You follow your feelin's, you follow your dreams
You follow the leader into the trees
And what's in there waitin', neither one of us knows
You gotta keep one eye open the further you go

You never dreamed you'd go down on one knee, but now
Who could have seen, you'd be so hard to please somehow
You feel like a poor boy, a long way from home
You're just a poor boy, a long way from home

And it's wake up time
Time to open up your eyes, and rise, and shine

You spend you life dreamin', runnin' 'round in a trance
You hang out forever and still miss the dance
And if you get lucky, you might find someone
To help you get over the pain that will come

Yeah, you were so cool back in high school, what happened?
You were sure not to have your spirits dampened
But you're just a poor boy alone in this world
You're just a poor boy alone in this world

And it's wake up time
Time to open up your eyes, and rise, and shine

Well, if he gets lucky, a boy finds a girl
To help him to shoulder the pain in this world
And if you follow your feelin's and you follow your dreams
You might find the forest there in the trees

Yeah, you'll be alright, you're just gonna take time, but now
Who could have seen you'd be so hard to please somehow
You're just a poor boy, a long way from home
You're just a poor boy, a long way from home

And it's wake up time
Time to open up your eyes, and rise, and shine

'Cause it's wake up time
Time to open up your eyes, and rise, and shine
