lyrics

B F# E Em
I like waking when the world is quiet, when the sun’s still down and the moon’s still high.
B F# C# flat5 E G A B
So if you haven’t had the chance to try it, try waking when the world’s still quiet
i like waking when the world’s so still, street lights are still on before the sunlights spills
and I like knowing the world is laid down dreaming so I wake up when the world is quiet
I wake up when the world is quiet

CHORUS 1
Esus2 Eb m
Perhaps to you it’s just a silly thing
C#m G#/G# 7th
to wake before bells ring, even times when you don’t have to
Esus2 Eb m
and see the world before most have a chance,
C#m F#
before we start day’s dance and city’s singing fills the air

VERSE 2
I like waking when the world still sleeps, still caught up in their dreams
after counting their sheep
the reasons quite simple though it’s a sleep deprived diet
when you’re waking when the world is quiet

Intro 2X

CHORUS 2
Maybe for you it’s all too much to ask
with all the day’s tough tasks, it’s never fun when you’re so weary
See the world before most have a chance,
before we start day’s dance and city’s singing fills the air
