Shake Me, Wake Me (WhenIt's Over) Lyrics

by The Supremes

All through this long and sleepless night
I hear my neighbors talking
(She don't love him)
Saying that outta my life into another's arms
You'll soon be walking

Somebody shake me, wake me, when it's over
(When it's over)
Somebody tell me that I'm dreaming
And wake me when it's over
(When it's over)

They say our love ain't what it used to be
And everyone knows but me
I close my ears not wanting to hear
But the words are loud and clear

Through these walls so thin
I hear my neighbors when they say
("She don't love him")
("She don't love him")
They say my heart's in danger
''Cause you're leaving me
For the love of a stranger

Somebody shake me, c'mon wake me somebody
(Wake me)
When it's over
(When it's over)
Tell me that I'm dreaming and wake me
When it's over
(When it's over)

Girl, you're what my heart desires
My whole world you've inspired
I can't bear to be losing you
'Cause I've loved you my whole life through

Restlessly, I pace the floor
(Shake me, wake me)
Listening 'til my name was criticized
What a fool I am not to realize
You don't want me by your side

And the tears stream down my face
I can't believe I've been replaced
If I've ever, ever dreamed before
Somebody tell me I'm dreaming, now

And then shake me, wake me somebody
When it's over
(When it's over)
Somebody tell me that I'm dreaming
And wake me when it's over
(When it's over)

C'mon and shake me, wake me somebody
When it's over
(When it's over)
