  • I can't tell if I'm dreaming
    I'm not sleeping anymore
    (Am I falling to pieces?)
    Will you wake me when it's over
    Nothing makes sense anymore
    (Am I falling to pieces?)

    I won't dwell on tomorrow
    'Cause it feels like such a waste of time
    And it cuts me from the inside
    But I know I'm gonna be alright

    My eyes are wide open
    Build me up, build me up to tear me down
    Sick of going through the motions
    You're the gravity that keeps me falling
    Whoa oh oh, whoa oh oh
    Giving up, giving up so you should know
    My eyes are wide open
    You're the gravity that keeps pulling me down

    Still stuck going nowhere
    Been here many times before
    Never knowing the reason
    Blocking out all the voices
    Screaming just to be ignored
    Were never given a reason

    I won't never dwell on tomorrow
    'Cause it feels like such a waste of time
    And it cuts me from the inside
    But I know I'm gonna be alright
    Forgiven, forgotten
    Not looking for apologies
    It feels like I'm broken
    But I know I'm gonna be alright

    My eyes are wide open
    Build me up, build me up to tear me down
    Sick of going through the motions
    You're the gravity that keeps me falling
    Whoa oh oh, whoa oh oh
    Giving up, giving up so you should know
    My eyes are wide open
    You're the gravity that keeps pulling me down

    Whoa oh oh
    Build me up, build me up to tear me down
    Whoa oh oh
    Giving up, giving up so you should know
    Whoa oh oh
    Build me up, build me up to tear me down
    Whoa oh oh
    You're the gravity that keeps pulling me down

    I can't tell if I'm dreaming
    I'm not sleeping anymore
    (Am I falling to pieces?)

    My eyes are wide open
    Build me up, build me up to tear me down
    Sick of going through the motions
    You're the gravity that keeps me falling
    Whoa oh oh, whoa oh oh
    Giving up, giving up so you should know
    My eyes are wide open
    You're the gravity that keeps pulling me down (Ooh)
    You're the gravity that keeps pulling me down (Ooh)
    I'm giving up, giving up so you should know

    Whoa oh oh
    Build me up, build me up to tear me down
    Whoa oh oh
    Giving up, giving up so you should know

    I can't tell if I'm dreaming
    I'm not sleeping anymore
