    Wake up call,
    To make me realize,
    As the tears welled up in my eyes,
    How much I still care.
    I went away,
    Expecting to feel the same way.
    Feeling like I didn’t want anything to do with you,
    Anymore, and that we were through.
    That’s how I left it…

    Wake up call,
    When you took that wake up fall,
    Fueled by your need for speed,
    And you got greedy…
    You got your fill,
    As the story unfolds,
    It ends with you,
    Colliding with a streetlamp,
    And your car being totaled.

    Wake up call,
    These are my confessions,
    Just when I thought I said,
    All I can say…
    To you,
    To myself…
    About you and myself,
    There is still more,
    There was still more.
    All along,
    About ready to surface,
    And burst into my liquid song.

    I'm thrown,
    And I don’t know what to do
    If I'm going to tell it,
    Then I’ve got to tell it all,
    Nearly cried when I got that phone call.
    I guess I’ve got to give you,
    Part two of my confessions,
    Cause what I thought digressed,
    Is making progression.


    Your family didn’t lose you,
    And honestly before this and now,
    I don’t think that I lost you either.
    And I’m wondering if you really lost me…

    But I almost lost you…
    That does something to me.
    It makes me wonder and consider,
    That maybe the rose we had planted,
    Isn’t completely withered,
    And that me, you, we,
    Are meant to be?????
    And this wake up call…
    Am I supposed to answer it??

    Sometimes you get a second chance, sometimes not. I guess you have to ask yourself what will happen if you don't answer it. This sounded very genuine, and I liked that.
