“Wake Up Screaming” – Paul Stanley

livetowin

Album : Live to Win (2006)

Music and Lyrics : Paul Stanley/Desmond Child/Andreas Carlsson

In a bed in my room

 All wrapped up in my own cocoon

 In my head I see you

 Like I’m stuck in a déjà-vu

 

 And it’s always the same mind games

 It’s a dangerous situation, insane

 It’s a warp on my soul and I’ve lost all control

 

When I’m all alone and I dream of you

I wake up, I wake up screaming

9-1-1, no one hears my cries

I break up, I wake up screaming

 

Why must I grieve

For a lie that I still believe

It’s a waste, what a sin

It’s a fight I can never win

 

Anywhere that I go, you go

Baby, even in my own reflection, you show

Like a ghost by my side with a hold on my mind

 

When I’m all alone and I dream of you

I wake up, I wake up screaming

9-1-1, no one hears my cries

I break up, I wake up screaming

 

Oh…

 

On and on

I’m running in slow motion

‘Till the dawn

When the morning saves me…

 

When I’m all alone and I dream of you

I wake up, I wake up screaming

9-1-1, no one hears my cries

I break up, I wake up screaming

All alone and I dream of you

I wake up, I wake up screaming

9-1-1, no one hears my cries

I break up, I wake up screaming

Why this song

“Wake Up Screaming” might just be the best song by dear Paul.

It tells the story of all of us who suffered the painful absence at least once.
