down the streets in our bare feet?
Only three houses away, can’t you see?
That our friendship is growing stronger, it seems
?And that you can never ever separate the dream team?

(CHORUS)

?Fast forward a few more years?
We are now Shaw Cable engineers
All those inside jokes that we have said?
Come rushing back into our heads?
We took a trip not too far from here

As long as we’re together there is no fear?
All those times we better make them last
?Cause’ seven years went too fast??

The clouds roll in?
The thunder strikes, every now and then?
Tears in your eyes?As you told us over and over again??

That you’d have to go?
You’d have to leave
?You’re on repeat so that we’d believe you?
It wasn’t your choice?
But you’d have to rejoice it?
All we had was a glimpse in the rear-view

(CHORUS)

?Fast forward a few more years
?I don’t know where you are, but I know you’re not here?
You should be, you should be near
?We’ll take a trip somewhere far from here?
As long as we’re together there is no fear?
All those times we better make them last?
But seven years goes so fast...?So fast…
