  • Sleep delays my life (get up, get up)
    Where does time go? (get up, get up, get up)
    I don't know, oh
    Sleep, sleep, sleepy head (get up, get up, get up)
    Wake it up, up (get up, get up)
    You've got all your life (way up ahead)
    (Get up, get up, get up)

    Dreams, they complicate my life (dreams, they complement my life)

    I've seen you lay and pine (get up, get up)
    I've seen you lay and pine (get up, get up)
    Life is rough, rough (get up, get up, get up)
    I've seen you laying down (get up)
    With the loving kind (get up, get up)
    I know life is hard, hard (where goes your time?)
    Where to turn, where to turn? (get up, get up)

    Dreams, they complicate my life (dreams, they complement my life)

    D-d-dream time

    Dreams, they complicate my life (dreams, they complement my life)
    This time, no escape, I wake up (get up, get up)
    Get up, get up
    Get up
    Get up
    Get up, get up, get up Writer/s: John Michael Stipe, Michael E. Mills, Peter Lawrence Buck, William Thomas Berry
