  • As I lay down on the bed
    Try'na come to terms with what has just been said
    I don't know where I should look or what to say
    Is this happening to us today?

    If I could then I would scream
    I'd wipe the tears off of my face
    Wake me up if it's a dream
    This is more than I can take
    I'd give everything I own
    If someone else could take my place
    Will someone else please take my place?

    How can life be so unfair?
    I can't breathe, in fact I'm choking on the air
    It's all over, I can see it in on your eyes
    Pull my hand down, heavily I sigh

    If I could then I would scream
    I'd wipe the tears off of my face
    Wake me up if it's a dream
    This is more than I can take
    I'd give everything I own
    If someone else could take my place
    Will someone else please take my place?

    If I could then I would scream
    I'd wipe the tears off of my face
    Wake me up if it's a dream
    This is more than I can take
    I'd give everything I own
    If someone else could take my place
    Will someone else please take my place? Writer/s: GREG KURSTIN, KAREN POOLE, LILY ALLEN
