Rise up from your deep sleep, baby
Wake up from your slumber
Ive got your anesthetic ready
I have got your number

Ill do everything to help you
Make a smooth transition
The coffees in the grinder
The keys in the ignition

Sleeper, arise
Wipe the sleep from your eyes
Get outta your bed
Quit playing dead

Sleeper, awake
How much time does it take?
Lie there still and Ill kiss you
Oh, how Ive missed you
Sleeper, awake

Youve slept for a thousand years
But not like Sleeping Beauty
Maybe youre the princess
Who refused to do her duty

No poisoned spinning wheel
No blood upon the singer
You just buried your alarm
And turned off the phone ringer

Sleeper, arise
Wipe the sleep from your eyes
Get outta your bed
Quit playing dead

Sleeper, awake
How much time does it take?
Lie there still and Ill kiss you
Oh, how Ive missed you
Sleeper, awake

Ah, but Im scared
One touch of your cold cold lips
Perhaps Ill join you there
But I dont care
This is a risk, this is a risk
This is a kiss, this is a kiss

Sleeper, arise
Wipe the sleep from your eyes
Get outta your bed
Quit playing dead

Sleeper, awake
How much time does it take?
Lie there still and Ill kiss you
I cant resist you
Sleeper, awake
