Song of the Day: 08/31/09

It’s the last day of August and in my mind it’s the last day of summer.  This song is very summer-y to me.  In fact their entire discography just reminds me of driving with the windows down, wind blowing in your hair, volume cranked up until the bass is vibrating the world around you–all summer imagery for me.  I love them even though some strongly dislike the lead vocals–but of course they are wrong.  It’s catchy, it’s fun, and it’s awesome that New Wave is coming back, baby!

So, here you are–Sunny’s Last Day of summer Song.  And when you listen–try very hard to pretend that this song doesn’t seem like it’s written specifically for me.  I don’t relate to this one at all!  Nope, no way, no how!  Except it feels like every word, every line, every verse is cutting my heart up with a razor.  Ahem.

The Sounds: No One Sleeps When I’m Awake

I’ve seen people losing all of their faith
Before they knew what they were looking for
I swore I’d never ever do it again, ’til this day
Words are all I have, to give, to you
You never seem to see it my way
Standing in the shadows I hear, people say
I got confessions to make, listen up!
No one sleeps when I’m awake

The dreams I dream the song I sing for you
they’re coming from my heart
Is my message getting through?
You know it hurts so bad just like I knew that it would
but I’d do it again, do it again if I could
Do it again if I could

I don’t think you know what it’s like
You should be careful what you’re wishing for
and try to set your ego aside, you will find
A false peace of mind
You fall, behind and everybody’s getting tired of you
Standing in the shadows I hear, people say
I got confessions to make, listen up!
No one sleeps when I’m awake

[Chorus]

Hey, Hey, Hey I want you to know, know, know, know
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey

‘Cause the dreams that I dream and the songs that I sing
When I lost myself it had a different meaning
Shut down and closed imagine all of those
Hundreds of dreams taking place around you

It hurt so bad just like I knew that it would
But I’d do it again, do it again if I could
But I’d do it again, do it again if I could
I’d do it again, I’d do it again, I’d do it again
I’d do it again if I could
