You used to be my closest ally
In this cold, cold world of deception and lies.
Ooh
We would defend and protect one and another.
Now I can't tell if we're enemies or lovers.

So who's gonna rescue us from ourselves?
Tell me, are we gonna wake up?
Baby, it's time for lovin'.
Are we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

Oh baby!
Where did we go wrong, baby?
Uh huh
Did this cold, cold world turn us into stone?
Well'
Now all our battle is your ego and you pride.
It's ticking like a time bomb ready to ignite.
Hurts me to fight.

So who's gonna rescue us from ourselves?
When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for loving.
Are we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for loving.
Are we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

When the smoke clears
What will we look for amongst the tears and pain?
Why must we argue over the same thing
Just to wake up and go back again?
It's never too late.
It's been too long.
Can't get it right where no one thinks they're wrong.
Got to get out of bed and take a look at what's going on.

Oh
When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for loving.
When we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for loving.
When we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

(shout) When we gonna wake up, baby?
It's time for lovin'.
When we gonna wake up, my baby
Before it's too late?

Oh baby (wake up)
Oh darlin' (wake up)
When we gonna wake up? (wake up)
When we gonna take a look and see (wake up)
What's going on (wake up)
Oh what's going on (wake up)
We've spent so much time (wake up)
And we're about to lose it all (wake up)
Oh baby baby baby (wake up)
Said I need you baby (wake up)
Oh I need my baby home (wake up)
Bring my baby back to me (wake up)

Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
