I been lookin’ for somethin’, that I couldn’t resist
And I can’t find no reason, any reason for this
Talkin’ to you is just like, talkin’ to the cops
It’s too much aggravation, and I just want it to stop
I’d rather be like an eagle, flyin’ high
Above a mountain top

In the middle of summer, I heard the mission bell ring
When I mistook you for sunshine, it didn’t mean anything
And now they’re makin’ a movie, about the end of the line
Draw your own conclusion, ‘bout how the stars are aligned
‘Cuz the stuff that you’re usin’, it’s just a matter of time

Ooooooh… I’m still awake
Nah I’m not sleepin’
I’m wide awake
Well I was dreamin’
My eyes were closed
Ah, but I was fakin’
My heart was achin’
But now I’m done
