Walking Awake

“Walking Awake”
written by Glen Phillips and/or Todd Nichols
I woke up in the middle of my life
I can’t remember the dream
years passed like bridges from a train
blurred scenery is all I’ve ever seen

I found something in my pocket
beneath a ball of string

walking awake

I got tired of putting things aside
I got sick of all this waiting
I got through shouting at everything
And thinking I should be afraid

I found something I’d forgotten
I never thought I’d see walking awake

walking awake
walking awake

I woke up in the middle of my life
I can’t remember the dream
An empty passage on an ampty train
Never touching anything

I found a picture in my wallet
but it don’t look like me, no

walking awake (x4)

walking awake
walking awake
I’m walking awake
walking awake

yeah (x12)

NOTES: This unreleased song was performed live a few times in 1990.
