  • It isn't enough
    To start a riot
    Distort the light beam
    Until I like me
    It isn't enough
    If this is real life
    I'll stick to dreaming
    Come see what I see

    Feeling like
    If this is life
    I'm choosing fiction
    Oh, whoa, oh, whoa
    Call it faith, call it fate
    The fantasy's the same (uh)

    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can do anything
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can go anywhere
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can be anyone
    So don't wake me up, don't wake me up
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can do anything
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can go anywhere
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can be anyone
    So don't wake me up, don't wake me up

    Level it up
    Delete my history
    Choose how you see me
    And the future's easy
    Level it up
    In here I'm winning
    Defeat the big boss
    Game over, your loss

    Feeling like
    This ain't life
    I'm choosing fiction
    Oh, whoa, oh, whoa
    Call it faith, call it fate
    The fantasy is the same

    So
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can do anything
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can go anywhere
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can be anyone
    So don't wake me up, don't wake me up
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can do anything
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can go anywhere
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can be anyone
    So don't wake me up, don't wake me up

    Hope I never wake up
    I never get tired
    No, no, no, no, no
    No, no, no, no, no
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can do anything
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can go anywhere
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can be anyone
    Don't wake me up, don't wake me up

    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can do anything
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can go anywhere
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can be anyone
    So don't wake me up, don't wake me up
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can do anything
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can go anywhere
    When I'm dreaming tonight
    I can be anyone
    So don't wake me up, don't wake me up
