Wake Up Dead Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

When I was younger she'd come to me in dreams 

Her face was hidden in the mountain streams 

Her voice disguised as the sound of the wind 

The rustling of leaves, she would call from within 

 

Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said 

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead 

 

So many memories of those years have passed 

Beyond the confusion, that thought would last forever 

The countless veils that I wore like clothes 

Have been stripped away, now stand here exposed 

 

Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said 

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead 

 

In the night when the moon casts no shadows at all 

We sat by the fire as she started to call 

Out to all who would hear that the death of what's dead 

Is the birth of what's living and her words filled my head 

 

Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said 

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead 

 

It's the life that lies sleeping when you think you're awake 

Forever is real and the rest is just fake 

And though volumes are written on this subject alone 

She used three simple words and she brought it all home 

 

Wake up, wake up, wake up, she said 

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up dead
