Wake me up, slap my face
Draw me closer in to your embrace

'Cause nobody wants to be the butt of every joke
And nobody wants to be the one to pull the rope
So you harden your shell, slowly losing yourself

And now I'm close but not touching
And I'm cold but not freezing
And I'm only alive, only alive
Briefly

Can you feel, could you love?
Are you further now from where you started?
I bet you do enough just to get by
Don't you?

'Cause nobody wants to be the butt of every joke
And nobody wants to be the one who's full of hope
And a cop's light goes by and the moon lights the night

And now I'm close, but not touching
And I'm cold, but not freezing
And I'm only alive, only alive
Briefly

And you're a starlight that shines
For a moment in time
In time

GRIFFIN, KEVIN
